OT: New Tree Frog.

Well, After I swore I would never get another one...I got another one.

He is a white's Tree Frog, and His name is Hobbes.

I used to have 3 of them for about a year (along with a red-eye, a tomato Frog, and a chubby frog,)
But those 3 white's came down with red leg and died.
The Red-eye never ate. (a beatiful frog, but should be kept in nature.)
and the tomato frog died for seemingly no reason.

The chubby frog just refuses to die.

Pictures to come!

Congrats.

You enclosure was likely too humid.

Kept properly, they thrive in captivity, and are quite easy to breed, really. Likely you got a poor-quality import.

Kaloula are very hardy frogs and have been known to live 15 years or more.

I think my last frog tank may have been to humid, (usually between 80% and 85% humidity.) but it was also major job to clean. So it got rather dirty rather quickly with up to 5 frogs living in it at once. (what should the humidity level be?)

This time everything is easily removed and easily cleaned.

is there such a thing as captive breed red-eyes? will they eat crickets? I did some research on them after mine died a number of years ago and it seemed like they only would eat flying insects and that they may or may not take well to captivity.

anyway, the red-eye never ate. Probibly wild caught.

I love the White's though, definatly my favorite kinda frog. and the Chubby frog is also a great little critter.

For a white's? 35%-55% is good.

Yes and yes. I know three people local to me alone that produce dozens of CB RETFs yearly.

hmmm...I may be interested in a Captive Breed Red-eye....

lemmie do some research first.

By the way, my current hummidity levels are steady at right about 40% so it sounds like I am good. keeping the temprature up during these cold winter months will be a different thing. I do have a stick-on heating pad that is working real well. My White's loves it. I keep it under the glass in the "cave" and he hangs out there alot. its Warm, but not to the point where it would burn the frog.

not to hijack your thread, but could you guys that know a bit about frogs, pop over to the lounge and see if my terrarium I just put up would be suitable for a treefrog? From what I am reading, it will not be tall enough. The thread is titled "something a little different"..the item on the right is a small water feature.
