Overwintering Indoors

Submitted by jtl60047 on Wed, 2006-11-08 16:42. Ask Frog

Hi Frog -We had a HUGE Bullfrog become rather tame and have decided to overwinter him in the house.We have created a terrarium for him that includes a pool like area with 5" of water to swim in and get wet - and a nice moss (live moss) area for him to sit/perch in/on.The terrarium is in the basement - the temp is a constant 65 degrees. Given that it's cool down there, how much food will he need (today he wolfed down 4 big crickets)? Should I set up a warming light set to go on for several hours a day (currently there is a huge 8' UV grow/florescent lamp that he is under).

By Alister Doyle, Environment Correspondent 1 hour, 22 minutes ago OSLO (Reuters) - Two frog species feared extinct have been rediscovered in Colombia, a boost for scientists battling to save rare amphibians threatened by a deadly disease. "These finds show there is still hope...a lot of these species were pretty much written off," Claude Gascon, a senior vice-president at Conservation International in Washington, told Reuters on Tuesday. Scientists have found the Santa Marta Harlequin frog and the San Lorenzo Harlequin frog, rated critically endangered after no sightings in 14 years, in a reserve in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta massif on Colombia's Caribbean coast. A fungal disease that smothers amphibians' skin is decimating dozens of species of brightly-colored frogs in Central and South America, adding to pressures such as pollution, climate change, deforestation and expanding cities.

Cope's Gray Tree Frog (Hyla chrysoscelis) and Common Gray Tree Frog (Hyla versicolor)

Submitted by frog on Fri, 2004-09-10 15:29. Gray Tree Frog | Tree Frogs | Frog Types

The two frogs named above are morphologically identical, and their habitats overlap, so they will be described together as they are in most reference material. They differ primarily by call and number of chromosomes. Since it is so difficult to tell them apart, they are generally called Gray Tree Frog.


The size of this frog ranges from 1.2-1.8 inches long in males and 1.6-2.2 inches long in females. The skin on the back is green or gray with large, dark blotches on the back. Due to changes in activity and environment, they may change colors even more to include brown, pearl-gray, or even almost white. There is usually a light, white spot below the eye. Their bellies are white, and the hidden skin behind the limbs is yellow or bright orange mottled with black. For a tree frog, the skin on their backs is quite warty, but these warts are not nearly as prominent as those on the average toad. These warts help them to camouflage especially well against the tree bark.
