Advert Description

Easy to keep frog that can be kept in groups. They are £50 each and I have a few males and females forsake.
These are an impressive 3-5 inch frog.
They are called Amazon Milk Frogs (Trachycephalus resinifictrix) due to the milky white secretions that are released from the frog’s back when threatened (this rarely occurs with captive bred animals).
These frogs get a good size, comparable to white's tree frogs, and are quite active.
They require a good sized vivarium eg: a 18x18x24 Arboreal Terrarium is a good sized enclosure for 2-4 Amazon Milk Frogs. The enclosure should provide plenty of perching areas such as wood branches or vines.
Great in a planted bioactive set up as well as fake plant set ups. A large water bowl is a necessity.
For younger Amazon Milk Frogs, moist paper towel or long fiber sphagnum moss is preferred. Adult Amazon Milk Frogs can also be kept above water instead of a substrate.
Temperature: Amazon Milk Frogs can tolerate temperatures between 70-85F, and seem very tolerant of temperature swings. Ideally, keep Amazon Milk Frogs in the mid/high 70s. A 5-10F temperature drop at night is ideal. A good Thermometer and Hygrometer is recommended to keep track of environmental conditions.
Humidity: In the wild, precipitation and humidity fluctuates based on season, with a heavy rainy season in the early part of the year. Adult Amazon Milk Frogs can handle a wide range of humidity levels, but prefer humidity levels around 50-70% with plenty of ventilation/air movement.
Young Amazon Milk Frogs do much better with 70-80% humidty, and some air movement. Moist, stagnant air is a big no-no with milk frogs, while very young animals dry out easily. Routine spraying and a full screen top will aid in providing proper humidity levels. Some keepers elect to keep Amazon Milk Frogs over water to aid in maintaining humidity.
Amazon Milk Frogs are voracious eaters, consuming anything that moves and fits into their mouth. A staple diet of appropriately sized crickets is a great place to start. Add other feeder insects such as wax worms, roaches, horn worms, and meal worms, with the occasional pink mouse. All feeder insects should be dusted with the proper vitamin/mineral supplement.
These are already proven breeders.
