    You should try toads. Cane toads are very intelligent (one of the smartest amphibians!) But they are poisonous but only if you squeeze them or touch the bulges behind their head. If you don't want cane toads (I would really want any kind of toad if I could get some because they're so cute) you can try another species. American toads, along with every species of toad are poisonous but not nearly as toxic as cane toads. Toads are usually easier to take care of than frogs because they need less humidity and can be handled slightly more often than frogs. Toads need a big enough habitat and some soil to bury in along with a water dish and daily food. They aren't picky eaters and can get chubby fast. They will strongly benefit from letting them swim in a kiddy swimming pool in the summer and frequent hops in the grass as long as there's no pesticides in it. Just make sure to do your research first. Happy to help, LapisOre :)
