In less than one month this lady has
put on some weight. Is it possible that she
can eat to much and be unhealthy? She does not
eat every day, even if I try to get her to. But
every other day she rips through 10 or so crickets
like she is starving. As fast as I can dust 'em, break their
knees(so she has the advantage and they don't jump away)
and toss them in, she has them in her mouth.
She loves meal worms too :D

BBB is a sponsor and did a great job with our toad. My suggestion would be to contact them with your interest and wait for a reply just as we did. :)
Best of Luck to you.

Maybe sometime we will,
there are details here in the archives and on the net, the only thing that I have found to be challenging is to hit the plate. In the description it says to milk above the plate,
this is almost impossible cause the venom comes out like your popping a pimple. So holding the toad under clear glass and having the glands facing you. This allows the venom to "pop" up toward you, on the glass and if she/he decides to piss, well hopefully you have something under her/him to catch that.

To give you a visual of what I'm talking about,
Imagine a clear glass coffee table...
your head hovering over the table...
the toad in your hands below the table...
and when you squeeze the gland, it squirts
on the bottom of the table.
This is the concept...

and heres the milking process

Nice Toad!
Just some advice, MealWorm are a NO NO.

The meal worm will not die right away and have been known Quite frequently to eat from the inside out People's frogs toads and Lizards.

You can pinch off the head, but to do that all the time ... i don't know.

The best food is Giant Earthworms gut loaded on High protien Premium dog food.
Worms are at WalMart or you fishing store.
When Toad is big enough you can feed baby pinkie mice.
Make sure to vary the diet all the time so as to mimic nature.
From experience, feeding toad the same thing all the time slows venom production, and makes weak gland sauce.

Hope you enjoy your Ally!!!

Her diet varies as she does not eat the same thing all the time. Any thing we feed her is either gut loaded or dusted in vitamins like shake and bake. :lol:
Her appetite is great and she is very happy. She is growing like a weed.
I can't believe her growth from the time we got her till now.:amazed:

Thanks for the compliments,
Merm
