    Default Pine Barrens Tree Frog

    Dear Frog Forum,

    I want a Pine Barrens Tree Frog and have wanted one for at least 10 years! pm me if you have an 'in' on one of these frogs, I would not hesitate to pay decent for one of these beautiful frogs, hoping for a clean sharp patterned green one.

    Thanks

    The only "in" on them would be an illegal source, they are endangered and protected throughout their range.

    looks like they were previously listed as endangered but are not any longer, but you are correct, it is protected in most of its habitat ranges but appears to not be protected in a few areas.

    Get Hyla arborea or H. chinensis, they are similar in appearence.

    Unfortunately they are both illegal in WA and OR. We have some strict rules on non-native temperate species in the northwest.

    Kurt, thanks for the suggestions, and damnit what a huge bummer if it is illegal to own those over here in washington.. i really love tree frogs with appearances similar to the pacific chorus frogs, all of mine are brown no matter what kind of setup i use or even if i catch them green, they always become brown over a few months (not that they dont look great brown!) so, for once i am dying to have something similar that is green, + housing a few 'non cookie cutter frogs' is always excited, and new!

    its probably so long because the pacific northwest has such great rainfall and temperate climate that it is really condusive to invasive species explosions, it rains more than its sunny here and only snows like once or twice a year.

    It's long because "somebody" is a moron and didn't do any homework. It is massive shotgunning at its worst.

    I'm in Oregon, it's dry, hot and high desert in the summer. Below zero, massive snowfall, blizzard conditions in winter. JVK

    PS The Washington list isn't as bad as our list, thus the rant, ha,ha, didn't realize you were in Washington. Now I look like a douche
    And andersonii has always been one of my obsessions. H. chinensis is a nice substitute where they are legal, cool little frogs. JVK

    They are great pets and available for next to nothing. I recently saw them on kingsnake for $1.79 each in quantity. I'm surprised WA allows them, they are one of the many species we can't have in OR.
