Home > Frogs > Care Sheets

 
Fire-Bellied Toads spend the majority of their time submersed in water. There are 8 different species, most with orange, red or yellow bellies.
 
Natural Location: Europe
Average Lifespan: Up to 5 Years
Estimated Size: 2" to 3"

Feeding & Water

Provide your Fire-Bellied Toads with a wide variety of insects. You can use gut-loaded crickets, mealworms, butterworms, and small silkworms. Feed them every other day. When feeding, place the food on the dry side of the tank, and remove all food debris from the tank after feeding. Always keep the water in the tank clean, using a water filter.

 

Temperature, Lighting & Humidity

Provide a 20 degree gradient ranging from 65 degrees F to 85 degrees F. Use an incandescent bulb for light. You can use flourescent lighting as well, but you still have to provide the heat source.

 

Housing

Fire-Bellied Toads do not need much space. A 10 Gallon aquarium tank is a good size. Provide several different areas, including; a dry land spot, a moist land spot (moist soil, peat moss, etc), and still water. Give your Fire-Bellied Toads lots of places to hide.
