 Care Sheet Submitted By:

DragonWolf3X

Years Experience:

5 to 10 Years

Species:

Fire-Bellied Toad

Other Species or Phases this Care Sheet May Cover:

They can be green or brown and are active when they want to, night or day.

Sexing and Characteristics:

The females are bigger and usually wider

Mostly Active During:

Both

Substrate and Water Needs:

They need a peat moss and soil mixture for half the tank or possibly more. they need a large water bowl in a corner that they can get in and out off. itís best to use a long flat bowl with a layer of gravel on the bottom

Lighting and UVB:

They seem to like dark better, with either a fluorescent light or natural window light, non-direct

Temperatures and Humidity:

They like tropical temps, as like a bit of a wide range of 70-85 degrees during day, and cooler at night of course. they will stand as low as 60 degrees but donít count on it. they NEED to be misted everyday, preferably more than once. a back-round coconut fiber climbing mat can help with the humidity

Heating and Equipment:

They donít really need a heat source, just maybe a light that emits some heat, but not a heat lamp, unless you like fried toad. they are somewhat low maintenance.

Caging Provided:

I have a full fledged diverse reptarium, but they need at least a long 3 gallon glass aquarium with a lid! they will escape. and they enjoy fake leaves and other stone caves and hiding places

Diet:

Carnivorous

Description of Diet:

Crickets, crickets, crickets! thatís the jest of it. they also seem to like moths and meal worms, like moths in your own home. flies are good too. no veggies.

Supplements, Nutrition and Usage:

Use a type of cricket dust, you donít really need to much of that kind of stuff, they seem to ignore it.

Maintenance:

Clean the water bowl everyday, cause they also use it as a toilet, which is why you should have a layer of gravel. and clean the walls of the cage because they climb.

Some Words on this Species:

They donít like to be held. they also like to climb on sticks, and fake plants, mine even found out how to climb up the glass. they can take down bugs their size, so donít worry how large the buggy is.
