Green Tree Frog

Hylidae cinerea

 

 

 

Temperature

68-77F (20-25C) - room temperature

Humidity

Medium (~50%) misting once daily.

Cage Setup

Arboreal

Characteristics

Aren't all that active and are exclusively nocternal.

Geographic Location:

Native to South-Eastern United States.  Especially common in Florida, South Carolina, Arkansas, and southern Georgia.  If you can't see them, you'll hear them :)

Appearance:

Surprisingly, this is a green frog!  They are variably green colored, usually with a whitish area running from the mouth along the side. (A very small proportion do not have this.)

Lifespan:

Unknown.

Housing:

A mid sized arboreal tank is appropriate.  Plenty of climbing limbs and bushy leaves.  Having the room the cage is in at "room temperature" means no heating is necessary.

Feeding:

Main diet is crickets.  Also, moths and flies in the wild.

Notes:

This is not a very active tree frog, but doesn't take much looking after.
Males make a really loud noise that sounds a bit like quacking, which is sometimes known as a "rain call" because they tend to make a lot of noise after warm weather.
