    Very pretty frog.

    Assuming you live in Canada? I guess he could have hitch-hiked a ride !

    i think u guys are right, after reading on the cuban tree frog its look very similar, and change color depending on the environement. now i begin to enjoy frog hahaha i bought him a nice habitat
    here what ive found:
    These are the largest treefrogs in North America! - varying in color from dark
    green to pale gray. Will change color to match environment. May have spots that
    sometimes disappear (depending on environment) Big or little feet with the
    characteristic sticky pads on the toes

    i also tought i would buy him a friend..but after reading this..i changed my mind lol :Miscellaneous Facts:
    These frogs are notorius for cannibalism...if there are other species of
    frogs in the tank, or even specimens of the same species, Cuban Tree Frogs have
    been known to feast on their neighbors! Remember, a frog doesn't need to be
    bigger to eat another frog, just hungry!

    here a picture of hes new home, and hes guardian hahahaha

    is that fine? i never had a frog before, we rly dont know if all this setup is good, we used distilled water at the bottom with the clay, and spagnum moss on top of it...the spagnum dont touch the water directly but its keep moist, at begin i gaved him rain water in the tiny rock stuff, today i gave him bottled water, and gave him like 10 criquet witch he ate like 4 yet in 3 day. i work in the city water treatement i know the city water isnt good cuz its got chloramine, i got a well but the ph is way to high..and got to much mineral...that why i gave him rain water at begin cuz i had nothing else...now i got bottled water.and i usualy mist the tank twice a day with distilled water. anything i miss?thanks for ur advice, oh and i got a 40watt natural light, but i kinda figured that frog is nocturne....

    bottled water is your best bet, it is pure and has some important minerals. Distilled water is good for misting because minerals can build up. Make sure the moss is not loose, some kinds when swallowed can cause impaction. The tank looks fine, make sure there are high places for him to climb. you should aso get something like reptical, some calcium powder to put on crickets every once in a while (not every time)
