Melanophryniscus klappenbachi or commonly known as bumble bee toads or walking toads are such an awesome toad that we had to include them. Full Grown toads reach about 2″ with a deep matte black skin speckled lightly with yellow and the bottoms of their feet turn a deep orange. Females tend to be a little bigger and fatter in the belly area especially during breeding season with sexual maturity around 18-24 months.
Baby toads will feed on springtails then flies and even pinhead crickets when full grown. A supplementation regimen with calcium and multi-vitamins is a must.
Habitat setup requires open ventilation with a humidity level between 40-60%. A low vivarium setup is generally preferred as they will explore but usually come crashing down if its too high. Rocks and low cave areas are much appreciated along with leaf litter and other hides. Check out our Walking Toads kits for everything you need to get started.
Toads will spend most of the day foraging for food, very bold and not shy at all they do well in small or large groups given enough space. Breeding occurs only during the rainy season and requires a cool-off period.
