How much does a pet frog cost


If you’re considering a pet frog, there are some things to take into account. Not only do you need to know if you’ll actually get along well with your new companion, but you’ll also have to consider the cost of getting started and keeping them happy and healthy for the rest of their lives.

Frogs are between $5 and $25

The cost of a frog depends on species, where you buy it and how much you buy. The most expensive frogs are the Pacific Golden Tree Frogs that are usually sold in pairs. These frogs can cost $30 or more each, but they are smaller than other species that are sold individually.

There is no set price for frogs because they vary by their size and coloration among other factors as well as where they were obtained from. For instance, some species may be found at pet stores while others might only be available online or over the phone. You could also purchase tadpoles which would be cheaper than adult frogs since they don’t require any accessories just yet (such as an aquarium).

Tadpoles cost under $10

For those who want to buy their froglets online, the most common option is to purchase them from a pet store. In this case, you will likely be charged anywhere from $3-10 per tadpole. If you are trying to save money on your budget and don’t mind doing some research, consider purchasing tadpoles in bulk at a local fish or aquarium store. You can expect these prices to be lower than buying them in small quantities through an online seller.

The cost of caring for tadpoles is minimal; they only require regular water changes and tank maintenance (which involves cleaning out any waste that accumulates). The only other thing they need is proper food—and if you choose the right kind of food for your new pets’ habitat, this won’t cost much either!

Tanks cost between $10 and $50, depending on size.

There are many factors that affect the price of a frog tank. The most important consideration is tank size, which is determined by three variables:

  • The size of the frog (and its species)
  • How many frogs you want to keep in your tank
  • How much space you have available for a terrarium or aquarium

Bedding costs under $20.

While you might think of a frog’s enclosure as nothing more than a bowl with some water, the truth is that it’s much more complex. This is why there are many different types of enclosures available for frogs. You’ll need to consider whether you want your frog to live in an aquarium set up or if you prefer terrariums which allow for more natural surroundings and can be aesthetically pleasing. A good rule of thumb when choosing an enclosure is based on how big your pet frog will get; since they tend to grow quickly, this will help ensure their environment will be able to accommodate them over time.

Aside from the size of their home, another important factor when choosing an enclosure is what type of bedding material should be used inside it—this depends largely on what type of species we’re talking about (not all frogs are alike), but there are several common options available: wood shavings; paper pulp; bark mulch; recycled cardboard boxes (with holes cut out); artificial turf mats; shredded coconut husks/fibers; peat moss; sphagnum mosses (varying levels of acidity); cypress mulch; cork bark slices/strips which can also come pre-packaged for convenience

Substrate can be bought in stores or online.

You can buy substrate in pet stores or online. It is used to keep the tank clean and provide a place for frogs to hide. Substrate comes in many different forms, such as sand, pebbles, or coconut fiber. If you decide to use sand, be sure not to get any which contains pesticides or fertilizers because these can hurt your frog.

Light bulbs cost around $15

In addition to food, it’s also important to buy light bulbs for your frog. You should change these on a regular basis because they have an expiration date and can burn out. Light bulb costs are usually $15. If you don’t change the light bulb often enough, your pet might not get enough light or could get burned by the hot glass of the broken bulbs in their tank.

  • The type of bulb used will depend on how much space you want between each bulb; if there is too much space between them, then they won’t provide enough light for your pet frog!
  • The size of the tank will determine how many watts need to be used by each new light fixture installed into one’s home aquarium housing system (HASH).

Other accessories cost under $50

The cost of other accessories, such as toys and food bowls, is also relatively low. A good toy will run you between $5 and $10, while a food bowl can be found for around $6. You may also have to buy a water bowl—the exact cost depends on the size of your frog. If you’re living in an apartment and worried about noise complaints from neighbors (or just want to keep things quiet), consider using a ceramic dish rather than plastic or metal ones that can clank together when they’re moved around.

You might also need treats for your pet frog once in awhile so it doesn’t get bored with its daily routine; this would run between $2-$3 per treat bag from the local pet store or home improvement store.

Finally, don’t forget about bedding! Live plants are nice but expensive—you may want to opt for artificial ones instead because those tend not to require much maintenance beyond occasional watering. The added benefit? Artificial aquarium plants look great without taking up too much space in your room (or office).

Food costs between $1 and $5 per package.

The cost of food varies depending on the type of frog you have, but it’s usually between $1 and $5 per package. For example, a small container of crickets at my local pet store costs around $4, but I was able to buy one pound of crickets online for under $10. The price difference is due in part to shipping costs and the fact that you don’t have to pay sales tax on an internet purchase.

On top of this initial investment in food supplies, you’ll also need to consider ongoing maintenance costs such as cleaning supplies (which range from free if they’re all natural ingredients like vinegar and baking soda) or more expensive items like tank liners if your frog lives indoors.

A pet frog can be an inexpensive pet, but it still has some upfront costs.

Your pet frog is an inexpensive pet. However, there are some upfront costs to consider before you bring home your new friend.

  • Tanks are the most expensive item you will need for a pet frog. These tanks vary in size and shape, with prices ranging from about $10 to $150. Also, some tanks come with accessories like lights or filters that can increase the cost of your tank purchase.
  • Bedding is the least expensive item necessary for your frog’s home because it can be reused year after year if necessary; however, you should still budget at least $5 per month for this expense if you don’t have any bedding on hand already in storage somewhere around the house (or yard).
  • Food is another significant monthly expense that can get pricey quickly—especially since frogs eat bugs and worms! You’ll want to buy enough food each week so that there’s always something fresh available for them when they’re hungry (and sometimes even when they’re not). It may seem like no big deal until you realize how much money was spent on buying all those worms and crickets! One way around this problem would be providing alternative sources of protein such as canned dog food (though this shouldn’t be done regularly).


We hope that we’ve convinced you that pet frogs are not only fun, but also affordable. With the right equipment and care, they can be a great addition to your family. Plus, if your kids get attached to their new frog, they may even think of it as an investment in their future!
