Tree Frog Question
I recently bought an anole and have it housed in a 10g tank. I've got reptile bark substrate, a small water dish, some plants and sticks for him to climb around on, a UV strip light, a basking light placed over a rock at one end of the tank and another flat rock at the cool end of the tank. I feed him small crickets and regularly mist the tank with water.
I've had my windows open since the sun went down, and I looked over at my window to see a small frog clinging to the window screen! I ran outside and snagged him. The anoles at the store were kept with some exotic looking tree frogs and this little guy is about half again as big as the anole's head, so I figured it would be ok.
So...is there any special care I need to consider for this little guy? Some of the feeder crickets I use look small enough for the frog to eat. Does he need water to swim in? The water dish in the tank is pretty small.
If this is a bad idea, I can always set him free out back.
