You know it cost alot for initial setup of an amphibian. You need a very tall tank for a whites dumpy. Also did you know they can live at least 15 years? Thats a big commitment. I hope you think about it before you decide.
I actually have been doing research for the past 2 days for about 4 hours each day.
~I have found that a good size tank for the white's tree frog is about a 10 gallon tank.
~IN the wild they live somewhat of a short life but in captivity they can live up to 15 years. Some even to 20.
~They will eat anything moving and anything that fits in their mouth which includes worms and aren't very picky.
~They are not that active but can easily climb.
~They don't like too much handleing but like some.
~They are a night frog and like humid warm enviornments ( not under 70degrees ) they need water in the habitat but if they are young not too much ( not over the head ) because they can drown.
~The water needs to sit out for at least 48 hours before a put it in the tank and i have to change the water every 2 days.
~I'm not against crickets but would prefer not to use them because my mom doesn't want some gettting around the house. We have enough in the summer lol.
I love animals and haven't had a frog and think they are just soooooo cute! When I was littler I would go to see my family in Maine and catch Northeren Frogs but would never think of keeping a wild born one. Those are cute too. I would watch them for a day then set them free.
I saw the picture of the white's tree frog and loved it. ( it was so fat / most seem to be
And I'm not just getting it because they said i should i just need some ideas
I know they can be very hard to take care of and i need like a begginers frog
I would really love not to kill it!!!! One time my sister didn't see a frog and steped on it and killed it... she only felt bad for like 2 days I would be scared for life!!!!!! I killed a wasp that was aready hurt because it stung my dog and i feel bad
lol my dad makes fun of me about that one. ( i really cryed )
~ Well just thought I'd let you know so you didn't think I was just getting a frog for the fun of it
