Where did you get them?

If you collected them from the wild, I would suggest returning them and doing a bit of research on the species of frog that you are interested in BEFORE bringing them home. This way you are not stressing them out by making them wait for you to learn the proper care of them and having them end up dead.

Just put them in the enclosure! You really need to be prepared before bringing any new pet home!

No do not put them in a enclosure of yours. Release them back into the wild in a safe space and take a trip to the pet store. See what they have for sale and do some research on how to care for them. Then when you are ready you shouldn't have a hard time taking care of the frogs being sold at the pet store.

Yes and as stated definitely DO NOT put them in the same enclosure... especially if they are not the same species of frog.

Example... mix a toad with a tree frog... the toad WILL release toxins and kill the tree frog.

If the toad is smaller than the tree frog... the tree frog WILL eat the toad

release then, get a glass aquarium... research a few different species and check with breeders. At least that way you can be a bit more selective and know more about the health and previous care of the animal

Can you post a picture the crickets should be no bigger than the width of its mouth. And you'll need a 20 gallon tank or more with 2 you'll want to look it up I caught my western pacific tree frog put it in a little tiny tank with some flies looked him up on the net using the distinct features of the frog. Careful though some frogs are illegal to capture.
Now he's a healthy happy frog and all it took was a few hours on the internet and about 50$ to set up his home. I love him and he's comfortable. do not touch the frogs without knowing what kind it is and make sure to wash your hands right after. Some are poisones .
