Chubby Frog Care Sheet

 
Description: The Chubby Frog has a large body which appears bloated, this is where it gets its name from.
Scientific Name: Kaloula pulchra
Average Size: 3 to 4 inches
Origin: Southeast Asia
 

Feeding

Chubby Frogs love to eat their insects. Provide them with a good variety including crickets, mealworms, moths, earthworms and even grasshoppers. Variety is very important to ensure that the frog is getting the wide range of vitamins and nutrients that it needs to stay healthy and avoid diseases.

Chubby Frogs will drink water from a dish. For this reason they should have a shallow water dish in their enclosure. This will also help to keep the humidity high.

 

Habitat

Humidity: The humidity level of a Chubby Frogs enclosure will need to remain relatively high. Misting the enclosure numerous times per day will help to obtain this humidity level.
   
Physical Design: Since the Chubby Frog likes to hide throughout most of the day you will need to provide it plenty of hiding places.
   
Substrate: As mentioned above the Chubby Frog likes to hide, it also likes to burry itself in the ground. For this reason you should use potting soil or peat moss so that it can dig in its substrate easily.
   
Temperature: 80 degrees F seems to be the recommended daytime temperature for a Chubby Frog. At night the temperature can safely drop by 10 to 15 degrees F.
