Smooth sided toads are large and need at least a 36x18x18 front opening tank or a 40 breeder as adults for multiple animals but a single toad can be kept in a 24x18x18 or a 20 long traditional aquarium. They don’t need a complicated tank but appreciate a large corner bowl to soak in as well as large cork tubes to hide in. They can be kept either on coco fiber or biobedding. A basking spot in the 80s is also advisable.
Ideal temperatures for this species is 75°-85° F. It may be necessary to add a lot watt basking light to achieve these temperatures. Monitor temperatures using a therometer.
Terrarium humidity should be kept in the 50%-70% range. Because the Smooth Sided Toad requires good air circulation, it’s important to provide ventilation in the vivarium. Humidity can be monitored with a quality hygrometer.
The size range for Smooth Sided toads is approximately 6-7” for males and 7-9” for females. There is evidence that females can reach up to 10″ but this is very uncommon.
