    Default Gray Tree Frog Growth Question

    Last summer my sisters and I raised some tadpoles and kept a few once they turned into froglets. They will be froglets for one year this August. My question is, how long does it take for them to be fully grown? They really haven't grown much over the past eight months and I don't know if that is normal or not. Also, we have been using an old fish tank to keep them in and I was wondering if it will be big enough for four adults. It is 24 inches long, 17 inches high, and 12 inches wide.

    Here are some pictures of what they look like now:

    Hi Shaymac620,

    I think the best place to start is with this care sheet.

    It's important to maintain the proper temp and humidity levels.
    Be sure the enclosure has the right temp ! , and mimics their natural temp changes throughout the 'spring'.

    Don't know where you are? But as things warm up they should grow now ! Feed them well.

    They would be more comfortable w/ more height ....better to turn/convert the tank vertically.... if you can.

    I raised my Grey Tree Frog as an egg. I have him in a 5 gallon tank and he is fine with it. Also my vet, research, and pet stores says 5 gallons per Grey Tree Frog. People harass me all the time about the size of the tank but I do 5 gallon per frog. Each frog varies on a size of a tank but for a Grey Tree Frog 5 gallons per frog. People say the taller it is the better but you can decided on that(each frog is different). Mine prefer longer tanks than taller tanks. Mine is a little bit bigger than a US dollar coin. He is 9 months old and my vet said he is half grown. I also feed my Grey Tree Frog wild caught food, use tree branches, bark, and moss. The bark, branches, and moss I rinse and scrub with hot water. Mine grew insanely fast but he has an endless supply of food in his tank. Now I have to cut back because my vet said I feed him to much.

    I know this is 4 months late, but hopefully you see it soon. Your frogs may not have grown much because you didn't dust their food with calcium and vitamin powder and this may have stunted their growth. I think this happened to mine that I raised as well. Start regularly dusting their food, and hopefully it won't get any worse. Rep-Cal is a good brand.
