because these are very hardy pets. And once domesticated if released they can no longer fend on their own. Mine is a cutie. she knows when it is breakfast time and greets me every morning waiting for her cricket!

:I know, those toads can pull at your heart. I took one in last fall when a friend's daughter no longer wanted him. He was thin and kinda frail from lack of vitamin-powdered food. I feed him it now, though he still looks a bit flimsy, and he has some trouble getting food so I feed him crickets by hand. But he is overall a healthy little guy, and i could never let him go.
