    Default Mysterious death of toad- WARNING Graphic pictures

    I came home from work yesterday evening and found Rosie not acting right. She couldn't move much and breathing very slow, didn't see much of a heart beat either. I put her in a pedi bath which didn't seem to help so I isolated her for the evening and this morning she was dead. 24 hours prior she was her normal acting self. I opened her up this morning and found this granulated stuff inside her. Any ideas? She was 1 year old.

    Someone suggested it might be eggs that caused a blockage, is this possible? I've sent this to her vet in hopes to get an answer. If this is the case I will stick with males only. This I do not want to go through again.

    It turns out 10% of amphibians die from being egg bound and there isn't much you can do about it unless you catch it early which is hard to do. Even in her death she is still teaching me things.

    I'm real sorry no one replied to this thread three years ago, it would have been good to get some more insight Do you know any more about egg bound frogs and what can be done about it if it IS caught early enough...? What did your vet say?

    There isn't anything that can be done. I't just a freak of nature thing.
