    why dont you try looking at websites that have frogs for sale, then if you see some kinds that you like, do a little research on their size/care and whatnot. thats what i did before i decided to buy all my little dudes

    dart frogs are pretty small, so are bumble bee walking toads. every species of frog or toad has its own care requirements.

    This would be a huge list, but I will give a few. Darts, mantellas, and Atelopus toads are a given. The last one rarely if ever offered. So there you have a few. Here are a few more.
    clown treefrogs, Dendropsophus leucophyllatus
    hourglass treefrogs, Dendropsophus ebraccatus
    marbled or bird-poop treefrog, Dendropsophus marmorata
    red-spotted treefrogs, Hypsiboas punctatus
    greater hatchet-faced treefrog, Sphaenorhynchus lacteus
    tiger-legged monkey frog, Phyllomedusa hypochodrialis
    western green toads, Anaxyrus debilis insidior
    red-spotted toads, Anaxyrus punctatus
    oak toads, Anaxyrus quercicus
    bumble bee toads, Melanophryniscus stelzneri
    red-backed rubber frogs, Phrynomantis microps
    red-banded rubber frogs, Phrynomantis bifasciatus
    marbled rain frog, Scaphiophryne marmorata
    red rain frog, Scaphiophryne gottlebei
    eastern narrow-mouthed toad, Gastrophryne carolinensis
    great plains narrow-mouthed toad, Gastrophryne olivacea
    reed frogs, Afrixalus, Heterixalus, and Hyperolius sp.

    My take on sizing is that feeding can be more difficult (or at the very least, inconvenient), with smaller frogs, especially for a novice. I think that it really depends on one's level of experience, the availability of live feeders in your area, and the species in question.

    Personally, I've gotten very comfortable with my 1/2 inch cricket routine, and while I'd be capable of shifting to a pinhead/fruitfly routine, and I have a reptile store that stocks tons of live feeders, it all sounds like a bit of a hassle. Props to those who do it, but I've got enough escapee feeders and cultures going right now. I don't know if I'd have the patience for catching escaped fruitflies (flighless though they may be) etc.

    If you feel up for the challenge, go for it, and let us know what you get. There are a lot of beautiful, tiny options, as Kurt mentioned.

    And I second missclick's motion: do tons of research. If you can narrow down to a handful of species you're interested that you know the basics on, we can probably help you out a lot more.
