Hi,

There are a few species that are commonly kept in captivity that are quite hardy, so are more suitable for beginners than some other types of amphibian.

If you are interested in keeping a frog or a toad (Anurans), then Horned Frogs (Ceratophrys cranwelli), Fire-Bellied Toads (Bombina orientalis), White’s Tree Frogs (Litoria caerulea) and most toads from the family Bufo are relatively easy to care for, whilst Fire Salamanders (S.salamandra salamandra) and Fire-Bellied Newts (Cynops pyrrhogaster) are good beginner’s choices for newt and salamander species (Caudata).

When making a decision on which type of amphibian is right for you research should play a key role in your preparations. All amphibians that can be kept in captivity should be researched extensively by both beginners and experienced keepers before they are purchased. It is always important to be 100% certain you can provide the care needs required for that species, regardless of your experience with amphibians.
