Wrong footprint too — I’ve noticed my frogs like to ‘wander’. Longer footprints give them that unbroken space to traverse without turning in circles.
Back when I was on Facebook this was sometimes an unpopular opinion and there’s always someone with a different take on it — I’m really not here to change anyone’s mind, but it’s just my opinion they’d fare better long term, and be much more entertaining to watch — in a bigger and longer footprint. Say 36” x 18” at minimum.
Totally up to you, it looks you’re doing your homework.
No, haven't bought it yet, and I was surprised nobody else brought the footprint up. I know that's a con of the build because terribilis like the larger footprint. On the other hand, they also really don't like wet feet. I'm willing to trade a couple square inches for the built in drainage and ventilation options, which will help prevent foot rot, as we discussed in my other recent thread. Plus I don't have to ff-proof it (to the extent possible).
