Toadie - Out odd little pet

My ex-husband was a herpetologist and this meant we frequently had a whole household of sick or unwanted amphibians. The one that stands out the most to me is Toadie, the Australian Cane Toad.

Toadie came to us as quite a small toad (Although large by normal standards) and my ex loved him. I think to the novice owner it may well be quite difficult to set up the correct environment for such a toad but for Steve with his knowledge and access to quipment it was quite simple.
Toadie didn't do too much apart from eat and poo. I remember Steve spending lots of time feeding him mice and also cleaning out the tank.
We had Toadie for around 4/5 months when on Christmas Eve we woke up to a dead toad. We don't know why he died but he was gone.
I would recommend a Cane Toad to an older amphibian enthusiast, not suitable for kids or teens. Quite expensive to keep and very time consuming.
