are living in houses and other buildings. 
    The  Tokó can be seen
as very useful, because they feed their selves with catching mosquitoes in the houses and other buildings.Though many Filipinos don't like these  little creatures, like many people  don't like spiders, these 'mga toko' are in fact innocent.  
The mga toko stick with their feet to ceilings and walls. They never come down and even disappear quickly if a human being is coming near.
