Don't get me wrong, I absolutely adore frogs, but no one should EVER have a leopard frog as a pet unless they have an EXTREMELY large terrarium for them to live in.
Over the course of my childhood my brother and I had several pets, including a fairly large tank with frogs. Most of them seemed content as there were 2 tree frogs and a bull frog...they mostly just hung out in the plastic plantlife hanging from the top of the tank or in their hide-away hole they dug for themselves.
This brings me to my leopard frog; it was caught in the wild and put into the tank as a new free pet. This frog is VERY active and would continuously try to leap large bounds in the tank, usually banging itself against the Plexiglas.
the frog was easy enough to feed and care for with crickets but after a couple of months it was clear the frog was NOT happy in its environment due to a lack of space so my brother and I let it go in a pond the next year when it warmed up
A lovely and entertaining frog, but you better have one hell of a large tank to satisfy its activity level.
