    Question How to properly pick up my white tree frog without hurting her

    Hello! I’ve just recently purchased a cute white tree frog (her name is Goblin). I did all my research months before hand and got everything needed before I got her. I know you’re not supposed to pick them up a lot but sometimes she’s in her water bowl when I need to clean/change the water and I need to handle her for a few seconds. What I’ve been doing is sort of inching my hand under her back legs but I am wondering if there is a better way of doing so? There’s not really any answers online so please help me !

    Hi! Welcome to Frog Forum!

    i pick up my frogs by simply scooping them up gently from the front, they will automatically climb on and usually allow you to transport them to wherever. Most White’s are very tolerant of handling and won’t frantically hop away.

    I use a 16 oz deli cup. I hold the cup over and in front of the frog then gently nudge it in from behind. Doing it this way avoids any unwanted leaps to freedom so to speak. I put the cup back in the enclosure and allow the frog to come out on it’s own.
