Rio Pescado Stubfoot Toad
The search for this "lost frog" ended after 15 years of searching when it was rediscovered by researchers Eduardo Toral-Contreras and Elicio Tapia in September of 2010. It was thought that this species, along with many other of its relatives, fell subject to the fatal chytridiomycosis responsible for killing off so many other species of amphibians world-wide. Although referred to as one of the "lost frog" species, this is actually a toad - the Rio Pescado Stubfoot Toad to be exact. Now that this species has been rediscovered, captive breeding projects have began in an effort to learn more about this species's habits and habitats.
Our original animals were imported from a conservation-based breeding center in Ecuador where this species is native to.
The pictures in this gallery are of our adult toads. The males are much smaller than the females.
For breeding to occur, we set our pair up in an enclosure with large-leaf plants, plenty of rocks, crevices, and very clean, moving water.
