Hi everybody,

I have decided to keep some toads, and I was wondering what the other frog enthusiasts feed their toads.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, Thank You. Both Crickets and mealworms are easy to find and not too expensive. Any other suggestions would be appreciated though.

i assume they are american toads right? you also could feed slugs and minnows.

if its really small try gnats you can catch them by sweeping a net in grass

I'm actually from South Africa, so they're South African toads but they share basically the same habits. They are quite large, so gnats are a bit small.
I might give slugs a try.

I did manage to get two of them to eat some roaches. I can't buy mealworms till I get to town, in a few days time. Roaches, on the other hand, are freely available around my house. I will try to feed the other two later.

Thank You!

Just an update, I managed to get all of the toads to eat. And, they are a species of Amietophrynus. Probably Amietophrynus gutturalis (Power, 1927), or Amietophrynus rangeri (Hewitt, 1935).

Thank You Amphibians. I could try and get hold of some earthworms, we just had a termite swarm, and they seem to be going down quite well.
