Unfortunately, pet stores are one of the worst places to get info on proper care of herps. I've also seen pet stores house chinese fire-bellied newts in with tropical species, mix desert and rainforest species, mislabel countless species, and generally, pet stores just don't know much (or in some even worse cases, don't care) about reptiles and amphibians. The vast majority of dwarf frogs, clawed frogs, and newts sold in pet stores do not live long. This is mostly due to improper housing on the store's part. An estimated 90% of baby green iguanas in pet stores will die in their first year of captivity simply cause they weren't cared for properly.
