::Waxy Monkey Tree Frogs need the same living conditions as a leopard gecko. Dry air with a basking spot of around 90 degrees. WMTF's are not a tropical species. Were the frogs Waxy Monkey Tree Frogs?
::Either way, I would never put them together!!
:uggh.....once again. No they don't have the same enviroment. Waxys do need that temperature and dryer air, but they also have rainy season and need a cooler side of the tank away from the heat. Waxys live in an area in south america....around paraguay called the gran chaco. This area is semi-tropical, semi-desert. It has large trees, shrubs, etc. And waxys don't need sand like leo geckos.
Leopard Gecko's don't NEED sand, that is totally incorrect!! I've been keeping them longer then tree frogs. They are a very hardy species, you can use paper towels, bark, large gravel, anything that is safe. And they also need a temp. gradient with a cool side of the tank down to anywhere from 70 to 80 degrees. Just like a waxy!! Also, if your keeping leopard geckos with out a humid hide, it is recommendend to spray the enclosure a few times a week. (helps the shed process) You want a rainy season? Mist more often, duhh!!
I'm not saying mixing these species should be done in any aspect, just that you could have an enclosure set up one way (the way I am describing) and it would suffice for both animals.
haha- you want shrubs or something? throw in a pothos- which would work with both
you want branches- throw in some sticks, haha- which would work for both
this isn't brain surgery ppl- grow some common sense it will help you in the long run
