Would a Yearling Corn Eat a Toad if They Were Put in Confines Together?

    I have caught two smallish toads and was wondering if my corn would eat them. I'd like to keep the toads, I just don't have a place for them. My snake ate yesterday.

    Regardless of if they would eat each other or not, don't put them together. You risk the toads giving your corn snake health problems if you do.

    Since most types of toads secrete toxins I would not ever co-hap them with another animal. Corns are eating machines and chances are he will try to eat them. They also can stress him out and cause him to regurgitate his last meal. Then there is always the risk of parasites from wild animals.

    Put the toads in an empty ice cream bucket or better yet back into the wild where they belong.

    The toads would be happier back where you found them. It's not worth the risk of getting your corn snake sick trying to keep them together at any rate.
    Think alien abduction for toadies. When you put them back, they can tell great stories to their friends. :-&
