  1. Re: Mixing Dart frogs in the same tank.........

    You've got construction skills, why not make your own custom tanks and custom fit cabinets? If you're still on the idea of a two-part tank, building one from scratch would be more feasible than...
  2. Re: Mixing Dart frogs in the same tank.........

    Well, I don't know where you'd get small enough rapiers or pistols, but it's generally best to discourage your frogs from fighting. You should definitely break up any race wars that may be occurring...

    Re: Help ID a toad.

    Are Fowler's Toads in Nebraska? They don't seem to be on any lists and our well out of the range map on AmphibiaWeb which would make Fowler's unlikely:

    Re: Frogs/toads?

    How long they could survive would depend on the temperature, the species of frog, age of the frog, available food (insects will make it pretty much everywhere), etc. They could live in there...
  5. Re: I have baby grays! What should I do next?

    I'm not sure if springtails can climb straight up glass, but they can definitely go up the silicone on the corners. They usually want to stay down in the moist substrate though.

    Re: Feeling inadequate :/

    Your tank size is definitely small for the long term, but they should be fine until you can save up for a larger vivarium that will last their lifetime. When you do upgrade, you can keep your...

    Re: What kind of frog?

    Location info may help ID.

    You can also go out at night and listen for calls to see what you have in your area (if they're still calling this time of year where you are, they are still going...

    Re: caring for a wild injured toad

    I may be pretty heartless, but I'd send it back on it's way. You've given it a fighting chance, it will either learn to cope with it's injuries or make a meal for something larger (and that's not...

    Re: Guess it's that time of year again...

    Even if they were the same species I would separate them since they were collected at different times. At this tiny size they don't need a huge living space, so the extra work in separating them is...

    Re: Newbie from GA with first question!

    Males will sometimes wander to different ponds during the breeding season. I once watched a trio of male toads calling every night for a week from the same shallow ephemeral pond. From the utter lack...

    Re: Stinky.. Help :(

    I've been peed on dozens (hundreds?) of times over the years. By my own frogs a few times, but mostly by wild ones. Mostly Hyla versicolor, but a few other species as well. It doesn't smell like...

    Re: Stinky.. Help :(

    Sounds like pee. Tree frogs often pee when handled.. it stinks, so I've always chalked that up to self defense when coupled with handling.

    Re: Invasion Of The Tadpoles!

    I've often seen 1-2% quoted for North American tadpoles even making it onto land to the froglet stage. It's probably good most get eaten when some species can lay upwards of 10,000 eggs per year:).

    Re: Found a toad today

    Releasing it was the right thing to do. You can enjoy observing it in the wild, not just captivity.

    I don't think Cheetos even qualify as 'human food'.

    There's a decent variety of feeder insects available if you want to mix up a frogs diet.

  21. Re: Help- found frog in my indoor plant- identification please

    The poop will be little, maybe 1-2cm long and 3-4mm in diameter. Healthy frog poop will crust up after a day and can easily be cleaned up. If you break it apart you may be able to get an idea of what...
