Hey, I'm T. Tongue-twister of a name, I know. I'm a rad 7 year old Fire-Bellied Toad looking for an amphibian-savvy home. Did you know my skin secretes a toxin that is unappetizing to predators? That's what my bright orange belly is all about. Don't worry, though-I am not toxic to people, and to be honest, I'm happiest not being handled anyway. The oils and residues on human hands can be irritating to my sensitive skin. It's a good thing I'm diurnal (active during the day) because I am really fun to watch hopping all over my enclosure, chasing after bugs and hiding under leaves! Just because I don't like to be handled doesn't mean I'm not a really fun pet. My previous owner took really good care of me, so I'm already 7 years old, but with continued excellent care, I can live to over 10 years old-some Fire-Bellies have been recorded as living up to 20 years!
So come in and claim me if I can fill the perfectly toad-sized hole in your heart and home. Just ask for T, ID# A841416. #peninsulahumanesociety #phsspca #adopt #adoptdontshop #toad
