techniques will be slightly different for each species of
frog, but the overall method is the same. Be aware that you
can not just make frogs breed, they have to be coaxed into
it. Luckily, you have the control over their environment,
which is the primary driving force behind breeding
First off, make sure you have a male and a female. Obviously,
two frogs of the same sex will have difficulty mating. Once
this primary step is out of the way, you will have to create
an environment like your frogs natural habitat.
Different locations in the world will have different weather
cycles. Learn as much as you can about their natural habitat.
In most cases, you will have to lower the temperature in the
colder months, stimulating a hibernative state. Likewise,
in the warmer months, you will have to raise the temperature.
This natural cycle will influence the mating cycle of the
You must make sure to include plants or branches (depending
on their natural location). The frogs will hide under them
or climb over the branches, as they do in the wild. You must
also keep the habitat and especially the water, clean at all
times. Clean and/or replace the water every couple of days
to ensure a healthy atmosphere.
When your frogs do mate, the male will climb on top of the
female. He will fertilize the eggs as they are laid. Watch
for this as it is important for you to know when they mate
and where the female lays her eggs. When they are finished,
remove the frogs from the habitat, and then remove the eggs.
This is important as in many cases the adult frogs will eat
The eggs should hatch from 7 - 21 days after being laid and
fertilized. Seperate the tadpoles from each
other, or supply a lot of aquatic plant life in one large
