    At the petco store I work at there are two frogs who have been there for 6 months!!!!! I was thinking about buying them so they have a real home!! anyways I love frogs. I Think they are Pac Man Frogs, but I may be wrong. One of my coworkers told me they were fire bellied toads (But we have like 11 of them) so i knew it was not them. We do have two pac man frogs so i am pretty sure its them. Could i fit them in a reg 10 gallon?? or do I need bigger?? I still need to ask my parents about it, but i pretty much do what i want, now that I'm 18. Plus i am moving my fish and frogs to the basement, so if I had them down there i don't think my parents would mind. Ive read a little bit about these frogs, but I don't know too much about them. Are they the same thing as horned frogs?? because they do have these little horns on their heads. I hope i am able to adopt these two. And that i am not mistaken on which type of frog they are...
    Thanks,

    I've seen Pac Man frogs at my local LFS. They are big! I think a 20 long would make a more suitable home, just based on their size.

    Here's a care sheet I got from a web search:

    They don't move much though so the space doesn't need to be huge. Are you thinking of adopting them together? You might want to check on compatibility. They bite and are voracious. You could keep them separately though.

    I was thinking about keeping them together... I hope they would be alright like this. I could always house them separately but i would rather put them together.

    i just read that you can't really house them together... and that they can be pretty mean. Thats probably why they haven't sold...

    They can also be pretty loud. Check out some YouTube videos of these frogs so you can get an idea of what they're like:)
