    Re: Terrarium temp

    Re: Liquid vitamins - how long to soak?

    In the past when I've done this I put my Woodhouse's in a dish overnight with the soak. I put him in when I went to bed and he was still there when I woke up. Total times vary between 6 to 12 hours.

    All right so how do I get her mouth open? She is doing a little better, even crawled out of the water dish. I got something like reptoboost but I cant get her to open her mouth. Suggestions please.

    Re: Signs of constipation or impaction

    I do have a feeding dish. I think sometimes my toads mistake reptobark as a bug.

    Re: Signs of constipation or impaction

    She's fine. She dug herself in a hole and wouldn't eat the first day. But she had a couple supertones last night.

    I broke it apart. It was filled with reptobark. She sometimes wats that when she misses a cricket.

    Re: Spine protruding in the back

    It's resolved but I think it happened because she is trying to push out stool. I think she may be constipated or impacted.

    Re: toad not eating.

    One of my toads is like this and the other is not. Try superworms, they move and crawl a lot which might help stimulate your toad to eat. My "hibernating" toad has gone over a month without eating. I...
