I got this baby L caerulea or White's Tree Frog a week ago. I have a
>10 gallon tall tank (12lx12wx18h)
>live big leaf plant
>6x3" water pond
>65-80 temp changes
>60-80 humidity changes with misting
>feeding small crickets every other night
What do you do about feeding, vitamins, light (I read both need and don't need uvb light)?
Feeding shouldn't be a problem, they attempt to eat everything. I can't even open the tank without getting jumped. Just get a varied diet of crickets, locusts, roaches, flies, mealworms, etc. The standard vitamin powders work fine.
I've had the oldest one now for over 10 years and I don't keep them with UV. Considering they're nocturnal I doubt they need it.
$75 for terrarium
$20 for heater
$20 for frog
$10 for water dish
$ 5 for plants
Then $1 to $4 a week for insects
And $7 a year for vitamins.
Frogs can range from $5 to $50 depending on species. If they need uvb lights add another $30 then $20 a year on light bulbs.
I can't be the only one here with ribbits! Let's see some pics!
He looks so happy!
My frog is a little bumpier.
That's a winner!
I found my books! I went crazy a few years back at a half-price book sale. Turns out I did have one on White's...
Do toads count? This is my lil buddy Nubbins. I found him at work over the summer and saw he just had a nub where his foot should be so I took him home and now he's my little friend. Definitely one of my favorite pets, toads are extremely underrated.
Got a pac-man frog about a week ago. He sure is a lazy frog hasn't moved for a couple days
He mainly eats crickets but I started feeding mealworms also a few months ago and I found that he REALLY likes them. So mainly those two things, dusted with vitamins and calcium supplement every other feeding. He's a real sweet dude, adapted very well to captivity with no signs of parasites or anything.
I'm thinking he lost his legs because of my one coworker. I work at a tree/bush nursery, so we have to string up the plants before we dig them out. Sometimes there are toads underneath. When I find them, I just kinda put them somewhere else safe. My coworker will literally fucking chuck these poor critters in the air as hard as he can. Either he was got a foot yanked off when that happened or he was under a board or something and may have gotten his foot pinched off when somebody picked it up. He was real skinny when I found him, now he's a fat little bastard.
I've had my Pacman for a few months now and I think I've only seen him move own his own accord from an established sitting place like twice. Other than that, he really doesn't move until I take him out to feed him. Honestly, if they're moving around a lot, that probably means that something's wrong.
Pic related is my dude Fatty
Yeah it is, LOL. It's a pretty good book with a lot of detail.
Here's a nude bath pic!
A day later... You can tell by his gut he's digested most of the 4 crickets he ate.
Hey can u guys help me out? I just got a African bull frog (pixie frog) and he is extremely scared of me, I want to feed him in a separate feeding tank but when i did he just freaked out and tried jumping out so I just feed him in his tank now, it's been 4 days I guess he's still nervous around me but when do you guys think he'll get used to me and start eating in a feeding tank? Pic kinda related but just a baby lol
2 weeks later. Can you tell if he's growing? Just ate 3 - 1/2" crickets. Feeding every other day.
