My first question is, should I let my new tokay acclimate before I start trying to tame him? If so how long should I wait. My second question is, has anyone had their tokays play dead? I was putting him back into his tank (with a glove of course) and I laid him down on his side, in the substrate, and he didn't move a muscle! He laid there on his side without even breathing. I watched him for about 30 seconds, and then poked him and he bit and ran up the glass. Is this common? He looks very healthy, and full of spunk. ?????
