    Default Space Limitations

    I was thinking about fishbowls the other day and thought to myself, could a dwarf american toad live in one of those. Say I have a container, that the same exact size of my toad, and I put her in it, she recieves required care specifics, but not space. Not that I'm planning on doing this, but what would happen?

    Stunted growth.

    Not that i'm crucifying you but you should know well that no animal with a backbone deserves to live in a fishbowl

    It would be very unhealthy for the toad. I would assume you would clean it out everyday? If not eventually your toad would be sleeping in her own feces Stunted growth would also be a major factor.

    Agreed a minimum of a ten gallon aquarium with ecoearth and a few places to hide.
    Temps from 75 during the day and a night time temp drop of no lower than 65F.
    humidity no lower than 65% and no higher than 80%

    Just regular lights , no need for UV
    Just do a regular dusting schedule of crickets and dubia nymphs no bigger than the space in between her eyes.
    also night crawler pieces no longer than how wide her mouth is great.
    Good luck.

    Default Space Limitations

    I was just wondering how big of a part space plays. Once again, as stated above, I am not going to try this.

    Whenever someone starts a "what if" type negative scenario, it usually ends in a flame war and negative energy. There is nothing to learn about those and I'm locking it up .
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
