    We were given 2 tree frogs in a 10 gallon fish tank (for our Grandson) because the frogs bark.

    Where can I go on the web to identify them?
    Will the salts in softened water hurt them?
    Besides Crickets, what other foods are good?


    We are atempting a crash course to keep our new house guests comfortable.

    www.kingsnake.com is huge reptile site. I always used RO water for mine cause they can obsorb threw there skin. Anything that moves and fits comfortably in their mouth is game. I use to raise tree frogs but, no more now. They are neat little critters, very vocal when happy. Have fun with them.

    You must likely have 2 barking tree frogs. Your best bet is to cruise aroung kingsnake.com and dig of info. Best to use rain water or distilled water, as stated before, amphibians absorb through skin. Best diet consits of a variety of insect.

    Every animal is native to one area or another... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rock.gif[/img]

    what does this have to do with keeping tree frogs? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Well you cant just go outside and pick up a squirrle and keep it as a pet, nor a wild bird. You cant go collecting snakes from your backyard and put them in a terrarium. What makes anphibians so special?

    You know what i mean. THATS WHY WE HAVE INVASIVE SPECIES! The animals introduced have no types of control for them, so they spread indefenatly. Just look at the feild of leafy spurge behind my house!!!
    Tecnacly a population can grow indefantly. The only reason why were not overrun with things is because they are kept in check by control factors like disease. Introduced dont have that problem!

    Red fire ants arnt native, so was it ok to bring them to the states?! NO! Just look at hawaii, all the native animals and plants are being pushed to extinction by exotic introduced species.

    BLAH! BLAH BLAH BLAY, YAP YAP DRIBBLE DRIBBLE!

    Actually, in the U.S., you can go picking up snakes in your backyard and putting them in a terrarium. Birds are protected by the migratory bird act, though house sparrows or starlings, you could go grab outside and keep as a pet. Squirrels may require a hunting or trapping license, otherwise, you could. Any amphibian, reptile, or insect (so long as it is native) from outside can prettymuch be kept as a pet.

    Introduced and non-native insects require a plant pest permit, which requires you not to release them outside. In that case, it's any non-native insects that require a permit, not native ones.

    As for exotic amphibians, despite the problems they have caused, there aren't any laws in the U.S. that really stop more from being introduced, despite problems already occurring.
