When I was little, I LOVED frogs. I had frog toys, frog clothes, frog stickers - I even had an earring that made it look like a golden frog was jumping through my earlobe. (Kind of hard to explain, haha!) Eventually, I got a few tiny frogs as pets, and I kept them in an aquarium. However, if I remember correctly, they didn't live for very long - a few months, perhaps. I don't know whether to chalk this up to the fact that I was young and maybe not the best at caring for them, or if they really just don't live very long.

Have you owned a pet frog? What kind of tips do you have for caring for them?

YES! I love frogs. My brother owned a pet frog. We ended up feeding our frog crickets because it was the only thing available. However, he didn't end up eating a lot of them at a time, so they went to waste. I wish they had flies we could buy. I feel like that is more of what frogs like to eat. I would also recommend cleaning the cage often at least once a week if not more. It can smell very bad especially when crickets don't get eaten.

Frogs need to be fed on a regular basis so you need to know where your food source is going to be. It is not like going to your local grocery store and picking up dog food. If you have a frog that eats live bugs you might find the bugs running around the house now and then when they get out of the frog tank. Larger frogs can be even more work because some of them feed on mice and for me that is not a pleasant thought.

Thanks for the advice, Beryl. Catching live bugs ourselves instead of going to a pet store and buying only what they had available would have been a lot better for my frog.
