    Toad update!! She's about 6-6.5in SVL now and doing just great. We had a cross country move and she handled it like a champ, although we've gone back to square 1 as far as trust is concerned. She's...

    ACF escapee; need tips to help rehydrate

    I've got tank security covered I think (will be adding a large landscaping brick to the lid to keep him in in the future) but I got to him just barely in time and he'd almost desiccated to death by...

    Good LPS in NW Arkansas or Kansas City?

    I've just moved to NW Arkansas from NJ. I had a couple awesome local pet stores out there (seriously check out Reptile Roadhouse or Major League Exotic Pets if you're in NJ; both are excellent) I'm...

    Re: White Flies

    They also might be fungus gnats, which breed in wet soil and often come in on houseplants. I had that problem with my toad's enclosure; I had to pull all her soil out and replace it. I baked the soil...

    Re: Fungus gnats

    I appreciate it! Sorry I was unclear; the sundew isn't going to go in with her. It's going to be in its own pot in the frog room, providing passive protection to all the tanks. I know that there are...

    Awesome to hear your girl is finally eating on her own. It's interesting that she only wanted to eat small bugs. If you need to order bugs online, I have had great experiences with Dubiaroaches.com....

    Thank you! She's doing great! Growing like a weed; she's about 5-5.5 inches SVL now and getting bolder by the day. I also got confirmation (using this scientific article about sexing cane toads by...

    Hello! I brought in a houseplant that apparently had some fungus gnats in the substrate, and they've spread to my terrestrial frog enclosures. How do I get rid of them without harming my frogs? Is it...

    Got a vet appointment for 3PM today. He's in a critter keeper on a wet paper towel substrate for quarantine, and I'm going to completely gut and redo his enclosure. Thanks folks.

    Re: Cane toad won't leave water area

    Never got an answer but I'll post an update-- turns out she was only hiding in the water when I was around. She isn't sick, she was just terrified of me and hiding in the water. I've been leaving her...

    Re: Bufo Alvarius Diet Question

    I've never had problems with nightcrawlers when feeding any of my critters. IME crickets seem to be more prone to parasites than nightcrawlers are.

    Why not work with her and offer nightcrawlers? Nightcrawlers are a fantastic staple, highly nutritious, and chitin-free.

    Cane toad won't leave water area

    I just got a new cane toad two days ago. I was hoping for a CB one but she's actually WC from Florida where they're invasive. She had a tick on her when she arrived (promptly removed) and no other...

    Probably not MBD then assuming your toads eat the feeders right away. I'm assuming you're using dechlorinator for the water you use when you mist the enclosure? Letting it sit out lets chlorine gas...

    Hello! I'm Axqu and I like frogs.

    I've liked them all my life, and I'm so happy I get to have them in my adult life. I tend to favor large terrestrial frogs and big aquatic frogs, although I'll probably get at least one tree frog...
