Default Bloated Fire Bellied Toad

Hi There,
I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice. I've had 4 fire bellied toads for over 2 years now and they have all been fine. However a week and half ago I noticed one of my toads had bloated up, the next morning he had bloated even more and died, he had what I can imagine was his guts in his mouth. Then about 5 days ago I noticed another one of my toads had what looked like a lump under his lower jaw, after what had happened to my other toad I have isolated this one in a separate container, each day he is also bloating up more and more and feel the rest of my toads are going the same way. Can anyone relate to this or help??

Hi,
Im sorry i cant give you any precise help...bloat is a complex thing with many possible causes.
You might want to try this other forum:
Frog Forum
Its a sister site of this one, but dedicated to anurans, so youd probably get better help there.

Thanks, poor toad has started to bleed from a spot from his back. I'll try the frog forum for advise.
