    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.
  3. 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...

    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.
  18. 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...
  19. Re: Question Regarding General Availability of Salamanders

    No. It would be very unlikely that a CB newt, in the US, would have BSAL.
  20. 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.
  22. 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...

    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.
