Can I buy a poison dart frog?

Captive-bred poison dart frogs are available from breeders, at pet stores and at reptile shows. Wild-caught poison dart frogs do show up fairly regularly in the hobby, but I suggest sticking with captive-bred frogs.

Why do frogs die in pools?

They May Die in Your Pool Once frogs get into the water, they can't always get out because the pool edge is too high for them to jump to from the water, and they can't see the steps. ... They'll desperately swim around and around the pool, looking for a way to get out until they become exhausted and drown.

Can frogs lay eggs in a chlorine pool?

Chlorine can cause stinging eyes or burning skin. Frogs lay their eggs in water. Once the eggs mature they become tadpoles and eventually frogs. When you discover frog eggs in your pool it is important to remove them as soon as possible.

Is it safe to swim with tadpoles?

A swimming pool is not a very good environment for tadpoles because it probably has little for them to eat and, if chlorinated, can kill them. The best way to handle your little guests is to move them to a more suitable location as soon as you can.

Can frogs drown?

Can a frog drown? Yes, frogs have lungs like we do and if their lungs fill with water, they can drown just like us. Frogs can also breathe through their skin. ... They use their skin to absorb oxygen when underwater, but if there is not enough oxygen in the water, they will drown.
