Frogs / toads


Links concerning Amphibians
Some books...


Amphibians consist of 3 kinds :


-Anoura including frogs, toads...

-Urodela including newts, salamanders...

-And Apoda (Typhlonectes, Cécilia,...).


These batrachians populate a big part of our globe, the dry desert in the Brazilian forests. They challenge in spite of their fragile appearance climates and various circles. Only the man will get overcome it and regrettably rather quickly (:-(

We are going to try to keep these animals in respite in best possible conditions.

A terrarium of modest size (50cm) can be sufficient for the most part of among them. It will be called " aquaterrarium " because it arranges 2 livable zones. The one is aquatic and the other one ground. Proportion will depend on your animal. For Xenopus, it will directly be an aquarium without ground zone, it is a particular case. For Bombina, a big swampy zone will be necessary.

Temperatures will be generally rather low compared with the reptiles and will exceed rarely only 25 °C except for variety show called "tropical". This excess of temperature will even be able to be harmful in the long run for certain ( Cynop). The only moment when this increase will take place will be that of the reproduction and will not exceed 3/4 month.


For the food: earthworm, flour or vase, mealworms, crickets, flies, fruit flies , moths of hives, and even for the biggest young mice or the fragments of meat or fish ( Ceratophrys). Be careful, cannibalism is common especially at individuals of different size.


Sorts the easiest to keep are the following ones:

-Frogs, Xenopus laevis, Bombina orientalis, Hyla cinerea, Ceratophrys ornata, Bufo regularis, etc....

-Newts and salamanders, Cynop orientalis, Pleurodéle of waltl, Ambystoma tigrinum, Axolotl, etc....



Some reproduce usually in captivity and their cycle life is often far from being ridiculous (about fifteen years for Bombina).

The period of reproduction will be also the moment to be invited to the concerto of your hosts frogs singing their hymn of love.

Many of the batrachians ask enough for not enough particular care with regard to the other NAC, as one calls them now (in France). Only difficulty will be all to supply them alive and varied insects the year to avoid any nutritional deficiency (To think of vitamins!!!). The rate of hygrometry and T ° should be watched as our other friends without hairs, nor feathers.

You have only pleasure once past these small concerns.
