Thank you so much for that comprehensive response! Much of what you have described as good husbandry is in our toad care guide on this site, but your first tip is unique. Preventing them from burrowing for a time to minimize the parasite load and providing a circuit breaker for reinfection is extremely interesting and it is a tip I will pass on to others members over time. And you are so right about amphibians being threatened by human activities, either directly or indirectly. Sounds like you learned some valuable lessons and that you are now a really well informed and responsible keeper. So thanks again!
