    Re: Cricket delivery and tips

    I haven't found an economical source of crickets in quantities of less than 500. If you only need a few dozen here and there, a pet store is probably your best bet.
    I have tried many suppliers. For...

    Re: Substrate Consumption

    Small amounts of substrate are usually harmless, as they pass right on through.

    Re: What kind of frog is this?

    Both of the gray tree frogs, Cope's and versicolor, have the yellow/orange flash colors on the legs. It isn't a valid method of distinguishing them.
  4. Re: Tips on raising temperature in tank while not lowering humidity?

    Is the enclosure covered? If not, a cover or partial cover would help maintain heat and humidity. Or you could simply turn up the thermostat on your under tank heater. If this results in a loss of...

    Here is a local craigslist ad in Minnesota:

    You might have to persuade them to ship, it appears.

    Re: Road Trip with My Frog.

    You could simply put the frogs container in a cooler, with a bottle of warm water inside the cooler to keep if from getting too cold.

    Not too much credit, Larry Wardog. I have a hunch that you knew the answer to that one, too.

    Re: Mealworm culture advice.

    They would have to grow larger before they transform into beetles and reproduce.

    Re: Mealworm culture advice.

    Mealworms are easy. You need a bin, grain-based bedding, and moisture.
    Any shallow bin will do. For grain, I use chicken layer crumbles- non medicated. You could also use chick starter, however I...

    Re: Freeze dried mealworms for baby toads?

    Yes. As long as they arrive alive and robust, mealworms are pretty much a commodity.

    Re: Freeze dried mealworms for baby toads?

    It is very unlikely that your toads will recognize dead, non-living mealworms as food. You would be better off culturing live mealworms. It's easy, and you can enhance the nutritional content of the...

    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...

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

    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.
  19. 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...
  20. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    No. It would be very unlikely that a CB newt, in the US, would have BSAL.
  21. 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.
  23. 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...
  25. 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.
