This frog was very fun to have and care for. The main issue was an inability to be handled (due to the aggressiveness of the species) which made cleaning his cage difficult but was never impossible. He ate well on a diet that consisted of occasional thawed pinky mice and horned frog food pellets. The species isn't generally very active unless it's time to eat and he kept to himself in his little corner. Unfortunately he died unexpectedly one day which was strange because he seemed neither sick nor lacked an appetite. I spoke to some experts and they mentioned that due to minor environmental changes or minor stresses can sometimes be enough to kill them. I'm not sure which it was but he died nonetheless. I was pretty upset. I don't recommend these for beginners as they can be a challenge to clean and seemingly minor circumstances can be too much for them.
