Another One

Well here we go again i caught another American Toad yesterday after releasing the one i had before on the 21st if he continues to eat i am seriously thinking about keeping him (i think its a him) so i named him Icabod.

I am going to get him his own decent tank this week some time at the same time gonna get a new filter for the OFBT tank but thats a whole nother story in its own right.

Just a rat" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day. I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a rat", but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a man", because I am an animal lover So the next time you hear the phrase "just a rat", just smile -- because they "just don't understand."

Sounds like a plan. Are you sure they are not an endangered species? You may also want to check what regulations your area has concerning native species.

Of course you know that we all want to see pictures.

found out

well i have found out that it is legal to keep native species as long as not endangerd and the american toad is certainly not endangered.

The only exempt wild animals which may be taken from the wild in Massachusetts are certain reptiles and amphibians (321 CMR 3.05). Such animals may be kept as personal pets, but may not be sold, bartered, or exchanged. The possession limit is 2 on each of these reptiles and amphibians. Allowable species include the American Bullfrog, American Toad, DeKay's Brownsnake, Eastern Gartersnake, Eastern Musk Turtle, Eastern Newt, Eastern Racer, Eastern Red-backed Salamander, Eastern Ribbonsnake, Fowler's Toad, Gray Treefrog, Green Frog, Milksnake, Mudpuppy, Northern Dusky Salamander, Northern Two-lined Salamander, Northern Watersnake, Painted Turtle, Pickerel Frog, Red-bellied Snake, Smooth Greensnake, Snapping Turtle, Spring Peeper, and Wood Frog.
