The FrogPets.com website was created in early 2018 as a free resource for frog enthusiasts everywhere. Since its creation, more and more content has been added and we continue to work on it to this day.
My name is John Wellington and I’m the creator of this website. At the start it was just me. Now we have two other contributors. Their names are Tara and Roger.
Why I created FrogPets.com
I’ve always loved reptiles and amphibians. I remember catching and playing with frogs when I was little. I loved trying to catch bullfrogs although I rarely got my hands on one.
Fast forward a couple decades and I had my first child. He’s still young now (at the time of writing this) and fascinated with frogs just like I was. Because of this, I decided to get him some pet frogs.
I began researching which frogs to get and how to care of them. One thing I noticed was an incredible lack of quality information regarding the subject. Certain reptiles (the popular ones) had a wealth of information available but its was all over the place. One “expert” says to do one thing while the next says to do another.
And that’s for popular reptiles. I wanted frogs – amphibians. The information for these guys was even more difficult to find.
I went to forums looking for information from people who’ve actually owned the species I wanted. After what seemed like a monumental task, I was confident I had the knowledge to care for two Red-Eyed Tree Frogs.
Frogs are delicate and require attention to details. It’s not too hard though. You just need a good understanding of their needs. Proper water quality, temperature, humidity, and the right food.
That’s the reason for this website. I’ve done my best to give you all the information you need in one place. I don’t want you to have to piece things together like I did.
The Future of the Website
Now that you know the back-story on the site, I’d like to tell you about our plans for the future.
Here are a few things we have coming soon:
- Dart Frog and Dump Tree Frog care guides
- Raising Tadpoles Section
- Q&A Section or Community Forum
For the immediate future, me and the other contributors will continue to make helpful content. We plan to add the care guides for poison-dart frogs and dumpy tree frogs.
Next is a tadpoles section. It’s an important topic with lots to talk about. I’ll share my experience and be as helpful as possible.
Last but not least, a community forum would be great. A forum or possibly a question & answer section. We have a commenting system now which works great but something a little more robust would be helpful.
This would allow people to ask questions and get help from a community of frog lovers.

Take the thermometer/hygrometer review page for example. I actually bought those 5 products and spent a lot of time testing them, taking pictures, and reviewing them. The advertisements helped pay for that!
We’ve done our best to balance the amount of Ads on the page. If you feel they’re too much, please let us know on our contact page.
As for Amazon, well, we receive a small commission on the products we recommend. This comes at no extra cost to you. And our recommendations are not influenced by this. Amazon happens to be a popular shopping website where most of these pet/terrarium products can be found.
In the near future we are going to expand our recommended products to include Chewy and Walmart! By all means, don’t forget about your local pet store!
Our goal is to help. When we recommend a product its because we like it and we think you will too. And when you purchase an item we recommend on amazon, you’re helping us. At no extra cost to you!
