Frogs climbing tank

Postby Kristyy » Mon Mar 19, 2012 9:24 am

Mine go crazy at night, all 4 will spend hrs and hrs climbing the sides of the terrarium. Is that normal??
I know they are nocturnal and active at night, but thought they'd move around terrarium more, not just all over the glass all night.

Mine do the same, up and down, side to side, up and belly flop into the water.

As long as it's normal
Just making sure it wasn't something I'm not doing.
I only feed them every second night.

Hey Kristyy,

Exactly the same with mine.

Their daily routine is like this... At night, when the lights go off, they usually spend quite a while going up and down like crazy on the glass and then the jump into the water (sometimes from high up - my tank is 90cm high). They swim a little bit (they even go deep in the water) and then they start climbing again.

I don't feel bad as I see that they seem to love it.

During the day, some of them bask quietly on a leaf near the lamp, while others are quite happy jumping sporadically around the the bottom of the tank or sitting on rocks by the stream. I have created a sheltered undercover area for them and they seem to like that too!. I think they just take turns... :-)

So glad it's normal.
Tonight they are quiet but they had a big feed tonight (had some dead crickets so fed them the rest of the alive ones)
Also cleaned out terrarium this avo so it's all clean and nice and I changed it a bit, gave them a swimming area with smaller rocks.
