Petware House

Because of their predatory nature, all these frogs must be housed alone. Horned frogs (also known as “Pac-Man” frogs) are big eaters and like to Burrow or sit quietly, awaiting prey. African bullfrogs, although called “pixie,” are giants of the frog world. They may bite, so use extreme care when feeding.


Terrestrial Frogs (Large)

Includes horned frogs and Afriacan bullfrogs

Average Size

5 to 9 inches long, depending on type.

Life Span

7-15+ years.

Feeding

Feed growing frogs daily; feed adults 1 to 2 times a week. Obesity is a common problem in large terrestrial frogs, regulate their diets carefully. Provide a variety of live insects, such as crickets and mealworms; goldfish; frozen, thawed and once or twice weekly with a vitamin/mineral supplement; Clean, fresh, filtered, chlorine-free water, changed daily.

If feeding you frog live rodents, do not leave them unattended. Live rodents can injure the frog, sometimes fatally.

Housing

Juveniles require a minimum of a 10-gallon tank; for a full grown male African bullfrog, a 20+ gallon tank is necessary.

Maintenance

There are quite a few substrates that work especially well for frogs, and choosing one is a matter of personal preference for your animal's setup. Provide a deep substrate, such as commercial mulch, bark chips, large gravel, sphagnum moss, or sterile potting soil.

Spot-clean your frogs enclosure as necessary. When feces/urates/uneaten prey items are present, remove them as soon as possible. Clean & disinfect the water bowl on a weekly basis. Depending on cage conditions, remove all substrate & cage furniture and completely disinfect using a 5% bleach solution approximately every 30 days. Rinse the enclosure thoroughly and allow to dry before replacing cage furniture & your dragon.

Temps

It’s important to maintain a range of 68 degrees F to 80 degrees F., use a heat source when needed.

Humidity

Maintain humidity by misting or with a glass top over part of the screen lid.

Water & Accessories

Provide a constant supply of clean, fresh, filtered, chlorine free water in a shallow bowl that cannot be tipped over and large enough for the frog to soak in and drink from; replace water daily. Keep environment very clean.

Notes and Comments

Terrestrial frogs are sedentary, aggressive, gluttonous and cannibalistic when given the chance; awake during the day; can overpower and swallow prey almost their own size. The African bullfrog will bury itself up to its neck in leaf litter, and wait to lunge at its prey; in natural settings, bullfrogs will hibernate until the rainy season; unlike other frogs, males are larger than females.
