    Default Care sheet:green tree frog (hyla cinerea)

    This is a very hardy and common frog for beginners for frogs or tree frogs in general. There isn't a care sheet on this site

    Default Re: Care sheet:green tree frog (hyla cinerea)

    Hyla cinera is in the family of Hylidae or common tree frogs along with many others
    and get around one to two inches in size and exceptionally rare three inch frogs have been found

    AGTFs or hyla cinera require a 5 gallon for a single frog or a 10 gallon for a pair, these are active
    frogs and will hop around most at night. Provide plants and branches to climb and hide on

    Keep a medium water bowl in the cage, these frogs live near large bodies of water and remember
    to use dechlorinated water, i like to keep my Hyla cinera with a separate water area

    Hyla cinera will eat small to medium sized gutloaded crickets with additional calcium powder

    Heating, Light, Humidity
    these frogs like to stay in the low to high 70s and a heat lamp is usually not nessecary, A UVB light can be provided for lighting or a UTH heat pad on the Side of the tank, never the bottom. these frogs like medium to high humidity
