Frogs have recently become very popular exotic pets as they are generally undemanding, often visually appealing, and can be kept under fairly basic conditions, compared to reptiles. Many frogs, especially small ones, are inexpensive, and their food is in most cases easily purchased.
The mascot of the rainforest. Come in red, black and albino form. Easy captives. Room to upper 70s, shallow water bowl, climbing places and SMALL food. De-Chlorinated water a must! WC Adults are treated with a solution of panacure and flagyl dripped over their bodies every 3rd day for a total of 3 treatments Price:$30 Cb Babies to $45 for LTC adults
Big and green. great size and easily handled. If they stay BROWN, they are probably stressing over something and odds on it is temp. They are too warm. Keep them in the 70s. DE-CHLORINATED water a must. Price:$30 Adults, $40 Blue Phase
Love the reds. Females are brightest and WC are brighter than cb after a few generations. They may secrete a toxin from their backs but it is harmless to humans, it just tastes BAD! Again, room temps and De-CHLORINATED water is a must. Price:$30
Good pets ONCE YOU HAVE THE CAGE SET UP PROPERLY!! They like it cool, moist and some plant cover. My only proplem with them is that they cannot eat a very big item when they are small. You will need either pinhead crickets or fruit flies for the babies. DE-Chlorinated water a MUST. I can always order them but do NOT normally carry them in the summer here, it gets too hot in the shop.
Price:$40 Black/Green, $65 Blue Auratus
These are really neet little amphibians. Care is exactly the same as Red-Eyes above. WATCH the water you use and the ambient temps. THESE MUST BE TREATED THOROUGHLY with Pedialyte and Panacur. Put the Pedialyte and panacur in a spray bottle diluted to a light milky look. Spray on the frogs every three days
Price:$45 CBB babies
Nice frog pet. Small, colorful and easy. they do secrete a sort of toxin so wash your hands after handling, but they are harmless. Room temp, DE-CHLORINATED water a must. Price:$7
