cannibal toads?
 
ok I had 4 firebellied toads in a lightly planted 20 long tank. It has a heater set to 78 degrees and a DJ-50 filter. twice now, the most recent being yesterday, one toad is just missing. I searched the WHOLE room, nothing. I searched the tank and only found some clumpy weird stuff, but i figured it was WAY to fast to be decomp. Is it possible the other 2 toads have... eaten him? i know they tend to do that, but man thats fast.

I'm no toad expert so I can't answer your question, but I can say with certaintly that this thread title would make an *awesome* band name. Especially with the question mark.

heh toads are cannibalistic mainly for this purpose:
1)hunger(make sure to feed him and watch him eat and make sure all of em eat)
2)Territory issues?how many males do you have? 4males? with no female because that is completely stupid to do....you need to make sure each male has a female this applies to most animals
3)Ehh just didnt like him
4)Prob wanted to try a new food? try providing diff foods maybe roaches,crickets,meal worms(as a treat),wax worms(as treats), super worm and etc... i sometimes feed my american toads random insects like moths,beetles,flies,spiders and anything i see and want to torment -cough- err i mean feed xD

it's very possible they did =(
especially if he was even a little bit smaller.


@iamntbatman: ahaha like cannibal corpse only better XD
have you ever seen the movie cannibal holocaust? when i saw this title i thought of that movie with toads instead of people.

And as for the cannibal toads, I also do not know. But if its possible to toads to do so, why doubt it?
