Smooth Sided Toad

Species Spotlight

 GROWN ADULT

Smooth sided toads, Rhaebo guttatus, are very large true toads native to the Amazon rainforest. Their common name comes from their lack of wart-like bumps, which are a common trait among toads. Their scientific name, guttatus, is Latin for 'spotted.' Until recently this species was named Bufo gutatta.

Smooth sided toads are members of the family of true toads, Bufonidae. Although the term 'true toad' is reserved for members of this family, the words 'frog' and 'toad' are sometimes used interchangeably in common names. For example, the true toad genus Atelopus is commonly known as the harlequin frogs. 

 GROWN ADULT

Adult smooth sided toads are quite large, and females generally outgrow males. An adult male may reach up to seven inches, but most will be closer to the six-inch mark. A large female will be larger and bulkier, measuring up to eight inches. Some particularly large individuals push ten inches! All of our smooth sided toadlets are well-started and measure about three quarters of an inch long at time of sale.

As with most toads, smooth sided toads have toxin glands behind their eyes called paratoid glands. If ingested, their toxin can cause hypertension and heart failure. Captive-bred toads are more hesitant to secrete toxin than their wild-caught counterparts, but caution should still be exercised to avoid ingesting the toxin, and to keep it away from mucous membranes and cuts. Keep toads away from other pets for the safety of the toad and the other pets alike.

Captive smooth sided toads are typically collected from the wild, and the majority in the hobby today are wild-caught adults. Josh's Frogs is proud to make a difference by breeding this awesome species and making happy, healthy, captive-bred toads available to more people! For more detailed habitat and care information, click the green button below.

"This is muddy, my smooth sided toad I bought from Josh’s frogs 2 months ago. This just shows how muddy grows ! 💚"

Love from Castomers

Great feedback from Elizabeth

"To Josh's Frogs Team,
As a first time White's Tree Frog owner, I would just like to thank you and your team for offering such an informational, complete, and thorough business. Every question I had in regards to purchasing, what should be purchased, quantities, quality, the frog's overall needs, and premium care were answered in the item's description. One item easily lead to another and grew into a smooth 1, 2, 3, 4 step of covering all of the animal's needs (including informational videos on substrate, lighting setup, and beyond). Your prices are comparable to massive stores such as Amazon and without hesitation, I will continue to return to Josh's Frogs for all of our White's Tree Frog needs. Thank you for providing such an exceptional business of such quality and superiority!
Best,
Elizabeth"
