Hibernation and Captivity
I "adopted" a toad that had lived in his basement for several
I know that toads have a hibernation season, but is it the same for toads
Should I continue to feed him during this time? He has adjusted well to
his 50 gallon aquarium, should I try to introduce another toad for company?
Reptiles and amphibians kept in warm places in captivity typically do not
hibernate, but they do become sluggish and eat considerably less. Continue
to offer food but don't be too alarmed if it doesn't eat very much.
"Company" is not an issue for these kinds of animals, another one will be
fine in that size aquarium, but don't worry about the one being by itself.
