Rococo Toad Gallery

This picture is a winner for sure. I mean, how often do you catch a shot of the prey and the victim relaxing together inbetween death hunts?

We were told he would eat a mouse this size, so we got him one. I was skeptical and concerned that the mouse would bite him first. He moves quick when a cricket walks by, but I didn't think he'd be fast enough for a young mouse. It took him all night, but he finally caught it. Since then, we only feed squirming litttle pinkies and even then, not that often since mice are high in fat and captive animals don't need that much in their diets. Besides, I often wonder, how often in nature does a Rococo toad happen upon a nest of baby mice?

We caught the two of them taking this "time out"! What a great shot!
