5.0 out of 5 stars Source book for gekko owners Nov. 20 1999
By Leann Christenson (leannc@ionet.net) - Published on Amazon.com
I return over and over again to use this manual when I have husbandry questions about tokays. The most useful section is Breeding.
Husbandry information on other related gekko subspecies are covered in this manual including the Golden Gecko (G. ulikovskii), White-lined gecko(Gekko vittatus),the Flying gecko (Ptychozoon kuhlii)and others.
The Introduction, General Information, and Ethnoherpetology sections contain some of the most interesting reptile reading ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Little Book on the Care of Tokay Geckos. Dec 15 2001
By James P. Zaworski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Herpetocultural Library is a series of small, inexpensive books dedicated to educating the public on the proper care and reproduction of selected reptiles and amphibians in captivity. The series founder is Phillippe de Vosjoli, and he has authored many in the series, and has recruited the services of other distinguished authors who have particular experience with particular animals. This book is an example of his utilization of two knowledgeable gecko enthuisiasts. The book is small, with 60 pages in total, but richly illustrated and full of useful and fascinating information, on selected members of the Gekkonidae, specifically the members of the genus Gekko, Ptychozoon, and Cyrtodactylus that are commonly imported via the pet trade in the USA. Specifically, the tokay gecko, Gekko gecko, is covered in great detail. The authors do a fantastic job in circumlocuting the information on care, feeding, housing, medecine, reproduction, natural history, and even folklore on these fascinating lizards. It is a must for any gecko pet keeper and enthuisiast. These wonderful animals deserve the best care in captivity, and this book gives a step by step guide to achieving this goal.
