Try feeding it baby crickets instead, maybe the earth worm is too big? Whats your set up like and have you been holding him alot? Maybe hes stressed,

The setup is hard to imagine from your description.. there should be non=chemical soil in the bottom of the tank and some hides, how big is the tank? like in gallons, has he eaten since you got him? could you post some pictures of him? He probably isnt going to eat if you dangle it in front of him. You have to let him find the worm on his own and eat it, also is the worm too big for him? I have a baby toad and he refuses to eat the worms cause there so big so we bought him baby crickets, maybe you should move him onto eating crickets?

Thats not good.. he needs soil or coconut husks in there so that he can bury himself.. there should be a water bowl a few plants [fake or real] and hideing places, no wonder hes not eating..

Yeah, I wouldn’t eat either if I had to live in my bathroom with only a toilet to sit on. Just because it’s a baby toad doesn’t mean it deserves a tiny area to live in especially after living in the wide open space.

Yikes! His setup sound terrible. Not for a american toad. They are burrowers, not water frogs. They need to have soil of bed-a-beast. Change his setup A.S.A.P.
