angelgirl2020July 27, 2008

I have 3 Fire bellied toads who were happy and eating, basically doing everything a happy toad does. but recently one has stopped eating its been 5 or more days now.We took him out and put him in a smaller tank but he still won't eat, i've tried crickets and meal woms(molted) he just steps on them. when his water get a little cold he starts freaking out and we have to heat the water constantly.I don't know what else to do.Please HELp!!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Fire bellies generally like it a little cool (mid 70's at most), but should be offered a warmer spot in your terrarium. I've given my pair (which I've had for about 2 years) a higher level closer to the light which gets up to about 85 degrees. About 20 percent of the time they're up there, until they see my then they dive into the pool :)
