Kalrissan Rottweilers, Reptiles and Amphibians

On this page, I introduce my frogs. They are very cool. Frogs need very specific set-ups and care but are very easy to look after. They are all provided fresh water every day and need UVB access. They are delightful guys and all have their own personalities. Their room is heated in winter and they love this!
The above and below frogs are Common Tree Frog (Litoria caerulea.) They are one of the biggest and are hardier than they look. Water quality is everything to a frog. Daily water changes are essential and you must use tank water so that very few chemicals are present. Frogs will absorb everything through their skin and you must handle them with gloves on or very clean and rinsed hands.
Jada is a Green Tree Frog (Litoria caerulea) and is my first frog. I have learnt a lot from him. He loves to hide in his fountain during the day but is a bundle of activity from dusk. He loves his new girlfriend.
Rymer is a Magnificent Tree Frog (Litoria splendida) and the picture below is at 8-weeks of age. They are affectionately referred to as 'Mags'.
Kobus is Rymer's sibling and was 4 mths old in this picture
Here's a shot from one of our wildlife photography days - enjoy! The frogs get on very well and will often go to events together for support to each other.
Here is a shot of Tren, the Common Tree Frog and Rymer, the Magnificent Tree Frog chilling out together. You can clearly see the differences between the two types of frog.
RED EYED TREE FROGS
Below you will see some of our Red Eye Tree Frogs (Litoria chloris) - they are a much smaller type of tree frog. The husbandry is the same for these guys. The female is in the middle and the two end frogs are both male. With a lot of the frogs, the girls are larger and do not call. They will make noise under duress, but are usually quiet. It is very noisy in the house before and after rain as the boys like to try to out-call each other!
