What to do if you lost a frog, a toad or a salamander.
Lost a salamander, a frog or a newt? Do not panic and follow our advices on how to find the amphibian as quickly as possible, as the missing amphibian can be in danger because of its cold-blooded nature, and could be dangerous to others (if, for example, a poisonous frog has been lost). Hypothermia and dehydration can be lethal for lost amphibians, depending on the environmental conditions.
If you have lost a newt, a frog or a salamander because of an unlocked cage or terrarium within your apartment or house - there are no reasons to worry much while the amphibian stays inside.
- Moving around cautiously and carefully watch your steps - two main things that you need to keep in mind. Open and close the doors and move furniture while searching for an amphibians very carefully to not crush the amphibian with careless movement. Close all exits from the room so that the amphibian search is localized by the boundaries of your house or apartment.
- If you have other animals or children in the house, keep them under full control or ask relatives or friends about it. In this situation, depending on the type of the amphibian lost, kids or other pets may be dangerous for it, or it can be dangerous for them.
- Again, because of the cold blood, the most probable spots that the amphibian will sooner or later seek for are any heat emitters, such as radiators, ovens and stoves, fridge compressors, bright lamps, etc.
- Experts recommend placing thermal or edible bait in each room. Heaters or table lamps can be used as heat baits. You may also make a good bait from favorite foods of the lost amphibian, such as fruits or fodder insects placed in ventilated containers. Regularly, at least once an hour, check all your baits and remember their condition.
If the amphibian is lost outside of a house and you think that it is well adapted to the life outside - that would be much more difficult.
- First of all, you need to let as many people as possible to know about the loss of the amphibian. Map-based online pet search services, such as Petrieve, are a really good fit for this task. With our help you can not only submit an absolutely free classified about the lost amphibian, indicating all its traits and the place where you've lost the pet. Moreover, you can use your pet's profile to share it on social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) and print a flyer about the missing amphibian. Additionally, you can receive notifications if someone has found a amphibian that is similar to yours. In addition to online services, consider to use television and newspapers.
- Let neighbors and passers-by know about your lost pet and ask for permission to inspect their territory and buildings. Talk to the dog and cat owners - maybe when they were walking they saw the lost amphibian in the neighborhood.
- Sometimes it would be reasonable to report to local law enforcement offices, animal shelters or pounds, veterinary clinics, pet shops and other organisations of this kind. Here you will also need some flyers and posters to hand them out.
