When deciding on a pet, a frog is a simple but yet fun pet to have. Froggy, my Argentine horned frog never let me down when I needed someone to pass the boredom with. He wasn't very active and seldom moved but was always fun to have around.
For Froggy's diet he ate mostly dead mice and lots of crickets. Although he was small in size, he had a huge appetite. Froggy was fed once a week and ate 3-5 crickets and a dead mouse.
Handling a Argentine horned frog is not done very often due to their sensitive skin. This makes it a bad pet for people who need to constantly touch and hold their frog.
His activity level was very minimal and he would go periods of time without moving much at all. He was held in a small sized tank and would often hibernate for periods of time when the temperatures were too extreme. I changed Froggy's water everyday to ensure his health.
Overall, I would suggest this type of frog to anyone looking for a pet that doesn't require a great deal of care. Although you don't get to touch him a lot, an Argentine horned frog will surely put a smile on your face.
