    Its fine if you want to leave this topic here but you might get more replies if it were in the herp forum. Let me know if you want me to move it.

    Well, Tokays are fairly large(it would take big pitcher to catch one-and honestly I think they could leap out of any pitcher) and aggressive, as someone said.
    If enough people put tokays in their greenhouse and they got loose....you might have a invasive species.
    I am not up on my herps, but is their any native herps you could put into your greenhouse that would not cause a problem if they got away?

    Cheers,

    Joe

    I wonder if a gecko could climb out of a nepenthes pitcher.... I mean they can climb on glass.


    We had a tokay when I was a kid. Meanest thing ever. It bit a towel and my dad had to pry it off then it got loose and ran around the walls and the cieling in the bathroom and eventually it had convulsions and died. This was all very traumatic for a 7 year old.

    Pretty big for a gecko... http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...okay_Gecko.jpg


    I don't think you should use an animal for pest control... I think pets shouldn't be used like roach motels... And besides this animal is really mean compared to other docile gecko's. If you do get one make sure it's got a nice place to bask and make sure it can't escape.

    I'd get something friendly and I wouldn't get it just because it eats bugs... you should feed it anyway, bugs or no.
