If you’ve never owned a pet frog, research your options carefully. Some species are better suited for beginner frog owners because they’re more adaptable and hardier. Frogs may not require the same level of care as a dog or cat, but they deserve a comfortable, safe life. Some larger species can live 10 years or more with the proper care, so make sure you’re prepared to make this commitment to your new pet.
