Pet Store frogs
- For ages 10 & up
- Will enjoy living with similar size, gentle reptiles or amphibians
- Good climbers
Green tree frogs are communal and live well together and with other similar size, gentle reptiles or amphibians like house geckos, long-tailed lizards or green anoles. If you decide to house multiple pets, watch for any aggressive or territorial behavior. They are nocturnal which means that they sleep during the day and are active at night. Tree frogs eat mostly live insects and most have adhesive disks on their feet that make them good climbers.
Things to remember
Tree frogs have sensitive skin and do not enjoy being handled very much.
Treefrogs come from a tropical environment and need a warm, humid home.
This means they sleep during the day and are active at night.
Tree frogs eat small, live insects, like "gut loaded" (feed the insects a special supplement so they have extra nutrients) crickets, mealworms or waxworms.
Since tree frogs absorb water through their skin, provide water in a shallow dish for soaking and change water daily. Also mist the surfaces inside the habitat twice a day to maintain humidity levels and to provide drinking water.
Use a 10-gallon or larger, glass terrarium with a screen lid for proper ventilation.
Line the terrarium floor with 2"-3" of coconut fiber or reptile bark bedding. Remove waste weekly and change bedding at least once a month.
