    I just got a tokay gecko last night. It's pretty young, only about 4 inches to give inches long. I was misinformed about a lot of care aspects before I got it. I've rectified the type and heating of enclosure but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how much it needs to eat, how often, and what to do about calcium. So far over the last two days it's eaten 6 large mealworms and two large crickets. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I feed my adult male using a tub. So I put a handful of feeders in the tub and the tub in one corner. That way he can just eat as many as he wants and the food can't escape. If there are any left in the morning I just put them back.

    Unsure on how often you need to dust for a youngster.

    This is what I mean regarding feeding. Here's my adult male Zeus.

    I knew @basin79 would respond ASAP. I think he is the only if not one of the few who keep tokay geckos as pets in here. A bit rare and unusual pet. But very cool

    From my lizard knowledge. You need to dust your crickets every time you feed it. As long as it is healthy. Heating is always 75 at night and 80-100 at day.
