    Default Rhaebo guttatus leaking from gland

    Hello (I posted this in toads, but I wanted to try here as well),

    My smooth-sided toad passed this morning. I set up a vet appointment for today, but it was too late. I got her two weeks ago and she was doing fine, adjusted very well! a few days after, she started getting a bit lethargic, but I was told it was normal. By week two, she was acting weird, trying to get out of the enclosure. I had to set up some moss around the edges so she wouldn't hurt herself. She also stopped eating. The next day, she had some dried toxin on her parotoid gland. I wiped it away, and called the vet. She didn't move from the same spot for hours (horizontal), but she was still alive and seemed okay. Her eyes were clear, skin looked good. Next morning, her gland was covered in the leaked toxin, and she was dead. I was thinking of getting a necropsy done, but it was too expensive. The vet had no idea what it could have been though, so I turned to you guys.

    I meant to take pictures, but I was too upset (I really loved her). She's buried now, so sorry for the lack of pictures. Her terrarium is a 36x18x18. Water de-chlorinated and changed daily (or more when needed). Temperature and humidity good (75 degrees F, 60-75% humidity). I used reptisoil and loose coconut fiber substrate. There's also some exoterra forest moss. There's a fake plant, and a one live gold ribbon plant. She has a good sized cave to hide in. Any insight would be appreciated!
