 Tokay color!!

hi!!! yesterday I got my first tokay, I’m so happy, it s all I wanted since i was a child (10 years ago), he is a male, I named him Darwin, but I’m worried, when i bought it he was a bit dark, after 30 minutes in a little box he turned into black, even the brigth blue spots on his back had desapeared, he slept in his terrarium, and by noon today he was bright gorgeous blue.... i was in love jajaja, but i needed to put some coconut fiber in, so i took himjust 1 minute to do this, and..... he turned dark again, is this normal?

being moved to a new home will stress out most lizards. Give him some time to settle in and I’m sure he will be bright gorgeous blue self in no time!!

Tokays will change colors due to whether they are stressed as 1Justizn said and how they are feeling, happy or sad. i have found my two when happy are gorgeous blue and when stressed turn dark.
