    Default Green Tree Frog Missing

    Hello fellow froggers!
    I am brand new to the world of frogs and have a question. We purchased 2 young green tree frogs yesterday and put them in their enclosure. This morning there was only one frog in the tank. I did put a mesh wire lid on the top of the tank and weighted it down before we went to bed. We couldn't find the frog in the substrate or under the log hide. Is it possible that the tank mate ate him? Or could he somehow have pushed up the lid to escape? Not sure what these little guys are capable of.

    Nevermind!! Hops emerged this morning from his hiding spot under the moss!! I guess he went into deep cover while he acclimated to the tank. I swear I searched the whole tank and substrate....

    Good! I was about to say that frogs are very good at hiding and being motionless and unless one frog is bigger than the other, it's unlikely he was eaten by a tankmate
