::I went ahead and bought the poor thing, (all of us in line were on verge of tears!),
:It is often argued that if pet stores keep their animals in deplorable conditions, and people still buy them, they won't ever change their ways (and will probably get another shipment of the same animals, since they're selling).
:Have you done a search for "toad care sheet" yet? The GENERAL requirements for Bufo species should be similar (I'm not a "toad person" myself).
Thanks Chris, I'll look into the fact sheets. I'm not a toad fan either, not what I set out to get. I agree with the issue of not buying things like this because it then creates more of a demand apparently, but if an animal is suffering, and this one was, I can't stand by or walk away without trying to do something. It's a tough issue! thx, Amy.
