i had two whites tree frogs and now down to one. Buddha just died, we're not sure why? it may have been due to the cricket eating one of her toes. she was bright green when we first got her and when we brought her home she turned brown and stayed that way until the moment she died. Kermit our only frog left is awesome, he's got some really ugly toe going on. im not sure whats wrong with him. I wish i knew i dont want another dead frog so soon. thinking about getting another so kermit isnt so lonely. He enjoyed Buddhas company.

You mentioned using distilled water in the feeding section. This is a rather dangerous suggestion as distilled water can be quite harmful to animals which need the natural minerals found in water. Also, distilled water is on the acidic side (around 5.5) and you want an amphibian's water to be ph neutral.

My budgett frog only eats every two days. He refuses to eat every day. He is also very active, which is suprising because they are usually lazy, he is awesome.

Hey yall. I have had 6 tree frogs for about 4 years, and they are so fun just to play with. One of the frogs got pregnant last year. Then we went to a restaurant and they served frog legs and they were so good. But after I got home and saw my frogs, I felt guilty about it. Their names are Robbie, Bobbie, Ribby, Fibby, Libby, and Jacob.
Jacob was the last frog I got and I couldn't think of anymore rhyming names, so I put jacob, HAHA. Then my friend ate Jacob. she was drunk and I will never forget how sad I was when that happened. But she said it tasted good, but I am sad. And then I had to go to mobile (in alabama where I live) and I gave my froggies to my friend to watch over while I was gone. But she forgot to feed them. Robbie and Libby died. That was last week. The other frogs ate Robbie and Libby. It was so sad. I didn't know that frogs could eat other frogs.

    yeah, Jane Doe, stop buying tree frogs! You obviously do not take care of them. You let your friend eat one of your frogs while you probably watched them eating it and did nothing about it. And is this the same friend who you got to feed your frogs, how do you know who ate Robbie and Libby, maybe your friend ate them, since she ate Jacob, you know that is disgraceful that you even let her eat them, that is called animal abuse and animal neglect. You and your friend should be charged with animal abuse and neglect. You do not respect the animal or for that matter probably no other animal.

I just got three White's Tree Frogs and am looking forward to the enjoyment I see you all talking about! I have only had them for 3 days and they are pretty shy as of yet. I have them in a 65 gallon terrarium that is filled with soil, moss, and live plants and plenty of driftwood to climb on. I also have a shallow water pool and a waterfall with a mister. I got the whole foggy jungle thing going on, it's awesome! I have a regular aquarium lid on it though, I wonder if I should switch to screen and specialty lights...

Hi! I've heard that some frogs get hand fed and now are berserk *cough cough* So yes this is unnatural behavior. You should do something like this...

1) Wear gloves. No I'm serious, Rule of the Dumpy: If it can't fit in your mouth, don't eat it. So wear gloves that are thick enough so he/she can't fit it in their mouth.

2)NEVER handfeed him. I'm sorry, but one day he/she is gonna break their jaw on the cage. Try "the tupperware of yummy" make a tupperware his food bowl and put him in there with 1-3 crickets. If hes not handfed, he/she will be forced to hunt. (P.S Dumpys are the only frog that can be too heavy and die, so hunting has to be firmly the way to eat.)

3) Stick to it! If he/she is not attacking your fingers take off the gloves and hold him. If he's good, feed him a soft, juicy wax worm and call it a day.


THE END

I am currently making an aquatic terrarium for a fire salamander and two fire bellied toads. Salamanders become very tame if you hold each day for a short time but never hold them for a long time. The same goes for all frogs.

I'm a teacher and we got our class pet..."Fred" a little over a year ago. He ended up being an escape artist, and escaped his cage twice. The first time for an hour. The second time for a year. I was sure he was done for, and we found him yesterday. He somehow survived in the Janitor's closet and was found yesterday hopping into a little hole in the baseboard. He seems to be doing well since we found him. He was the best pet! The children loved him so much!!! I cannot believe that we found him alive, and that he survived that long!! We are very glad to have him back...
