Brown Suriname Horned Frogs are some of the most exciting and unique creatures. Native to the rainforest of South America, these frogs can grow up to 10 inches in length, and they boast an awe-inspiring array of defenses. Their sharp horns and tough skin make them adept predators, while their loud bellowing call lets other animals know that they're not safe either. Brown Suriname Horned Frogs make fascinating pets; they're lively, curious, and always ready for a good game of catch.
To care for your Brown Suriname Horned Frog, you need to provide a moist and humid environment. This frog species is native to the tropical rainforests of South America, so they are used to living in warm and humid conditions.
You can create a suitable habitat for your Brown Suriname Horned Frog by using a glass aquarium or terrarium at least 10 gallons in size. Line the bottom of the enclosure with moist peat moss, Sphagnum moss, or a commercial frog substrate. Fill the enclosure with filtered water and mist it regularly to maintain high humidity levels. Provide hiding spots and basking areas for your frog by placing rocks, driftwood, or live plants inside the enclosure.
Brown Suriname Horned Frogs are carnivorous and will feed on various insects, including crickets, roaches, and mealworms. Feed your frog 2-3 times per week and offer food items that are no larger than the size of your frog’s head.
Brown Suriname Horned Frogs are social animals and should be kept in pairs or groups. If you are keeping multiple frogs together, make sure the enclosure is large enough to comfortably accommodate all of the frogs. Brown Suriname Horned Frogs have a lifespan of 10-15 years with proper care.
