A reader asks:
“How do I take care of my frog? what do i feed him? How do I make him a home? I’m part of a Animal rescue crew and none of my facility know how to take care of them or what to do! HELP Me save this animals life!”
Ok, so let’s start –
Frogs need a humid place to live in, with humid substrate. Your best choice is moss. You should mist its cage (spray water in it using a water bottle) 2-3 times a day depending on how hot the weather is. A humidity of 70-80 % is perfect. Get a thermometer that has a humidity level on it so you’ll know what the cage temp and ambient humidity is at all times.
Also, since it is a tree frog, it needs height and things to climb on. Best choice would be branches and bamboo sticks.
It’ll need some water, though not a lot as tree frogs are poor swimmers. Take a soup bowl and fill it with a few inches of water. Not too much water or it will drown
Frogs eat insects so buy from pet stores; crickets, mealworms and occasional pinkies. Do not catch insects from the wild because of pesticides and other diseases they may carry.
