Beautiful Frogs But Need Special Care

The Amazon Milk Frog, or blue milk frog, is a wonderfully beautiful frog for those that love different types of dart frogs. However, these are not beginner frogs. They require specialized set ups for them to thrive, a regular misting, and plenty of space. For those that have experience in successfully keeping dart frogs, this is a great step up.

These frogs are given their name because they secrete a milky like substance when they are stressed out. It is pretty gross, but pretty cool - not that it's cool to stress any frog out.

They are a bit more expensive then some of the other starter frogs out there and they require a steady amount of insects - small crickets, flightless fruit flies, and so on. If you are considering getting some Amazon Milk Frogs, make sure that you read about them first and have a good viv set up for them before you get any.

I recommend these guys for adults only, and only for experienced frog keepers.
