Q: Smooth Sided Toad questions
Posted By:


Today I added a beautiful Bufo guttatus to my collection. The only problem is: Silly me acted like a noob and bought on impluse :sighhs:.. And come to find out, there isn't much in the way of care sheets for these guys online. So now I'm extra screwed.
So, I'm hoping someone on here can help, or at least point me in the right direction.
Has anyone on here ever owned a Smooth Sided Toad?

the only thing I saw was that they will eat crickets and small rodents, they will also grow to be about 9 inches and they are from northern South America so I guess they need humidity

I've owned 2, a male and female pair. The one you have looks to be a female. I kept them in a 30g tank with a large water bowl they could get in and out of, the substrate I used was coco fiber that was always kept very moist, I would spray it almost everyday. I would feed them 5-6wk Ca coated crickets (make sure you have the Ca powder meant for amphibians), and super worms. The male I had was not the best hunter so sometimes I had to heard crickets toward him or hand feed him the superworms. The temp in my reptile room is around 75-80 degrees so it kept the tank warm without the help of heatpads/lights, however if the room you are keeping them in is cool I would place a heatpad underneath the tank.
