Description

They are a medium sized toad that reaches between 52 to 86mm snout to vent length, with females usually being slightly larger than males. The background colour varies from a light tan to a mid brown, with irregular green patches in various shades of green. They have typically warty skin and large parotid glands behind their eyes; like most toads, these glands in the skin contain poison, and make sure that predators only try to eat a toad once. If you do handle your toad, it’s very important to wash your hands both before and afterwards – the secretions can be irritating to our skin.

 

A minimum size of enclosure for a single toad would be 60x45x30cm, although bigger is always better; these animals can live in groups, so 90x45x45 would be fine for up to five individuals. The more space you can give them, the happier they will be. Make sure that they have a shallow water bowl that they can soak in if they want; remember to use dechlorinator in your tapwater and change the water for fresh every day.
