I obtained various toads as pets simply because there was plenty of them to be found in my mother's flower garden as well as any other damper areas.
From time to time I would collect one and keep it in a makeshift aquarium where I would place dirt along with other various vegetation.
Occasionally I would attempt to get flies and other insects for them, but they were able to fend for themselves quite easily without my help. I would only keep them for a few days at a time before letting them go, back into the garden.
It was difficult to ever get overly attached to any of them as their demeanor isn't the type to create a bond.
In fact, they usually had quite a lazy attitude towards me and didn't ever really try to avoid my capture. The only defense they really put up was to urinate on me if I held them, but that was only occasionally.
