    Default Enoch the Western Toad.

    Just wanted to show an update on Enoch, whom I've had since August 28th. The first pick is the first few days we had him or her; the second is what he or she looks like as of yesterday. Not much difference in overall size, but definately on the more round side!

    Thank you. Only pinhead crickets are food, but I am wondering if I should cut back to every other day or so. Trying to get only 4-5 pinheads in at a time is next to impossible-more escape-so he sometimes gets a lot more than I think is needed....

    No, you shouldn't cut back. Little toads like that need a LOT of food and supplementation to grow properly and they are designed to grow FAST. With sufficient food and optimum conditions he should be capable of growing nearly an inch per month although it isn't necessary to grow them quite that fast. If he isn't growing at least a half inch per month though you definitely need to feed him more.

    Wow-really? And how often should I dust the crickets? I usually do it twice a week: once with calcium and once with vitamins.

    When toadlets are growing fast I have found it necessary to dust their food daily with rapashy. Otherwise some have have tended to show signs of deficiencies after a month or so. Things like loss of stickiness in the tongue(not enough vitamin A) spasms(not enough calcium) etc.
