Looking for a unique and fascinating amphibian to add to your collection? Look no further than the South American Leaf Toad (Bufo typhonius)! With its distinctively shaped body and striking coloration, this toad is unlike any other. They are found throughout South America and are known for their ability to change their skin color to blend in with their environment. Their large, expressive eyes and unique vocalizations make them an entertaining and captivating addition to any home. They are visually stunning and have a gentle disposition, making them an ideal pet for both beginner and experienced amphibian keepers.
South American Leaf Toads (Bufo typhonius) are relatively easy to care for in captivity. They require a spacious enclosure with a moist substrate that is not waterlogged. The temperature should be maintained between 75-85°F (24-29°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. UVB lighting is not essential for their health, but they will benefit from exposure to natural sunlight or a low-level UVB bulb. Various insects, such as crickets, mealworms, and roaches, should be offered every other day.
Leaf toads are relatively docile but shy, so they prefer hiding places in their enclosure. Handle them gently and sparingly, as they can be delicate and prone to skin irritation. With proper care and attention, your South American Leaf Toad will thrive in your home and provide you with years of enjoyment.
