Why would you not choose a tank design and form factor that support the majority of where they spend their time? Should I invest all the time and money in a super tall enclosure for frogs that will use it maybe 5% of their lives? I think it's a perfectly valid strategy to build tanks with the most common habits of the frogs in mind. That's the way I do all of my tanks. I wouldn't waste a 36" tall enclosure on my Terribs. It just isn't worth it. I will invest that money and space in a species that takes more advantage of it. If I had the money and space, all of my frogs would be in 36x18x36 tanks or larger. That's not my reality, though, so I make what I feel are appropriate compromises.
haha, I totaly understand what your are saying tho. I am just not as good with words and the English language as you are.
I 100% agree with you saying that most frogs don't need a very huge tank, but all the tanks should be designed for the individual behavior and needs of a specific type of frog. When we accomplish that, you we see the frogs all over the tank and or space that they are given and they can use. Even terribilis
