Cane toads or as I like to call them, Elder Frogs, are interesting characters to have in your home.
First off, they are rather sedentary as are many other toads, but they have this "aristocratic" charm to them. I have never been able to figure out what the initial appeal was other than the fact that they looked like something you would read about in a fantasy novel. The classic wise old toad that dispenses knowledge to a weary traveler.
These toads however don't produce knowledge, and instead produce a minor toxin that causes extremely severe stomach pains for 24 hours up to a week in some cases. Then again, what are you doing licking your toad? Would you like it if your toad just decided to start licking you in an attempt to get high? No the answer is no, and now that we have that out of the way, don't do it. Then you'll forever be known as the guy who licks reptiles in their parents basement. We already have enough weird individuals doing that thank you very much.
So what does this all equate too? I'd suggest getting one. They are only 40 dollars, they are really low maintenance, and they only need about 20-30 gallons of space, and probably more likely 20. They don't move too much, so keep that in mind too if you want something active. But if you're going by my opinion, then I'd say buy one.
