    It is great that one seeks advice ! After all, that's why we are here !!!

    4-temp
    5-water - type - for both misting and soaking dish
    6-materials used for substrate
    7-enclosure set up i.e. plants( live or artificial) wood, bark etc -how were things prepared prior to being put into the viv
    8-main food source
    9-vitamins and calcium ? ( how often )
    10-lighting
    11-what is, specifically, being used to maintain the temperature of the enclosure
    12-when is the last time he ate
    13-have you found poop lately
    14-a pic would be great ( including the frog ) any little cell phone pic is fine
    15- how old is the frog
    16-how long have you owned him
    17- is the frog wild caught or captive bred
    18- frog food- how often and if its diverse what other feeders are used as treats
    19- about how often the frog is handled
    20-is the enclosure is kept in a high or low traffic area

    I don't know how I missed that. Lol!

    How about how often the frog is handled and whether the enclosure is kept in a high or low traffic area.

    How often do you perform maintainence? Remove fecies? Change substrate and clean the enclosure? What do you use to clean the enclosure? How often do you change the frogs water source?

    And this list applies to any species. It is hard to diagnose a problem over the internet. To make sure we give the right advice, we need to know as much information about the frog as possible.

    Thanks for putting this list together, Lynn! It is definitely something we need!

    You could cut and paste it in and out of a word doc ( or similar). It will sure save a lot of typing, and hopefully a lot of FROGS!!

    Excellent post!!! Perhaps we could request it be listed in with the care sheets also, if possible. That way this thread can be easily found by everyone and it will not have to be "bumped" for it to be found at a later date .

    REVISED ( 5/10/2014) PLEASE SEE POST #20


    Could this be a sticky ? (of formatted questions)

    GrifTheGreat and I ( flybyferns) threw this list of questions together one day.
    When done-- we had a final list of questions to help "move things along" and save a lot of typing when trying to help a FF member and their frog.

    The reason I titled the new thread, at the time , "I whish I had a sticky" was because they were questions that I had typed over and over and over that day when trying to help FF members.

    I see members going back to this thread !!!! ----cutting and pasting the questions--then answering them in a NEW thread!
    It's quite helpful ! It is also a great teaching aid , as the it helps to begin to prioritize the most important information for the care of their particular frog when posted in the proper forum area.


    Trouble in the enclosure or a frog is sick ?
    It is great that one seeks advice ! After all, that's why we are here !!!
    There actually may be nothing wrong , or conversely, a change in behavior warrants keeping a close eye on your froggy friend !

    'patience is a virtue' AND 'time is of the essence'

    If there is trouble in the frog enclosure it will be very helpful if one could provide as much of the following information as possible:
    THEN---- post this information in the proper forum area to get advice from FF members that keep the same frog so there is no confusion

    1-size of enclosure
    2-# on inhabitants - specifically ( if there is another frog ---size differences ?)
    3-humidity
    4-temp
    5-water - type - for both misting and soaking dish
    6-materials used for substrate

    I don't know if you still have this froggy or not, but I to have a grey tree frog that I have had since he was a froglet. He was very high strung when he was younger. I have had him for 3 years this spring and about half way through last fall he started to settle down (a lot). Like I said he was VERY high strung and then it seemed like over night he settled in to being in captivity or something and just stopped climbing the walls of his home for hours on end. I thought he might be getting depressed or sick but with in a few days of him stopping his erratic behavior, he started singing (calling) for the first time since we had had him (which is how I know he is a boy). I think what had happened is he finally settled in to his niche within our family and on top of that he may have reached or is reaching sexual maturity. He is a perfectly happy little frog now, he only climbs the walls on feeding day as he knows food will be coming soon and I think he is trying to get my attention so I will feed him early, lol. Your frog may be experiencing something similar and has started to mellow out a little. I do know that young greys will wander for a long time until they feel they have found their own territory. Since he is a little older now he may have realized that his home is his territory, lol. Greys are pretty mellow frogs for the most part. Honestly, he should be perched quietly in a corner or on a leaf for most of the day. That's just how they are. I hope all worked out with him and he is still with you. My Greys are the sweetest frogs I have ever owned and I am glad they were my first love in the herp world! Hope my post helps out, even if only a little. And if anyone sees something I was wrong about, please feel free to correct me. I want to be as up-to-date as possible on my froggy facts! Thanks!

    Default HELP is HERE- Trouble In The Enclosure ?

    Is there trouble in the enclosure or a frog is sick ?
    It is great that one seeks advice !
    After all, that's why we are here !!!

    There ,actually, may be nothing wrong ?
    A change in behavior warrants keeping a close eye on the frog.
    Diarrhea or a break-in-the-skin needs to be treated properly and ASAP !
