There were hundreds of them on a busy trail that I often hike. I decided to save a couple of them from all the people stepping on them. They ate fruit flies for a few months, and now they have moved up to small crickets.

Here's what they looked like when I found them:

Awwww! I used to keep American Toads....my cousin's backyard has the perfect habitat for them....babies would pop up everywhere you stepped. In the very back there was a clay soil, hilly area with old log remains (my uncle is a carpenter/wood turner) and if you lift a log, you'll surely find a toad.
I caught one that was around 1 1/2 inches long, and I named her Annabelle. I loved her so much....haha. I made little agility courses for her on my bedroom floor, carried her around the house, and made a special little home for her in a nice big kritter keeper. But after a week of having her I couldn't find bugs small enough outside or at pet stores (she wouldn't eat fruit flies either) so I let her go in my compost pile where there are tons of flies xD
I haven't seen her since....I mean, carrying her around the whole time wasn't too good for her, but she never peed on me....
After that I stuck with frogs that I found in the window wells around my house. Every day I would leave them in the compost pile for a few minutes so they could catch flies, and they really did. I actually turned one of the more moist window wells into a habitat. At one point I had 7 frogs :)
Good luck to you and all of your babies :)

7 bettas, 2 goldfish, 50+ (accidental) snails, 2 parakeets, 1 dog, 2 cats


Rest in peace Butch, greatest dog ever, Omelette the Veiltail, and Chipita the Veiltail

An adult toad in the wild probably would. Mine are so used to me taking them out to feed every night since they were 1/2 inch long little buggers that they don't pee on me when I pick them up.

Makes sense. I used to have wild frogs as pets, 4 of em. Some lady told my dad they would die if I didn't release them to hibernate so he forced me to release them. :(
