Hi everyone—

Thanks to anyone who replied to my previous post for advice in setting up a green frog/leopard frog tank! I just submitted the proposal to my supervisor and approval may take a little while but looks very promising.

Now for the fun part--finding the actual frogs! I know I can purchase leopard frogs from Carolina Biological Supply, but I would really prefer to get them from someone who has more specific experience with frogs. Does anyone have either species for sale, or know of someone who breeds them? If someone were interested in donating, we are a tax-deductable organization (and I would make sure a special “thank you” was posted on our Facebook page as well, haha). I did put a line-item on the budget for purchase of the frogs, so if selling them is preferable, that’s not a problem at all. I’m kinda leaning towards leopards, since from what I’ve read they’re a bit heartier than greens.

Like I said, it may be a few weeks before I can actually obtain the little guys, pending approval and how long it takes me to set up the tank. Just wanted to get a jump on things (and if I have to defend my proposal, I already have some leads on the animals).

Thanks so much!

I believe those "grow a frog" kits have Leopard frog tadpoles and small frogs you can buy. I think they even sell extra frogs/tadpoles

I have 2 females but they arnt for sale atm as they are my breeders all I can say is that a lot of sites say to use a heatlamp and others say they don't need it. get a ceramic heat lamp and a exo terra under tank dessert mat to cover the one side (hotside) now get 3 hides one can me just a Tupperware with a lid that ill come back to I a sec. and get a piece of really low pile carpet from a co-op or other similar store and pit it in the bottom or use paper towel. put one hide on one side and the other one on the hot side take the tuper ware container cut a hole in the side put moist paper towel into it this makes a perfect spot for the litter guys to shed and makes it easyer on them (sheding dosnt feel cool to a leo idk why oh and they can be agresive when sheding so don't touch em) now u need a water dish go with zoomeds bearded dragon food/water dish and fill half way with room temp water place on cool side and then if u want decorate with grapevine fake plants or even real plants or mix it up oh and use a bue light at night on the cool side to observe and if u don't have a window aalible get a uvb 10.0 bulb to simulate sunlight not they they absolutely need it it just helps preven degenerative bone disease. and rotate between meal worms and crickets (never use super worms) and make sure the cricket is no longer or wider than the width of the smallest leos mouth. and I believe u can use a heated rock in there as the heat helps digest food. I don't have one cus I just don't trust them. lol sorry for the book but this is a general care sheet I wrote for u and if some one sees any major errors please feel free to correct this is just what worked for me and many others I know
