Tree Frog Species Care Sheets
Cuban Tree Frog
It was introduced to and is now well established in South Florida.
These are the largest tree frogs in North America! - they vary a lot
in color. These include gray, brown or yellow-green, some with speckled
areas. They can change color to match their environment, as well
as varying the patterning on their skin. Like all tree frogs they
have the usual "sticky pads" on their toes.
Can be 5 years or longer.
These are a larger species of frog and so require a large cage both in ground area and in height for climbing. The seem to thrive in captivity when given a moderate amount of care and are excellent as a beginner species as they are much hardier than many species. Provide plenty of branches and bushy plants.
Try not to over-feed your Cuban Tree Frog. Adult Cuban Tree Frogs may
be fed once about every two to three days. Over-feeding can cause them
to become obese and in some extreme cases, they can become so overweight
that their supratympanic ridges cover the frogs eyes. (The supratympanic
ridges are the area above the eardrum and eye of the frog.)
