Default thinking of selling up

hi there everyone
thinking of selling my dart frogs and setup
as it is getting too much to take good care of the frogs now
that I am in and out of hospital a lot now
but still would like some think to have for when I am at home
what would be easy to take care of and would not mind being left for a few days to fend for itself

I don’t see what’s wrong with leaving frogs for a few days to be fair. If you have a mister on the vivarium and put enough flies in they should be fine and happy. We have a lot here but want to go away soon and know that we would need to do all this to be able to leave them! As long as they have water and food they’re good!

I mean if you want something different though that’s fair enough. I must say as I say to everyone asking about what animals to get. I love Crested Geckos haha. So easy to look after, but I feel as though they’re addictive! We have 6 adults currently, another soon possibly, 5 babies and 8 eggs. Same with frogs though! We’ve just got some Leucs and citronellas. And getting milk frogs end of the month as well as some more darts. Once you pop you can’t stop! Klemmeri are easy also! And same set up as darts, our pair is in with the citronellas. And Williamsi are great too and very pretty! Maybe a chameleon? Think it just depends on what sort of amphibian/reptile you’re after? There’s so many. Too many too choose from! If I had my way I’d have a tree monitor haha.

Will it be a good idea to left a pet alone for a few days?
I usually ask friends and relatives to look after my pets.

ok many thanks for the helpful info
but I am not speaking about a few days for them to be left to defend for themselves
it's week at a time or could be a month at a time
so got to do something so they are ok and get the care they need
but thanks once again

Oh right, above you put a few days, so that’s why I said they’d be ok!
Then no, unfortunately there isn’t anything that can go that long. We have so many types of animals here and I don’t see a way that I could leave any of them for up to a month alone. Possibly the shrimp haha. So if you can get someone to care for them that’s your best bet x

Jumping spiders are amazing. You can train them to jump and attack on command haha. My boyfriend brought one back one day trying to be sneaky as I hate spiders but she has the cutest face and fluffy legs lol. She has her own bio viv haha.
