 Any tips on taming?

I’ve had my Tokay’s for about 4 months and i bought them from pet smart(they were both in a tiny tank and they seemed close so i bought both not wanting to separate them), one thing I’ve noticed is that these guys do not like being held or messed with at all. i assume that this has to do with their past and the fact that they’re wild caught geckos. but is there any hope for taming?

Hi! Tokay geckos are not tame pets by nature and typically do not tame. Id avoid handling unless you need to and use a glove. They have a notorious bite. There are rare cases where they can be tame but i wouldn’t try

there is hope but Tokays are more of a "look no touch" gecko. but they can be trained to tolerate handling
