add much much more coverage the cage should be engulfed in plants and hiding places. And just leave them alone! thats what I do and mine are thriving.

Had them with the plants in there for about a year. All they did was hide behind stuff and never came out. Then one day after cleaning the cage, the plants were going to be replaced so they didnt get put back in. That night we have never seen them so active. I thought I was gonna have to put a brick on the top so they couldn’t pick the lid up. So I guess the foliage thing is due to the personality of the tokay. Mine if you give lots and lots of cover, turn blah. minimize the cover and they turn into a pet you can sit and watch all night. who knows....

I have 2 female tokays. When i first got them i wanted to get them "tamed down". One of them hates the world. But eventually we could kind of pick it up, it would like growl at us but we would only pick this one up for cage cleaning. The other we actually got where we could free hand it without the welding gloves on. They’re little suction cup feet feel so weird on your hand and arm and stuff. And you can feel their little nails. The mean one though...she’ll dive out of the enclosure with mouth open trying to eat my face.

that is how both of ours got their names... "" will do a back flip to try and get your hand, arm, what ever she can latch on to... gravedigger will chill while you pick him up and just as soon as you put him in the carrier (to clean the cage) he goes bananas. he is crazy.... been lucky he hasnt gotten out yet....

Haha I guess the names do fit them pretty well. Mine are Cyanide and Happiness. They took over my boa’s old cage so they had alot of room inside (computer armoire) and alot of vertical room. I still think they are evil.

make sure they are not both males. males shouldn’t be housed together. You can house a male and a female together. They need to be able to hide,and shouldn’t be kept in an area that has a lot of traffic.(kids,other pets,etc.)
