    Default What does it mean when an American toad has a very light color?

    My one toad was moved into her newly updated enclosure and she looks very light brown. Is she just stressed from the commotion or is something wrong?

    Is the enclosure warmer or more well lit than the old one?

    It is the same, she was in a temporary terrarium until I finished the enclosure she has been in for months. She went from a 75 gallon to 18x18x24 terrarium back to a 75 gallon in 3 days

    Was the soil a different color? When I first moved my Leopard geckos to a different substrate, they became darker to better camouflage themselves. That could be what's happening to your toad as well, as I think my Fowler's toadlets when they were still alive turned lighter when I first caught them, and turned darker when I moved them to a different set-up

    The soil was a little bit lighter so I think that this must have been the reason. She was really stressed earlier today when I was taking plants out of the terrarium and in the 75 Gallon. She is fine now, she is exploring so I think that it's going to be alright.
