Can you put a tree frog with a crested gecko? This is a question that many new reptile owners are asking. The answer, unfortunately, is no. While both of these animals make great pets, they require very different care. In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between tree frogs and crested geckos, and why you should not put them together in the same tank.
Can you put a tree frog with a crested gecko?
One of the main reasons why you cannot put a tree frog with a crested gecko is because of their diets. Tree frogs are insectivores and need to eat live insects in order to survive. Crested geckos, on the other hand, are omnivores and can eat both live insects and vegetables. If you try to feed your crestie insects that have been killed, they will likely refuse to eat them. This can lead to malnutrition and other health problems.
Another reason why you cannot put these two animals together is because of their housing requirements. Tree frogs need a tank that is taller than it is wide, with plenty of places to climb and hide. Crested geckos, on the other hand, do best in a tank that is wider than it is tall, with lots of hiding places close to the ground. If you try to put a tree frog in a crestie tank, or vice versa, the animal will not be able to properly thermoregulate and could become sick or even die.
10 reasons why a tree frog and a crested gecko can not live together.
-Tree frog diet consists of live insects while crested geckos can eat both live and dead insects
-Crested geckos need a tank that is wider than it is tall while tree frogs need a tank that is taller than it is wide
– Tree frogs require more humidity than crested geckos (30%-80% RH for tree frogs, vs. 50%-70% RH for cresties)
– Crested geckos like to stick to surfaces while tree frogs do not; this will lead to the crested gecko being stressed out if they cannot climb surfaces in their tank
– Tree frog skin needs moisture to stay healthy; putting them in a drier environment like a crestie tank will cause them to lose their skin and can lead to death
– The UVB lighting that is necessary for tree frogs is not necessary for crested geckos; over time, this could lead to the tree frog becoming Vitamin D deficient
– Tree frogs make more noise than cresties and may stress out the crested gecko with their constant chirping
– Both animals require different temperatures: 72-82 degrees Fahrenheit for tree frogs and 78-88 degrees Fahrenheit for cresties
– If you put a male and female of each species together in one tank, they will likely breed and you will have unwanted babies to deal with!
It is best not to try to put a tree frog and a crested gecko together in the same tank. They have different dietary and housing needs, and trying to mix them can be dangerous for both animals. If you are interested in owning one of each of these species, it is best to set up two separate tanks and provide the appropriate environment for each animal.
Q: Can I put a tree frog and a crested gecko together in the same tank?
A: No, these animals require different diets and housing environments in order to survive. If you try to mix them, the animal may become sick or die.
Q: Why can’t I just feed my crestie dead insects?
A: Crested geckos need live insects in order to get the nutrients they need to thrive. If you only feed them dead insects, they will likely become malnourished.
Q: What should I do if I already have a tree frog and a crested gecko living together in one tank?
A: You should separate the animals into two different tanks as soon as possible. They require different diets and housing environments in order to survive and will be very unhappy if forced to share a tank.
Q: What is the difference between the diet of a tree frog and a crested gecko?
A: Tree frogs are insectivores, meaning they eat live insects. Crested geckos are omnivores, which means they can eat both live insects and vegetables.
Q: Why do I need to provide UVB lighting for my tree frog?
A: Tree frogs need UVB lighting in order to synthesize Vitamin D. If you don’t provide it, the frog may become Vitamin D deficient over time.
Q: What temperature should I keep my tree frog at?
A: Tree frogs should be kept at 72-82 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures outside of this range can be dangerous for the animal.
Q: What temperature should I keep my crested gecko at?
A: Crested geckos should be kept at 78-88 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures outside of this range can be dangerous for the animal.
Q: Will putting a male and female of each species together in one tank result in babies?
A: Yes, if you put a male and female of each species together in one tank they will likely breed and you will have unwanted babies to deal with! It is best to avoid this by keeping them in separate tanks. . .
