Hi everyone,

I found a toad in my backyard with a strange leg. I'm not sure if the leg is broken or just malformed. The other leg is fine though, and is very well muscled, so I think it might have been that way for a while.

Is there anything that I can do for him? I will post photos if necessary.

unless you plan to keep him, I would let nature take its course. it may be broken, it may be deformity. if it is well muscled and not atrophied, it could be a deformity or a very early break and the muscle has not withered yet.

If you want to keep him, and set him up a natural tank habitat, you might be able to prolong his life. you would treat him like any 'pet' frog. feed him, monitor tank conditions, etc

Sorry, about my short answer. I didn't mean to sound rude, but, I ran out of internet data and had to answer quickly. Thank You for all your help and advice.
