This real taxidermy gecko skeleton is of the Tokay Gecko (Gekko gecko) which is the second largest Gecko species, attaining lengths of about 11–20 inches for males, and 7–19 inches for females, with weights of only 5.3–14.1 oz. The Tokay Gecko is a nocturnal arboreal gecko, ranging from northeast India, Bhutan, Nepal, Bangladesh, throughout Southeast Asia, Philippines to Indonesia and western New Guinea.
Males are very territorial, and will attack other male Tokays as well as other Gecko species, as well as anything else in their territory. Females lay clutches of one or two hard shelled eggs which are guarded until they hatch. Compared to other gecko species, the Tokay has a robust build, with a semi-prehensile tail, a large head and muscular jaws. Tokay Geckos feed on insects and small vertebrates. Their strong bite is needed to crack the shell of hard cockroaches that live in the rain-forests. They are also extremely strong climbers and their foot pads can support their entire weight on a vertical surface for a long amount of time without any effort.
You will receive a real taxidermy gecko skeleton similar to the reference specimen. These are real skeletons and should be handled with care as they are very fragile. Minor imperfections are to be expected.
