    Shipping pet frogs cross country

    Hello,

    It's been about forever since I last visited the forum. I moved to Hawaii for work about a year ago and had to give my frogs away as they are illegal to import to HI. I managed to find...
  2. Re: I need tips for setting up a half water half land setup!

    These set ups are great for gabf! It's the only way I'd want to keep them (except for as small babies). I have a 40 gallon breeder set up for my adult male. It's about 70% water and 30% land. I had a...
  3. Re: African Bullfrog "Pixie" enclosures. Ghost killers and water bowls!

    Mattfish, can you share your source of info for the natural history of the species? I would like to read more about their time spent away from water. Thanks.

    Re: Pixie Frog Injury or Fungus?

    In case a second opinion makes you feel any better- I 100% agree with Lija's post. Looks like an injury and I too see the healed nose rub. Either there is something your frog is scraping its nose on...

    Hi folks,

    Re: Sad sad day :(

    So sorry about your frog :(
    It sounds like she was well cared for and you were very observant and hands on.
    I don't see anything obvious, but there is the remote possibility that there was...

    Re: Getting a Budgetts Frog!

    Your care plans sound good to me. I don't know about the snails, but it sounds a little risky to me. What kind of snails? I'm hoping to get my first budgett's frog in the next few months. Maybe we...

    Re: Swollen back leg!!

    Sorry about your vet appointment. How frustrating!
    I don't see any reason to quarantine the frog (it's not like she has tankmates to begin with). I recommend that you keep her in her regular...

    Re: Swollen back leg!!

    I don't want to speculate, especially since that incident was an isolated accident. But it's possible that it may have something to do with her current symptoms.
    It's worth mentioning to the vet,...

  11. Re: Thinking of combining fish and ACF tanks

    Aggressive fish and frogs do not mix. The frogs will try to eat any fish (even if they seem to big) and the fish will bully or scare the frogs. I'd recommend keeping the frog separate and (not that...

    Re: Flipper has not eaten for 2 months now

    I second Tony's suggestion of trying a live worm. You can pick up some nightcrawlers from Walmart (in the fishing section). Cut the worm into 3" pieces and try to hand feed. Drives every frog crazy....

    Re: African Dwarf Frogs female or male?

    Woah. I don't keep ADFs and I'm not terribly familiar with sexing them. But Flipper looks very thin. Emaciated even. What and how often are you feeding him/her? How old is it?
    He looks skeletal with...

    Re: Needing advice

    To answer your question: Yeah, I think your frog looks healthy. Looks can be deceiving, but a few days off food isn't cause for concern (yet). There is a chance she is impacted, but it's not terribly...

    Sticky: Re: If you buy a frog from a large pet store

    I wholeheartedly agree. Petsmart/Petco really aren't an ideal place to purchase any live pet (unless you are adopting through their rescue-run adoption centers).

    I bought pets from Petsmart as a...

    I have an empty 20g long tank taunting me. I've never owned a tree frog, but have been interested in getting a white's for almost 4 years now. I bought a book way back when, but...

    Based on this one pic it's a little hard to be sure. But my first thought is yes, piebald. The areas of no pigment will appear yellow, this is expected. Piebald frogs...
