Gray Tree Frog

Hyla versicolor

 

 

 

Temperature

Room temperature.

Humidity

No more than 50%.  Occasional misting.

Cage Setup

Arboreal.

Characteristics

Quite 'shy' frogs both in the wild and in captivity.

Geographic Location:

You can find Gray Tree Frogs right across the eastern US (also a few in southern California). They stretch as far west as Nebraska and North/South Dakota and usually live in moist, deciduous woodlands. They are also found in swampy areas with thick foliage.

Appearance:

The frogs are of a medium size and despite their name can change from grey all the way to green to adapt to their environment.  Identifying features of the Gray Tree Frogs are a light colored spot with a dark edge under each eye.

Lifespan:

Unknown

Housing:

Basic arboreal setup, mid to small size.

Feeding:

Adults will eat insects such as house flies, crickets, moths,.  Though usually they are fed the regular crickets in captivity.

 

Notes:

Grey Tree Frogs are usually very hard to find in the wild, partly due to their ability to change color.  And are often 'shy' in captivity.
You can usually tell males from the females by the croaking that the males do to attract females.  Their songs are like birds.
