This type of Lizard called the Tokek is commonly found in Bh. They grow up to 1ft or more. They live in Bh surviving on birds eggs, young chicks, sometimes even adult birds. This is not something new it has been in Bh ever since Bh started in Malaysia.
If your Bh has colonies of this type of Lizard the nests growth will be slow. There are found especially in Bhs that located in plantations, near secondary forest, etc.
It is not surprised that it could also be found in Bhs that are located in town. If a pair of them stayed in the Bh they will live and grow there.
I caught a pair of this Tokek at my Bh in Taiping which located in the Town area. I guess they liked the cool and humid environment of my Bh which is an old pre-war building that converted into Bh.
It’s common to catch dozen of them in all sizes in Bh that is located in plantation. My friends used to kill many of them every month in his Bh near Batu Kurau.
Claimed to have high medicine value of millions of dollar for every kg. So far I wonder who is going to pay or buy it.
There are also blogs that show how it could be reared for its medicine value but so far none of my friends could find buyers of such offer, lets not talk about million ringgit, hundred ringgit also don’t have.
I guess it is a myth and everybody was excited about its medicine value. I do understand there are used in traditional Chinese medicine but it is not that expensive.
Secondly you could find them at the pet shop. I wonder those from the pet shop are the similar type that we found in our bhs?
I don’t know and I have to find out.
