details.Firebelly toads are a popular pet that can live for ten to
twelve years or more if properly cared for. They are brightly
colored, active day and night, and hardy; a combination that is
hard to beat. These toads are semi-aquatic amphibians that should
be provided with both a land and water area.
Things to Remember
This means they eat mostly live insects.
Diurnal and Nocturnal
Firebelly toads are active both day and at night.
This means they need a home with both dry land and water areas.
Firebelly toads have sensitive skin, and should not be handled very
much. They can also secrete toxins from their skin, so be sure to
always wash your hands after handling them, and closely monitor
children to ensure they do the same.
Firebelly toads eat live, "gut loaded" crickets (you'll feed the
insects a special supplement so they have extra nutrients),
waxworms or red wigglers.
Your semi-aquatic pet needs a home with land and water areas. You
can create this environment by:
- Furnishing the terrarium with a water
- A dish large enough for full-body soaking
- Creating a divided terrarium with a water side and a land side.
Be sure to create a gradual slope that allows your pet to get in
and out of the water easily.
- Use a small filter to help keep the
water clean, and a submersible heater (if needed) to keep the water
at the right temperature.
Feeding amount & frequency
Feed juveniles daily; adults 3-4 times a week. Offer an amount that
can be consumed during the nighttime feeding.
Line the home with 2"-3" (5-8cm) of aquarium gravel. Slope up to
create a dry area above water level. Remove waste weekly and clean
gravel at least once a month.
