This is a Tockay Gecko or in Philippines we called it as “Tuko”. The second largest in the Gecko Family and with striking color spots on its body. It’s nocturnal and feed on most common insects. It is also very popular for having amazing sticky feet. They have loud vocalization sound which they use as a mating call. Some people make them as pets. But today, here in the Philippines and other Asian countries, this animal is threatened to be endangered soon because of the unlimited hunting. Government authorities say it is illegal but the hunters won’t stop due to its high enticing selling price of foreign buyers or pet traders. They say that Chinese have tapped into the Tokay’s medicinal property specifically the Tokay’s enzyme that cures AIDS, cancer or other illnesses.
