    For the caresheets, can we add US measurements (inches, fahrenheit) instead of only european measurements (centimeters, celcius)

    here is a good photo of philip, and one of greenie

    Most of the caresheets do use the U.S metric system. Rachel is from the U.K and she wrote several of the caresheets. I will try to get around to adding the U.S system beside her numbers tomorrow. ;)

    Thanks for the pics!

    I also want to throw out there that the chlorinate water doesn't harm them as long as the contact is not constant. In fact when I first got one of mine it had an eye infection and I was told that the best way to treat it was to just not put the dechlorinater in the water for a week. it went away in about 3 days... This also means that as long as you wash your hands to remove any possible chemicals from them you should be fine touching your frog. you don't need to worry about washing them in dechlorinated water.

    Hello,

    Most people won't take the time to consider washing their hands prior to holding the frogs. Some species of frog have extremely sensitive skin and the natural oils found in the human hand can actually cause issues for them. Couple that with people that don't wash their hands before handling, and the potential for problems increase.

    Informing people to not handle their frogs unless necessary helps to alleviate the chance they may contaminate or poison the frog with chemicals or debris on the hands. Most people who use care sheets are new to keeping the animal.

    Do you find the White's to be the most human-social of your frogs?

    They are indeed, however over the past year they have strangely become less. I used to open up the front doors and I would get pelted with 4 or 5 frogs at a time, now once in a while Grace wants out. I only take them out if they want out.
