    Default White's Tree Frog help! (Sleeping in Water Dish)

    My male White Tree frog has started sleeping in a water dish ever since I introduced the new Lady. Anyway he's smaller than her (Roughly 1 inch difference) she's about 3.5 inches and he's about 2.5 inches. Do you think this is the problem?

    I see them hang out at night, they sit right next to each other sometimes, and sometimes chill on the vine staring at each other.

    Anyway they eat fine and move around fine at night, but I always find him sleeping inside of the water dish. Should I let him continue to sleep in the dish or should I be pulling him out? Any suggestions/ideas what I need to do?

    Thanks for the help!

    Im no expert but my whites tree frogs do the same thing sometimes and i think its because the humidity goes down during the day because of the heat light and the just want to be hydrated. I think you should leave the frog in there if the humidity wont stay up. Hope i helped

    My female hangs out for hours in the water dish, frog just being frog.

    As long as the water is frog acceptable (i.e. dechlorinated tap), think it should be no cause of alarm . Did you quarantine the female and got negative fecals on both frogs before placing together?
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​
