How do I take care of Solomon Island Leaf Frog Froglets?

After 6-8 weeks of incubation, Solomon Island Leaf Frog eggs will hatch into miniature versions of the adults. For the first 24 hours, Josh's Frogs recommends leaving newly hatched SILFs in the incubator, then rinsing any substrate off of them and moving them to a plastic container with little or no ventilation. For the first several weeks, baby Solomon Island Leaf Frogs are kept on paper towel, with some leaves for hiding places, and a handful of sphagnum moss for humidity.

Young SILFs may not eat for the first week or so of their life, as they are still feeding off of yolk. After a week, offer springtails and fruit flies. After a few weeks, try to incorporate young crickets into the diet, as well. All insects should be dusted with a quality vitamin/mineral supplement.
