    I don't know much, but if your planning on feeding the babies you should try to master how to breed flightless fruit fly's or pinhead crickets!

    She won't lay eggs without a male. If there is a male and you want eggs, you need to build a rain chamber. If you don't want eggs, house her on her own and she'll just re-absorb them.

    Frogs aren't really "pregnant." A female will contain eggs, but they aren't fertilized until she lays them. They are not live bearing animals.

    How do you know she is with eggs? Was the store trying to breed her?

    What kind of pet store is it? Unless it is a small privately run pet store or a small business supplier, employees never come in contact with actual suppliers to receive that kind of information. I worry that you may be getting scammed for a sale.

    As for trying to breed, since I try not to let that happen, I cannot help much. I can just back up the fact that if she is with eggs, if a male is not present she will just reabsorb them for the time being. Then, if you are able to have success with breeding, beware of the needs/requirements that will absolutely have to be met for maintaining proper health, nutrition, and habitat as they mature.

    Ok, if you want to breed, you need to build a rain chamber. There is a good video on this, in the video section of the site.

    And remember, you need to quarantine ANY new herp from your current herps for a minimum of 30 days to be sure the new one is healthy and not carrying any diseases.

    Re: Pregnant Red Eyed Tree Frog

    Well, since you just got your male Red Eye Tree Frog not too long ago and you we're having a lot of husbandry issues I would recommend against getting another Red Eyed in the near future, and even more so about attempting to breed them.

    You should first gain enough exprience and knowledge about the one you have right now. Make sure it's got everyhing setup correctly. Then research on how to properly breed them, properly care for the young(as I would assume this would be MUCH more difficult than 2 adult's) and lastly make sure you have everything setup BEFORE you purchase the female.

    It may be dissapointing to hear but it's better than ending up with a mass of dead tadpoles, that is if they breed as breeding Red-Eyed's will be extremely difficult for a first time keeper.
