Feeding the local wildlife... (not GSD related)

Ever since we moved into our apartment there has been a big toad that hangs out on or below our steps, every night he shows up and sometimes stays all day. We have kinda gotten attatched to this little guy and he looked hungry tonight so we took some of the geckos meal worms and gave him a snack


Dinner time, starring Froggers AKA Mr. Toad!

*Cute*

Have the same thing around here & Mr. Shadow knows Mr. Toad sits outside the door at night so, he is always trying to find/spot him before going to potty !

My 2 geckos said, you could have shared with them instead of that darn toad.............. LOL They don't get mealies anymore since way back I lost a AFT to feeding way to many mealies. She got impacted or something b/c her belly swelled up & no poo, she was kept on paper towels. Just crickets now.

What kind of gecko do you have? We have two leopard geckos (among other reptile beasties) right now, which are awesome. =)

O I love african fat tails! Our friend has two of them and they have such expressive faces! What geckos do you have? I would love to see pics! Haha our geckos are such fatties that they can afford to share w/froggers and your babies. Although we just lost our one of our geckos last night, no clue what the cause was, she stopped eating for a few weeks, we got her the reptiaid and she was doing good... who knows, they are so hard to read some times! It might have been mealworms if that was your problem, maybe we will take the others off of them for a while to be safe! Good thing they love supers and crickets too (MOOO lol)

O and Baya always tries to "play" with him when she goes out too lol they are lucky frogs that we are so diligent!

Re: Feeding the local wildlife... (not GSD related)

They are GORGEOUS! I don't have pictures, unfortunately, but they're both leucistics. The female looks a lot like pretty Rhea. They're such awesome pets.

I'm a huge reptile lover too - we also have two beardies, a Russian tortoise, and a very old fire belly toad (he likes to be included in the group).

for no pics but it sounds like you have quite the crew! WHen I get out of school and have more room (not have to pack everyone up all the time lol) I was thinking about getting a beardi, Ive seen a few of them and they look so sweet but slightly intimidating, do you have a favorite type? I need to google Russian tortoise and see what they look like!

I really like the luesistics, I love how many patterns leos come in!

Re: Feeding the local wildlife... (not GSD related)

Beardies are fun, but they get fairly large, and are a bit more expensive to keep. We have them both in Vision cages, which are amazing cages, but expensive. They can easily eat 50 crickets in a sitting, so that adds up too. =) The German Giants are my favorite type of beardie, because they get extra big. =)

The Russian tortoise is a great starter tortoise. They stay small, and are relatively hardy. Ours is very outgoing and adventurous. =)

If I had more space, I would love to get a Sulcata tortoise. We've talked about getting one, and then moving him out into the backyard when he got bigger, but it would make me nervous that I had an animal I couldn't easily move if there was an emergency.
