Just like a hamster or lizard you find a cage and feed them. If you want more info go to www.animalplanet.com ^No offence, but that is misleading. Frogs require quite elaborate setups to keep them happy and healthy. A glass or quality plastic tank with a lid will be needed. It must be fairly large. A hood lamp is a must. The set up will depend on the species and its needs, but you can't just go and grab the nearest frog and shove it in a tank and chuck in a couple of insects and expect it to be happy and healthy. Food and vet costs can be quite expensive also. www.frogs.org.au has some very good information and the community there is very helpful.

No. Pet frogs have been illegal in Canada since 1976, when a newly elected Prime Minister contracted a deadly virus through the skin secretions of the pet frog of the daughter of the Mayor of Toronto.

A crab pinches and likes to hide and not be as playful , a frog is a better pet because it is more playful and doesn't pinch nor bite.

the best type of frog as a pet is a green tree frog because it is the only type of frog you can touch
