Yellow and Black Walking Toads (Melanophryniscus stelzneri)

Below are two articles about Melanophrynuscus stelzneri. I did not write either of them and I do not have any personal experience caring for or breeding these toads. I chose to place them on this website because there seems to be a lack on information about this particular species care online, and at the time they were written, M. stelzneri was being imported in large numbers.

A very special thanks to both authors for sharing this information with other hobbyists!
