green tree frog

So we decided to not get mice which isnt fun but after thinking about it im ok with the idea, but hubby is trying to so hard to convince me for a green tree frog, which is ok with me, provided the new apartments allow them, but iv never owned frogs before, does anyone on here a green tree frog and if so any ideas what they need, iv been reading about them but i need someone with experience

Yes, they should have a tall enclosure since they climb and don't spend much time at the bottom . Simply turning a regular aquarium on its side can work. No matter which enclosure you choose, though, make sure you can keep the inside humid.

Are you sure it said bloodworms? I'm not sure how you'd even feed those, they're aquatic. Maybe in a water dish? Anyways, I fed my frog the following: crickets (staple), silkworms, phoenix worms, fruit flies (when I had extra from keeping my dart frog), and the occasional earth worm. I think that's it. Make sure the crickets are gut-loaded and dusted (let me know if you need more info, I can't remember if you've kept reptiles or amphibians before).

Hmm, that's wierd about the bloodworms. My ACF eats those... Maybe they were thinking of the wrong kind of frog? LOL


Froggies are so cute! You need to post pics if/when you get one!

That's too small but something similar (but like twice the size) would be fine.

I think that depends on what species you are referring to. "Green tree frog" is a pretty generic common name that I have seen applied to several, very different frogs. That enclosure would be fine if it is a Hyla cinerea, but you'd probably want to go bigger if you're talking about Litoria caerulea.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
