Feeding & Water

Daily feeding should occur for juvenile Leopard Frogs that are still growing. Full-grown adults can be fed once every day or two.

Leopard Frogs are best fed a variety of insects. Make sure that whatever type of insect you feed them it is not too big. Mealworms, waxworms and crickets will suffice.

 

Temperature, Lighting & Humidity

A temperature range of 68 degrees F to 78 degrees F is satisfactory for Leopard Frogs. You can use an overhead or under-tank heater to obtain this temperature range.

As with all frogs, a well-ventilated enclosure is helpful. Leopard Frogs prefer a moderate level of humidity.

 

Housing

A 10 gallon tank is sufficient for a single Leopard Frog. Up to three of them can be housed in the same enclosure with an increase in tank size of 5 gallons for each additional Leopard Frog. Ensure that the lid is tight fitting and securely fastened as Leopard Frogs are very active and may try to escape. Your frogs enclosure should have a clean bowl of water always available.

Damp moss and bark make some of the best substrates however any type of mulch material should be sufficient.
