Naturalistic Sonoran Desert Vivarium


Hi I'm Zach and I am new to the forum. Just wanted to share this project I have been working on. This tank is a 40 gal "breeder" size and houses one male Bufo alvarius.

Thank you! substrate is a mix of coco-fiber and sand. I live in Las Vegas, and temps are close enough to their native range so that I don't need to add any supplemental heat, just let him slow down in winter. Again, no additional humidity control aside from the water dish, so it's pretty dry.

pretty neat setup there. Does your toad ever venture far from his water dish, or is he in there most of the time?

Thanks! Yeah, he usually stays under the bark hide, but does spend a fair amount of time in the water dish.
