The first step in feeding the toads is to collect the designated bug for the day, dust them with supplements like calcium and vitamins, and put them into the freezer to slow them down before feeding.
We then go tank by tank, making sure that each toad gets the correct amount of food, which was two roaches each on this day.
Unfortunately, it turns out that Wyoming Toads have lousy eyesight. They react only to movement, so if the bug isn't moving they don't see it. We spend a lot of time pushing and poking the food toward the toads in the hope that they will grab it.
