Mr. Toad was given to me by a friend when they had to move cross country. He started off in a 2 gallon plastic terrarium with very little room.
Over the course of a year he was upgraded to a 7 gallon amphibian terrarium, and then to a 15 gallon custom built terrarium, complete with live plants, mosses, and a gallon sized "pond" on one end. He was primarily fed live crickets, which are easy to get a hold of, and he was a sight to see.
Mr. Toad was very easy going, and tolerated being handled, but it's important to remember that these are poisonous, and you should use the utmost care when handling these creatures. You shouldn't have any open cuts, and be sure to thoroughly wash your hands after touching a Fire Belly Toad, or you'll be quite sorry. You also should remember, particularly if you have other pets, that you need to have a well secured lid, and that Fire Belly Toads can only live with other Fire Belly Toads, or the other animals sharing the terrarium may meet an untimely demise.
Really a fun and showy pet to have.
When our family friends moved back into town He was given back to them (with his better suited enclosure) as a house-warming gift. Their kids were elated to get him back.
