Help and advice on shopping for: Amphibian Livestock

Give a little Frog, Toad or Salamander a home

Amphibians are incredibly popular with animal keepers as they often combine the best of reptile and aquatic keeping. We have a massive range of Amphibians at Swell Reptiles, including Fire-bellied toads, Dart frogs and Pacman frogs, who would all love to be adopted by you.

What are Amphibians?

Amphibians are a type of animal that can live both in the water and on land. They need water to survive and are generally found at the boundary between water and land or in high-humidity environments. Frogs and Toads are the most well-known amphibians however there are a lot of other sub-classes in this group of animals including Newts and Salamanders. If you’re interested in adopting an Amphibian, you must come into our store where we will interview you and ask to see some images of the enclosure the Amphibian will be kept in before selling it to you. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of a pet to anyone we feel is ill-prepared to care for it.

Why should I buy an Amphibian?

Although they are not the cuddliest of pets, Amphibians can be very rewarding, displaying unique abilities and colouration that make them fascinating to watch. Many Amphibians present an animal keeping challenge as their enclosures need plenty of water and humidity to make them comfortable, which can lead to incredibly creative and visually interesting solutions. Amphibians generally live between 10 and 20 years depending on gender and species.

What are the main types of Amphibian?

Our Amphibians range is broken into Frogs, Toads and Salamanders, while there is no scientific distinction between Frogs and Toads, we break them down by their common names. Frogs are wet-skinned amphibians that often prefer the spend the majority of their lives close to bodies of water, with some examples even being arboreal. Toads are usually more dry-skinned amphibians that can spend more time outside of the water or in lower humidity, however, this is not always the case, for example, Fire-bellied toads are semi-aquatic and thrive in paludarium set-ups. Newts and Salamanders are characterised by longer, more lizard-like bodies, but usually have similar husbandry requirements to Frogs and Toads.

What should I look for when purchasing an Amphibian?

Frogs, toads and other Amphibians take both skill and patience to care for. Their needs can be quite particular and vary greatly from species to species. We recommend researching your new pet fully before purchasing to ensure you know exactly what they need to thrive.
