:Hi Bianca,

:I don't have any experience keeping the ornates - Scaphiophryne gottlebei but we have had 3 of the marbled hoppers - S. marmorata at the pet store I work at for a few months now. They are cute little frogs. We have been keeping the 3 in a 5 gallon aquarium with a substrate of bed-a-beast, a shallow water pool and a few clumps of rocks and moss for hiding. For perminant housing you might want a larger aquarium. The temperature stays in the low 70's during the day and drops a few degrees at night. They eat crickets up to a quarter inch in size and are real pigs. They are pretty secretive so you don't get to see them much unfortunatly. The best care sheet about these frogs online can be found at http://www.amphibian.co.uk/ then click on anuran care sheets and then on Scaphiophryne. Other common names that I have seen these frogs sold under are pudge frogs, hopper frogs and madagascan burrowing toads so you might try doing a few searches online with those common names and seeing what information comes up. Good luck!
