Frogs In The House Bring Luck

Yet many species of amphibians are active at night, and the croaking of the male will not let you sleep, so it's best to select daily species. For example, Spotted Dart frogs are exclusively diurnal. They have bright color with in different variations: the spots are black, white, red, or blue. Still there is one "but": the skin of these frogs emits toxic substances, so handle them carefully, wash hands frequently, and use rubber gloves. When it stays in captivity the toxic emissions reduced, and in the next generation it may completely disappear.

Oriental fire-bellied toad has red or orange belly with dark spots. Thanks to a combination of visual appeal and simplicity, these amphibians are very suitable for life in the terrarium. They quickly get used to the owner and eat out of hands with pleasure. They are not aggressive and are very active: sing, swim and jump throughout the day.

Coral (or Australian) tree frog is also easy to maintain. This is white tree frog, but its body color varies depending on temperature, humidity, overall health and mood, as well as the environment. The color can be: waxy whitish-bluish, turquoise, bright grass-green, dark green and pale brownish-red, coral.

Very unusual is a Tomato frog. It differs with strikingly bright red color and is also called Tomato Microhylidae. That bright coloration warns potential predators that the frog is inedible, and in case of the danger the skin releases very sticky white toxic substance, which can glue predator’s jaws (eg, snakes). This frog is hardy, and is able to live in a simple aquarium with a small pond.

Some species of frogs can fly, for example, Wallace's flying frog. These amphibians can do long jump for distances over 20 meters. Large webbing between their fingers and skin folds on the sides allow them to float and leg pads help ensure a soft landing and holding on tree trunks. Wallace frogs eat only insects, and in captivity they are usually fed with crickets.

Most of the frogs, which are cared for properly, can live in captivity up to 25 years and become real friends and mascots of the family.
