These small black and yellow toads are a small species growing to an adult size of 25mm to 35mm, females being larger. On their underside they have flashes of red on their feed and belly. They are a hardy species of toad to keep in captivity.
These fabulous little toads are a recent and very welcome addition to the amphibians commonly kept in captivity. A small number of wild collected animals were shipped into Holland around 2012/13. From these imports there are now many self-sustaining groups in the hands of breeders. They are day active and have huge appetites. So, feed plenty and often. Gut loaded micro crickets can be the basis of a perfect diet.
