  1. Re: new white's tree frogs not eating or moving

    Ok your setup sounds good. Iíd continue to offer live 1/4 to 1/2 inch crickets every other day or so and monitor them closely. Iím sorry the seller didnít provide you with at the very least some...
  2. Re: new white's tree frogs not eating or moving

    Welcome to the hobby. I’m going to ask a few questions and offer some suggestions to get you on track. Obviously though, I cannot get into all the care specifics but we need to begin somewhere. I’d...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    I would try offering prey often. Anything you think appropriate will do. However fruitflies are poor in nutrients so you may want to dust them. If you can, get pinhead crickets. All I can say is be...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    Ok your husbandry seems to be spot on. I might consider switching the substrate to plain moist paper towels as it may be easier for them to spot the prey items and it can give you an idea as to...

    Re: Phyllomedusa Bicolor HELP!!

    Can you describe the setup in detail? These guys like it a bit drier than most and will bask given the opportunity so Provide a uv/heat combo light and keep a basking spot near 80 at the top of the...
  6. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    I looked over the ruling and it’s vague. It seems to apply more to large constrictors and I couldn’t find anything relevant to salamanders in the wording. If you post a link that mentions them...
  7. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    The Lacey Act was amended by FWS in 2016 and it now lists 201 species of salamander as injurious. It essentially bans sale ownership and transport of almost all salamanders. There is a strain of...

    Re: Homemade cricket gut load

    I just use cold water. Hot water is not going to make a difference. Just give them a good wash and you should be fine

    Re: my boys seem to want to get out

    What type of furnishings do you have in the enclosure? Offering some type of cover such as plastic plants at the top of the enclosure or some cork rounds leaned up against the sides may help.

    Re: Homemade cricket gut load

    I’ve been using an alternating schedule of carrots and organic dandelion greens as my base. I’ll add a little dry dog food now and then (maybe once a month or two). Endives are good and so is kale...

    Re: Toad with red leg???

    Excellent. Give it a week or two and keep your fingers crossed.
  12. Re: I built a Bioactive Vivarium for toads... but now I want a Leopard Frog

    I agree. There isn’t a tremendous amount of care information, particularly regarding native species in the hobby. Honestly it never hurts to subscribe to some scientific journals though. They offer...
  13. Re: Separating flightless fruit flies from dust?

    I pour a little supplement into a 32 oz deli cups, add the flies and shake. It’s easy once you get the hang of it and it allows you to dust more evenly. As far as removing excess dust the best way is...
  14. Re: I built a Bioactive Vivarium for toads... but now I want a Leopard Frog

    You obviously spent a substantial amount of time on your build and it looks great. However it’s not appropriate for leopard frogs. I’d consider a different species since it would be a shame to break...

    Re: Tell me if this can work

    I’d avoid the combination entirely. Feeder guppies will in all likelihood be consumed and there is the risk them passing on pathogens including but not limited to parasites. Also the genus bombina...

    It’s unlikely that you’ll have problems. I just wouldn’t make a habit of it.

    Re: Toad with red leg???

    What I’m seeing in the picture could be almost anything. Possibly an injury or a burn that didn’t heal properly, chemical exposure etc. but regardless of the cause this is one sick toad. Be advised...
  19. Re: What kind of frogs is easy to keep? Thanks!

    You are welcome. I only offer advice on species that I have personally kept so I can’t comment on most of the species you listed. Unfortunately red is a relatively uncommon color when it comes to...
  20. Give Away: Re: Thousands (millions?) of tadpoles in my pool. Any takers in Jacksonville Florida U.S.A. ?

    Odds are you are out of luck. Unless a local camp or science teacher wants them it’s going to be very hard to rehome even a few of them. I’d also check your local laws before interfering.(you never...
  21. Re: What kind of frogs is easy to keep? Thanks!

    You may want to try Litorea caerulea (whites treefrog). Although they are not red they are a good beginner species.

    Pinky mice are not a staple feeder. They may be offered on occasion to add variety but are by no means necessary. Feeder fish are extremely unhealthy, offer unbalanced nutrition and may contain...

    Ok. Whites will tolerate a wider spectrum in terms of relative humidity so I wouldn’t fret too much. A moist substrate will evaporate into the air and if you restrict some of the ventilation (ie by...

    Re: Is my hygrometer working?

    I’d be more inclined to trust the vivarium electronics hygrometer but note that most inexpensive hygrometers are unreliable. Just out of curiosity, what species, set up etc are you trying to monitor?

    No problem it’s my pleasure. I only wish I could have been more helpful. Good luck with your animals and enjoy the holiday.
