    Re: Need help identifying.

    It's a bull frog. They are mostly aquatic, so it should have some land, but mostly water in the enclosure. They eat big, grow big, and jump big; therefore, they need a big enclosure.
    Do not, under...

    Re: Keeping wood frogs

    I kept them years ago. They do well in a planted vivarium, kept on the cool side.

    Re: New to the South and New to Frogs

    Welcome.
    One word of advice- don't release the frogs anyplace other than where they originated from.

    Re: One frog hogging all the food

    The best solution would be to give Circle his or her own enclosure.
  5. Re: American Toad or Gray tree frog froglets?

    They look like americanus to me, but I honestly wouldn't try to ID them until they've put on some size. They will change as they grow, and the characteristics by which you can identify them will...
  6. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    No. It would be very unlikely that a CB newt, in the US, would have BSAL.
  7. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    Yes. Axolotls are probably the easiest salamander to breed. There are many available, and prices are very low, often free.

    Re: pls help me identify my frog

    100% land, with a shallow water dish, would be better. They don't mind humidity, but should not be kept wet.
    Little toads can climb low shrubbery and branches quite well.
  9. Re: American Toad or Gray tree frog froglets?

    Definitely toads, could be American toads- depends on what occurs in your area. As toadlets, species are often difficult to distinguish from each other.
    Feed them LOTS of tiny invertebrates at this...

    Re: pls help me identify my frog

    It's clearly a toad. The only toad that occurrs in the Des Moines area is the American toad. Feed it lots of tiny invertebrates- I would suggest culturing fruit flies and bean beetles ASAP. They have...
  11. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    Largely, because they are difficult to breed in captivity. The vast majority of specimens offered for sale are wild caught.

    Re: Care for a baby gray tree frog?

    I would keep it in a planted vivarium, taking extra precautions to make it escape proof. Then I would feed it lots and lots of tiny prey- as much as it could eat.

    Re: Cuban Tree Frog questions

    It seems unlikely. I would try it and see.
  14. Re: First time toad-mom, and I have a TON of questions that I can't seem to find reliable answers to. I'd really appreciate some help!

    1. The enclosure sounds good. It may be a tad humid, using a screen top, and keeping the soil drier, will help dry it out.
    2. Use a small metal sifter. Hold it over a container that can catch the...

    Re: Baby toad advice

    I'd say that you are on the right track, however it is important for them to have someplace to burrow. A pile of sphagnum moss in a corner should do the trick. If it were me, I'd do a substrate of...

    Not without a clear photo and a location.
  17. Re: Wild older alligator lizard taken away from cat

    If it's not injured, just set it someplace sheltered, where it can recuperate. Outdoor cats are very hazardous to wildlife, aren't they?

    Re: Mites or Springtails?

    Springtails move much more quickly than mites- and they swarm around feces.
    Sounds like you have springtails.

    Re: Planted toad tank Help

    Nurseries do generally use fertilizers and pesticides. Before planting in a vivarium, I remove the plants from the pots, and rinse them carefully, leaves, roots and all. I use the mist setting on a...
  20. Re: New wild frog on pathos plant Need help identifying

    They will generally eat any small, moving prey that will fit into their mouths. They often take a few days to adjust to captivity before they will eat. It could also be that the frog may not be in...
  21. Re: New wild frog on pathos plant Need help identifying

    I agree, it looks like a Cuban tree frog.

    Re: My darling tree frog???

    Try other foods, such as fruit flies or bean beetles. Make sure your temperatures and humidity are appropriate for this species- and leave it alone for a while. No handling.

    Re: What species of newt is this?

    It isn't a newt, it's an Ensatina.
    It appears to be an Oregon Ensatina, Ensatina eschscholtzii oregonensis.

    Re: Blue spotted salamander info

    I keep mine in a heavily planted vivarium with lots of leaf litter and bark for hiding. Since they climb, they must have a tight, escape proof lid. They have a water dish, but seldom use it. Temps...
