I caught a toad today and i want to keep it as a pet but don't know how to care for it. I don't not know what kind of toad it is. It's brown with black areas on it.

any pictures? pics and location could help to ID the toad. have you checked for Bufo species that have a range in your area?

Feed it crickets and other insects and give it clean dechlorinated water every day or two.

how many crickets should i fed it.
If it is small and still growing then feed it as many as 5 to 10 small crickets everyday, and be sure to dust the crickets with calcium and vitamin d3 which is available at the petstore where you buy crickets. If it is an old mature toad then feeding it 5 to 10 large crickets every week is fine.
