Dr. Harry Says: As we become more pushed for time and space, there has been a rise in the popularity of small, more unusual pets like frogs, scorpions (my least favourite) and hermit crabs. As with all pets, it’s important to know how to care for these little fellas correctly. Keep your frog in a terrarium – if you’d like a green tree frog, you may need to have a licence. Best in twos or threes, frogs need moisture (as they absorb fluid through their skins). Don’t handle frogs too often and keep their ‘homes’ clean. The easiest scorpions to keep are the forest species. House them in a tank with a suitable substrate and feed them with forceps. For hermit crabs, you need a glass tank with a deep substrate for burrowing, fresh and salt water, fruit and fish flakes, and a never-ending supply of spare shells – they swap these as they grow.
