First of all, it’s important to state the uncomfortable truth about wild frog populations: they are being decimated on an unprecedented scale, and many species face extinction. Human activities are the primary cause for this, and unfortunately the pet trade is no exception as it helps to spread the deadly Chytrid fungus that is threatening the continued existence of so many wonderful creatures. It is absolutely vital that you can be certain that any frog you buy has been bred locally in captivity and is free of disease. This isn’t always as simple as it sounds, but the fact is that if you can’t be sure, you shouldn’t buy one, or you threaten the very creatures you enjoy so much.
There are well over 4000 known species of frog, so the diversity is enormous, and as a result there are frequently very large differences in the care of different kinds of frog. Some are very small and others may easily reach several inches in length; some will live just a few years, but others may well approach two decades of life. Some frog tanks are also fairly trick to set up and maintain, especially those which need a semi-aquatic environment to thrive. All of these things are important to find out before you buy a frog, but they can be rewarding creatures when you’ve got everything in place.
