It was never my intention to own a frog, but sometimes these things fall in our lap. This frog (named frog) came to me via a friend who was moving. Knowing nothing about frogs I trusted my friend Google to tell me what I needed to know about this animal. The enclosure wasn't too bad to keep or maintain--though it probably wasn't optimal. We kept him in a ten gallon aquarium tank with water, enclosure, fake foliage, etc. He ate crickets which we acquired from the local pet store. [A note about crickets: they can be loud, you have to keep them live in a container, and they STINK] Eventually I did end up finding a new home for Mr. Frog. He was not an unpleasant pet to have, didn't mind being held or sitting on your shoulder, but he also wasn't very exciting. If frogs are your thing I would recommend multiple ones, maybe in prettier colors, and definitely do your research. As fly-by pet acquisitions go this wasn't my worst gig, but I'm glad I found him a much better home with a true frog enthusiast.
