Spur frogs need a lot of water. The long fingers of their hind legs are connected by a swimming membrane and three of them end with sharp horn claws. The Spur frog is also notable for its wide mouth, into which it thrusts its prey with its thin long fingers of its forepaws, and with its closely set eyes that give it a meaningful expression.
Ground frogs require a horizontal terrarium. The area of the terrarium depends on the genus to which the amphibian of your choice belongs. Terrestrial frogs include decorated tree frog, tomato frog, aquifer frog, spotted cassina and various slingshot frogs. and this, as you understand, is not a complete list of representatives of terrestrial amphibians.
Some species of frogs, in which suckers are poorly developed, have very flexible, movable fingers, with the help of which they can wrap around branches. Some copepod frogs have well-developed membranes between the fingers, which allows you to plan during jumps. For tree frogs, a vertical terrarium is necessary, its dimensions (height, area), equipment. completely dependent on the future inhabitant.
Tree frogs include tree frogs. The tree frog family is one of the most extensive families, which includes almost 600 species. The most common inhabitants of terrariums. Far Eastern tree frog, Common tree frog, Harlequin tree frog, Red-eyed tree frog, Coral tree frog and various copepods.
But we want to remind you that many tree frogs are poisonous! After contact with animals, do not forget to wash your hands thoroughly with soap, including around and under the nails.
Different types of frogs require different conditions of maintenance, such as temperature, humidity, the presence of ultraviolet light and light. The diets are also different. from Drosophila to the large mouse. It is necessary to remember about mineral and vitamin supplements of foreign production, which must be added to the diet. Regular feeding of vitamins with a fairly uniform feeding does not meet the needs of amphibians in all macro- and microelements.
