In my experience, these frogs are extremely quiet and easy to take care of. I fed mine mealworms, crickets, worms, and other insects with no problem. They are strong jumpers, so I recommend getting a deep aquarium or one with a lid that can lock. I'm not sure how it happened, but two of mine escaped and ended up hopping into our basement.
Reptiles and amphibians pose a greater challenge in regards to fostering a real connection with them, at least for me. For this reason, I wasn't overtly impressed with their characteristics as pets, but they really were beautiful.
My brothers and I caught 4 of them on a camping trip and held on to them for 2 years. We then released them back into the wild. In that time, they brightened up our living room with their striking patterns and were interesting conversation pieces.
I would recommend this breed of frog for any parents looking to teach their children the responsibility of caring for an animal.
