Possible Tokay Gecko?

So one of my friends has a gecko and he's not sure what it is. I'm pretty sure it's a Tokay gecko, and am kinda afraid that it is because since he doesn't know what it is he just has the cage in a desert setup...



The picture is rather poor quality because it was taken with my phone, but hopefully you can get the idea.

He rarely gives him any attention, and I'm considering adopting him from him due to the fact that I fear for the gecko's health.

The gecko is about 8 inches long and extremely aggressive, and that leads me to believe a Tokay, however the colors don't seem to match up very well and I really hope it isn't since I've read that Tokay are more tropical geckos and he obviously isn't in a tropical setting.

I'd really appreciate if someone could help me identify this gecko, and maybe give me tips on whether or not I should take it (Not sure how I feel about a super aggressive gecko for a pet...) and what I could do if I do take it.
