These are quite delicate frogs and not suited to beginners.  They love to live in colonies.
They are unusual in the frog world, because they have coordinated hands and feet. For which reason they are also called monkey frogs. They may venture down to the ground for feeding. Red Eyed Tree Frogs are nocturnal frogs but can be observed like many species in low light conditions
