:::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

Wow, your a frickin idiot. A rainy season is ONE SEASON OF THE YEAR when it rains, stupid. Not misting every week. I happen to know a thing or 2 about leos and sand and paper towels are fine, but gravel and bark cause impaction. Once again, pothos is not a bush. I have been keeping frogs 9 years, and you sound like you are some 8 year old who wants his mommy to do everything. Get a life and go back to your geckos. Hahaha.....Sticks? Have you seen the size of these frogs? You a pure idiot and a disgrace to this hobby. Have a nice day loser.
