Hello! I have a pet cane toad, Kimbo, and I was wondering how long it took for your frogs to be comfortable around you and take food from your hand. Kim is still scared of me, despite her normal routine and plenty of food. Would handling her more help or leaving her alone be the best option?
Hello Kimbo! 😀😀
The Stickyfrogs met the hand when they were very young, but even so it did take a few months for them to become comfortable with it. I would put my hands in the tank most days, often just near them rather than touching them all the time so they became accustomed to just seeing hands. It also took some time to go from hunting crickets to taking a cricket from the tweezers to taking a cricket from the hand! Let Kimbo see your hands regularly without always picking her up, you could just put your hand in the tank near her for a few seconds every now and then, or leave your hand nearby while she’s eating.
Voigt and Gumby like her beautiful eyes! They send you both a big kissie! 🐸🐸
