The focus of my research is the discrimination of size-based quantity in Tokay geckos (Gekko gecko) and is under the supervision of Klaus Zuberbühler (University of Neuchâtel), Eva Ringler and Birgit Szabo (University of Bern). The aim of the research is to find if Tokay geckos show a preference for a certain size in food and test the limits of size in the preference choice when given a choice to eat from two crickets. To complete the study even further, quantity of individuals of crickets will be tested to see if the choice depends on the number of crickets available.
