 Skink with Toad?

Should I put a blue tailed skink with an American Toad? It seems all right

I would never mix species. They can stress and disease eachother just from being a different species

From what I’ve read about both of them (and I have both myself) it’s not a good idea just on the risk that either one might try to eat the other regardless of the size and cause damage to one another. I keep mine seperate and they are both happy!

Toad skin is poisonous. If the lizard gets curious and licks it, painful vomiting or even death can follow. Also, if it climbs on the toad, its claws can damage the sensitive dermis. They share habitats in the wild by working around each other, not by staying in the same couple of square feet 24/7.

Toads are pretty gluttonous! But my skinks are pretty aggressive too! (But the toad can eat a larger prey) I’d rather not find out!
Both will bite my finger if I put it in front of them!

Those were some great shots! Loved the cane toad. And that poor anole!
I knew someone that had two american toads in a tank together, one a little smaller than the other, and after a while the bigger one ate the smaller one. (I told him he wasn’t feeding them enough.)
Here’s my american toad eating his shed.
