Green Tree Frog Care

Green Tree Frog

About

These frogs also make great pets and are equally interesting to observe and study.

Sleep Pattern

Nocturnal

Max Size

1 ½ to 2 ½ Inches

Life Span

6+ Years

Habitat

10 Gallon Tank. They enjoy lots of height so larger tanks are preferred. Many climbing materials are essential.

  • SUBSTRATE: Cypress mulch, moss, and cork bark. Keep all of these materials damp!
  • TEMPERATURE: 68-77 ˚F 24/7 is good. Under tank heating works best, be sure to monitor that this temperature doesn’t get too warm. If you have a taller tank, a 50 to 60 watt tropical heart bulb will help maintain their temperature more evenly. High humidity levels are a must to keep your frog from dehydrating – literally.

Diet

These insectivores enjoy gut load and calcium dusted crickets, daily.

Water

 Supply a fresh, clean, dependable chlorine-free water source. Mist the habitat at least once a day. You may even want to invest in a misting unit. Green Tree Frogs need shallow water as they are not good swimmers and can easily drown, very unlike most frogs.
