 HELP! Toad can’t eat

Hi, I have a young toad (born in spring 2012) that my son has been keeping as a pet. He has been fine until the past week when he seems unable to eat. He tries repeatedly to eat flies, and it appears that his tongue comes out, but none of the flies stick to his tongue and he cannot eat them. Please Please help! My 5-year old son is frantic and I am afraid the toad will die soon from starvation. Thank you.

I suggest that you vary the diet a little, and in particular try some more slow-moving foods such as baby crickets, very small earthworms, waxworms, etc. a varied diet is important to keep a toad healthy, especially a young growing one. Please try some of these alternatives and keep me posted if there is any improvement.
