Pacific Chorus Frog (Pseudacris regilla) care & questions
Hello, I recently inherited a pacific chorus frog from a neighbor. It was wild-caught about 6 months ago and has been living in about a 1 gallon critter keeper.
I had some reservations about re-releasing it into the wild and so far have decided to keep it. I craigslisted an exo-terra habispehere and set it up in sort of a standard dart frog
style. It had been lightly modified to accept a misting system which I also have in use.
I have attached a couple photos.
This brings me to some questions:
1. Temperature. I assume it will survive in anything from about 60-100 degrees Fahrenheit and 60% humidity since that's generally what we have outside (southern CA). What is ideal though?
2. I've not read great things about the habisphere, but that seems to be mostly for groups of dart frogs. Does it seem spacious enough for a single chorus frog?
3. Water. Does this guy require any sort of water bowl? He had one in the tiny cage but so far not in the habisphere. I have the mister set up to go every day for 10 seconds. Is that enough? It seems to be enough to keep the humidity at around 70, although this might even be a bit much for the frog.
That seems to be about it for now. On the whole the frog seems happy enough. Has a few favorite spots, doesn't seem antsy or nervous and calls regularly.
Thanks in advance for all of your help.
