Keeping frogs as pets can be quite entertaining, especially the smaller varieties, which are quite active and comical, while the larger frogs are rather inactive and will not jump around much at all.
Pet Frogs are fairly easy to look after for their requirements in temperature, humidity and light conditions are easy to keep up with, they are however susceptible to polluted environments.
You will be feeding your frogs with insects and in some cases small mice, for the larger frogs, so you cannot afford to be squeamish.
Frogs are kept in enclosures that have to be cleaned regularly and this will implicate some work, they may live for over 15 years, so you must be prepared to look after them for some time once you have purchased them, although the average life span is from 4-15 years.
Before you decide on the kind of frog you wish to purchase as a pet, make sure you do some research to ensure you understand the responsibilities and conditions your pet requires.
Prepare all the necessary materials before getting your pet, in order to welcome it to a familiar and adapted environment, which will help the pet overcome any stress it may have endured during the removal.
Make sure you understand the life cycle of your pet frog and its development, for some frogs can grow to be really quite big.
Choose the kind of tank you will need, be it terrestrial, aquatic, semi-aquatic or arboreal then set it up ready to welcome your frog pet.
