Presumably, you're talking about Phrynomantis bifasciatus or P.microps. If that's so, I would say that you've been provided with information which is questionable at best. You'll get more complete information by way of the scientific name and your favorite search engine. That will also be quicker than me going to the bookshelves, and supplementing from memory.

I have kept both P.bifasciatus and P.microps. They like it warmer than most caudates, should be kept reasonably moist, are generally shy, and tend to hide in cracks and crevices. They are also quite toxic, and shouldn't be in close company of other amphibians - same cage may be okay, so long as everybody can avoid prolonged close contact.
