    Default How to ID? Grey tree frog?



    He/she decided water wasn't needed anymore today.



    My step son brought a cup full of eggs home after we found them (and tons of tadpoles) in a large pool that was about to be drained that had filled partially with rain water. We also found seven grey tree frogs stuck inside.

    Out of a bunch only three are left and this guy is well ahead of them developmentally. He's very small and I have a few questions. I believe lack of proper nutrition or small space forced them to cannibalize themselves.

    1) could this be a grey tree frog?

    2) now that it's out of the water do I need to keep it in a water/land environment now or can it go into a terrarium with lots of humidity and no standing water? (Except a water dish).

    3) I assume it needs to start eating fruit flys?

    It could be a grey. Hard to tell from the picture, but it's sort of splotchy and those may be pads on its toes. It shouldn't start eating fruit flies until its tail has disappeared. It might be a good idea to dust the flies with some kind of reptile multivitamin.

    Also now that it's out of water it should do fine in a tank with a water bowl. I don't have the care sheet in front of me so take this with a grain of salt, but 50%-70% humidity should be a good range.

    He's completely out of the water now and most definitely has pads on his feed and can climb a plastic container.

    I have soaked paper towels on the bottom now with a water fish. I am going to pick up a small live plant for it tomorrow and some fruit flies.

    His tail is just barely there so I'd say it's about ready.

    It's now turning grey so I assume it's safe to say it's a grey tree frog.

    Did it go through a bright green stage?

    Can you post a picture? (There's really only two things it could be- Gray or Spring Peeper- but it would be pretty obvious if it was a peeper.)

    Even though that's a bad picture, you can tell it's definitely a gray by the white spot under the eye.

    Yea he's hard to get a picture of and I'm trying not to stress him out. He's only been a frog for a few days now.

    He's also really hard to find in his cage most of the time.

    Yea they came from the same clump of eggs. There is one tadpole left still but it's still really small.

    I probably started off with 40 or so but I didn't have enough protein in their diets and I believe they cannibalized each other.
