Toad tub

Toad tub with lid on.

Toads inside log hide. Ten toads live in this tub. I guess captive life agrees with them, as they are all many times bigger now than they were early this spring when I gathered them.
The lid will eventually go on the box I plan to build for them, with 1 x 12 inch lumber and lined with heavy duty plastic to protect the wooden bottom.

They like to burrow in the evening so I want to give them a nice deep box of at least 6 inches soil; now they have about three inches, which will do for the summer.
I am using just plain top soil with no fertilizers or other additives for them. As they poop up the soil it is recycled into the garden. The water bowl has to be changed at least once a day as they like to soak in it and poop in it. The egg crate piece is loaded with crickets, and cricket food and water crystals for the crickets. This is sort of a toad buffet, which the toads visit throughout the day.
