Very easy to keep and look after, and something a little bit different to your hamsters and rabbits :-) and do come in a handful of color morphs
I don't know what I had expected from owning a frog, but in the end it wasn't for me. These frogs don't tend to move around too much (but then I wouldn't expect many species to be hopping around all day) they make small burrows and bed down for long periods, but you can generally always see them.
You need to be careful when handling as they can absorb any chemicals that might be on your hands - so wash your hands before picking them up removing any hand lotion etc and make sure your hands are damp as they can dry out the frogs skin - so they are not an animal that is suitable for handling for any prolonged period of time (mine would be picked up literally only when i cleaned out his tank).
the fun part with these guys is feeding time, this is when they are at their most active and will take small mice as well as bugs - hence Kermit with a twist.
a nice little pet to have but to me was more of a decorative addition.
