Every year I go on holidays to a place swarming with wild frogs, I won't say where. I like to catch them in fishing nets and keep them in a see through box for about a week before letting them free. What I do is make a habitat in the box for them. First I put in some water, not to much (try to keep it above their heads, frogs CAN drown), and then some rocks for them to stand on. Next go outside and get some moss from under rocks, put it on the rocks and in the water ( the frogs seem to like hiding under it.). If you want you can the add some twigs or leaves. Feed large ones grasshoppers, and small ones eat worms and small grasshoppers. To find frogs look in damp areas with long grass.

Put it in a tank with rocks and a little bit of water in the bottom and put lots of grass and wild plants and catch bugs or buy them and put them in there too... Make sure to have a lid on it though.. You have to make it seem as much like the outside as you can

I just caught a tree frog, that's a little baby, and it's just learning how to use it's legs. My step dad used to have frogs, and we would go to the pet store and buy them crickets, and that's what they ate as their food. Make sure there's some water, either in a little bowl, or just on the bottom of the tank. Also make sure that there is a lid to the top of the tank... One that's netted so that the frog can get oxygen into the tank. :] Hopefully this helps, I don't know for sure if this is everything that you need to keep it alive, but I guys it's a start. If I were you, I would call a pet store, and ask them what to do. Good luck! -Kiersten.

Brown/ Green baby tree frogs- Like only water droplets or dew you would see on grass leaves plants etc.If its wild and you just want to keep it close to home where you can find it again, Put it where its moist, tall grass and not a lot of sun. ( A little is ok) Also, near a lot of small crickets.They usually only eat at night, so you don't need to try and force them to eat during the day.

You keep it like it is in its own habitat. Like, to feed it live insects, and keep it in a damp area.

When I was little, before I had my first hamster, I would catch anoles, toads, and snails. Anoles and toads can eat crickets and mealworms, that you buy at the pet store. How large the habitat is depends on how long you're keeping it. Pet store employees can advise you on what to put in the habitat.

First if the frog is wild you probably shouldn't keep it. But if you buy a frog from a store then you can keep it in a tank or aquarium with air holes, a damp area with a little pond, and some dry area too. Make it seem as much like the outside as you can.
