Pet frogs for kids


Remember though, frogs don’t actually like being petted. Contact with them should be minimal but much enjoyment can be had by observing them.

African Dwarf Frogs

African Dwarf frogs are great for teaching young children about the responsibilities of keeping a pet. They are social animals so we sell them in pairs and are quite hardy which is why they are a great choice for children. Also they are only 1 to 1½ inches long so have the cute factor.

African Dwarf frogs can live for several years and exist on a diet that includes bloodworms, brine shrimp, live guppy free, glassworms, amphibian food pellets and earthworms.

Red Eyed Tree Frog

Red Eyed Tree frogs are beautiful, colorful creatures with bright red eyes, vivid green back and orange toes. These creatures grow to about 2-3 inches and love to climb and jump. They have a life expectancy of around 4 to 10 years.

Whilst these frogs can be delicate they are a good choice for the beginner. They like to eat live insects so its always good fun watching them catch their dinner! Red Eyed Tree Frogs are nocturnal so they may not be the best choice for a school classroom pet.

White’s Tree Frog

White’s Tree frogs are bigger and much hardier frogs, making them a great choice for a beginner frog keeper. They love their food and have earned themselves the nickname of “Dumpy” tree frog as they have a tendency to eat a little too much and become overweight.

These frogs are native to Australia and can live up to a whopping 21 years old. They grow up to 4 inchs long.

Tomato Frog

Well known for its bright red color, the Tomato Frog is one of the most colorful species of frogs there are. The back of the frog is usually orangish-red to bright red with yellowish undersides and sometimes black spots on their throats. While males are usually a little orange to brown in color, younger ones are usually a little pale; acquiring their bright colors only once they mature. It is common to buy babies that are more of a brown color and grow them into colorful adults.
