I posted this last year and got some great responses but never ended up committing to anything finally have some time again to consider getting into the amphibians. I'm looking for tolerant amphibians for kid shows. Absolutely love red eye tree frogs but the one I had a few years ago didn't last very long. That basically sums it up if you don't want to read the rest lol Thank you But here's the original post Would like to get a frog or toad to add to my collection for the education reptile shows that I do for schools and parties. So I need it to be able to handle a bit of stress that is envolved with frequent transport in a vehicle (packed in a small container) and the obvious stress of many children looking at it. I know that most/(maybe all amphibians) should not be handled because of how absorbant thier skin is. Is there any particular species that isn't affected/bothered by frequent handling? I never let other people handle the amphibians (just the reptiles) and only pick them up to place them one a wet plate for the audience to get a closer look at them while I brought them around. The only amphibians I've had were a Red-eyed tree frog and a gray tree frog. (not sure how old they were when I got them but they only lived 3 1/2 years from the time I had them) I probably cut thier lives short with all the attention but I think the red-eye was killed by a spider he was encased in web. don't know if spiders prey on pre-killed or not? I have very little knowledge or interest of amphibians myself. But feel it is key point in educating about reptile to show/explain the difference. Any suggestions on species for me to research that are hardy and preferably lower maintanence than red-eyed frogs.
