    Default New to toads question

    I currently have my two American toads in a large sweater box with lots of substrate, fake plants, a hide out, and a soaking dish. In addition to that I mist about two times a day.
    I have read care sheets, even FFs, but I want to make sure I'm doing everything right for my babies

    are they toadlets or full grown? Toadlets like the misting, but in my experience, I always found that misting the adults always just caused more problems than good, like- Mold, high humidity, dirtying the tank quicker, making the habitat the perfect place for obnoxious mites.

    Oh yes, the obnoxious mites. I would say they are on the more adult end of juveniles.
    I just found out one is a Fowler's/American toad hybrid, but I am pretty sure the husbandry is the same.
    I am not misting to excess, just a little squirt or two to make the humidity a bit higher. Should I cut it from the routine and just keep a sad soaking dish?

    The toads like humidity when they are small toadlets, it tends to change when they get older, really all you need is a water dish but the occasional misting does not hurt every few days (or once a week, as is my schedule). It's pretty cool that you got a hybrid, yes the husbandry is pretty much identical.

    From what I understand, it's nearly impossible to tell with an individual (vs community) except potentially by their call. I haven't been in the toad-researching business for a few years though, so something may have updated since then.
