    I believe it's a Pickerel Frog. I think it is also a female!

    Could you post a full-body photo of the frog?

    Is this the frog you caught?

    Yes, this is the one I've caught. She's has been eating a single cricket a day. The cricket size is a little smaller than her, and see does eat'em.

    And for a better picture, that's has to wait. My mom will not help me upload it to my website, and if I had a computer instead of a stupid Nintendo DSi, I've would have already uploaded and posted a better one two days ago...

    So she is eating now?

    Yes, because the crickets are disappering, and I sometimes see a couple of legs sticking out of mouth and see her swallow the rest.

    That's good! So do you have her enclosure set up so all her needs are met?

    That! I'm not sure. She has a big enough container for her size for now. She does have a lamp so I may see her, but it isn't a UVB. And, see has lot's of water and some land. The water is deep enough for complete submerge. And the temperature is estimately 75-85 Farenheight. Is this good? Also, natural sunlight does get through my window top.

    Remember, sunlight's UVB is filtered when it passes through glass, plastic, etc.

    That sounds right to me, but I'm not a frog expert. Try reading this

    One more question,

    would loud music scare a frog?

  11. ToriH

    Hmmm... That is a good question. I know my lizards could, and I know snakes sense vibrations.

    Maybe a frog person will come by later.

    Just if you do play music around her, make sure it isn't too loud!

    Maybe that's why see hides in the corner all day. I do have a pretty load system with deep bass that viberates everything... Is that too bad?
  13. ToriH

    ToriH Elite Member

    Yeah... I think that would be bad. Most animals don't like the bass because it hurts their ears.

    I guess I shall either move her or turn LOUDNESS off...

    Thanks for all of your help!
    I will either post here or shoot you a PM when I have a question!

    You still haven't said how big your "container" is. How are you measuring the temperatures? What do you have for substrate? Are you dechlorinating your water? Is it filtered?

    That is NOT a pickeral frog according to your photos.
