Asian painted bullfrogs. They are cheap and EASY to care for. You can get them from Frogsgalore.net.
Hope this helps :D

Sorry if I come across as snappy or whatever, most amphibians are easy to keep, but reptiles are different, amphibians have much more delicate life, more delicate skin, can die from tapwater, need de-chlorinated.

but if you want something snazzy, a tree frog. - I have the feeling a milkfrog is for you http://ryanjordandigital.com/images/milkfrog.jpg

:O stunning little things, i may have to get one, first im gonna have to build some big shelvs in my room as im running out of space to put things, there quite expencive but i see why :flrt:, i was also looking at the newts they had on there, they look pretty cool and seem very easy to care for, would have to build my own enclosure for it tho as the need water and land, also looking at White Lipped Tree Frog (Litoria Infrafrenata) and europen green toad looks like a pretty good idea also, very pretty animals

tbh with alot of amphibians you dont need a huge tank, heat, or a uv light, so your saving on money in electricity bill and spending on the items, the mount of money you save can buy you a new amphib Lol, never thought of that before.

keeping snakes and spiders is compleeetly different from keeping amphibians. starting with something like red eyes will be very hard as you have no experience with tell tale signs of illness. i strongly advice you start with something like a whites tree frog or vietnamese gliding tree frogs.

Im jumping i the deep end with dart frogs......














































Nahhh only kidding, well i will serch up some differnt types of frogs and care sheets and if i feel i am able to care for them i shall, i know its totaly differnt, but what im trying to say is im not just some exotic pet noob, i understand amphibs are delecet creatures that there enviroment needs to be perfect for there survivle some more than others, Dont worry tho i wont start with a massivly hard frog to start with only somthing just 1 or 2 levles up from your average starter from :p

Knowing me i will fall in love with a hornd frog as i think there very pretty animals
