Question – I have a little baby toad, and i wanted to know how to take care if it. It has a little red spot on the side of its throat, but i think a bug just bit it. I wanted to know what to feed it, what to put it in and how to just take care of it in general.
Try to Google search and find images that match the type you have.
I had a burrowing frog who spent most it’s time underground. It ate baby crickets but it was fussy and uncomfortable and I had to force feed it for the first week.
Get it comfy in it’s habitat. Give organic potting soil (2 inches deep?) and put water into it so that it’s moist but not pooling underneath, it may take some time to absorb and get started, place a large soaking bowl in the center of a 10 gal tank for it to bathe, keep the temp warm but don’t use direct heat, do a heating pad on the side of the tank where it won’t get itself burnt, but it will get the heat.
Once it’s feeling safe, and oh, don’t handle it after placing it into it’s tank, just let it get a sense of ownership in there. Then put 2 small crickets and a tiny inch worm or a baby tomato worm. http://mulberryfarms.com/orders.htm I get tomato worms here.
The heat pad will give a nice temp, the dirt and water will feel natural, it takes time for a wild one but it might turn out to be a great thing.
You will also need to shop around for an exotic animal vet to check it out so that you won’t be catching something disgusting like pinworms from it.
