Pixie frogs are a species of frog that is native to Madagascar. They are also known as the Tomato Frogs, due to their red and orange coloration. Pixie frogs can grow to be about 4-5 inches in length, and they typically live for 10-12 years.
Pixie frogs are semi-aquatic, meaning that they spend part of their time in water and part of their time on land. In the wild, Pixie frogs live near water sources such as ponds, streams, and rivers. They are also known to inhabit areas of high humidity, such as rainforests.
Pixie frogs are typically an orange or red color, with some variation in pattern and coloration. Some Pixie frogs may have darker spots on their body, while others may be almost completely solid in color.
What can I feed my Pixie frog?
Pixie frogs are insectivores, meaning that their diet consists primarily of insects. In the wild, they will eat a variety of different insects, including crickets, beetles, and flies. In captivity, Pixie frogs can be fed a diet of commercially-available insectivore food, or they can be fed live insects.
What kind of enclosure to I use for my Pixie frog?
Pixie frogs are relatively easy to care for in captivity. They should be housed in an enclosure that is at least 10 gallons in size, and that has a layer of substrate on the bottom. A water source should also be provided, such as a small water dish or a shallow area of the substrate that is constantly kept moist. Pixie frogs will also appreciate some hiding spots in their enclosure, such as rocks or logs.
Pixie frogs typically do not require any special lighting, but if you wish to provide them with additional UVB exposure, you can do so with the use of a fluorescent bulb designed for reptiles. Pixie frogs should also have access to a basking spot, which can be created by placing a heat lamp over one end of the enclosure.
Pixie frogs are generally easy to care for, and they make great pets for both beginners and experienced reptile keepers alike.
