Home > Frogs > Care Sheets

 
Pixie Frogs are some of the words largest frogs. They will eat any animal that is housed with them, including other Pixie Frogs and in the wild they inhabit most of sub-saharan Africa.
 
Natural Location: Africa
Average Lifespan: 20 years

Feeding & Water

Because of the voracious appetite of Pixie Frogs it is important not to feed them too many fatty foods. Rodents fall into this category, and although Pixie Frogs tend to like eating them, they can cause your frog to gain weight. Furthermore, take great care when feeding them as they will bite your hand if they suspect it contains food. Likewise, exercise caution when attempting to handle them.

A clean bowl of water should be provided at all times as Pixie Frogs like to soak in it. Consequently, it will be necessary to change the water daily.

 

Temperature, Lighting & Humidity

80 degrees F is a good temperature to keep the habitat at during the day. At night the temperature can be lowered 5 to 10 degrees F.

Relatively high humidity should be provided for Pixie Frogs. A humidity level of approximately 80% is best.

 

Housing

Pixie Frogs have no special housing requirements. It is highly recommened that each Pixie Frog has its own enclosure. They can be very aggresive and will eat any animal that can fit in its mouth.
