Lighting for Tokay Geckos
I have a tokay gecko and am wondering if these reptiles require any exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. I have heard that crepuscular animals do not use UV at all – is this true?
A crepuscular animal like the tokay gecko or even a leopard gecko is defi ned by its tendency to become more active, or at least more commonly seen, from about 6pm until 11am in its wild range. As you can expect, there is still plenty of natural sunlight evident over part of this period.
