Hi I have a question, my daughter has a Bull frog
and it's skin has started peeling, and I was wondering what could
be the cause of this and what could I do about it?
The first thing I think of is that it's not getting enough moisture.
Amphibians need a lot of moisture on their skin to keep it healthy. Make
sure you spritz the cage with water daily and provide a dechlorinated water
source, such as a little pool or bowl filled up so the frog can sit in it
and keep his head above water. You can dechlorinate the water by putting
some in a clear pitcher in a windowsill with light for at least 24 hours.
Make sure that bowl of water is changed daily. To make sure it's humid
enough, you can buy a humidity meter at any pet store that sells reptile
supplies. Make sure the humidity is at at least 40%, if not higher. I hope
this helps you! Tell me if he starts to feel better!
