Acquired: Pet store

For a few years I was really into amphibians. It was at this time that I got Prince my huge Cane Toad. The males can reproduce as a female. It’s crazy. They eat mainly bugs and insects. They are poisonous. Sometimes animals eat them thinking they look delicious, I know right, and they can actually die because they’re venom. They do make interesting pets. The care for them isn’t too bad. They like it wet and warm like most water dwelling amphibians. They can get huge. Prince was 4lbs. He had a very stubborn personality which is why thought he was so fun.
To maintain his living quarters you don’t need too much. You can use a series of bowls and tubs to house him with some marsh and moisture and keep him indoors. They can be active but for the most part they just hang back and chill out in the water. These are good for kids but you want to teach them about proper care because the can secrete poison.
We ended up give Prince away to a family that had young kids. They loved the experience.
