    Default I'd love help identifying this frog so I can create a proper habitat

    This little guy was just brought to me. He isn't native to my area (Midwest United States). He apparently stowed away in a peace lily from wherever it was grown to Minnesota. He is about an inch and a half long, slender, and brown. Any help getting him set up would be appreciated.

    This looks like a spring peeper to me which are native to your area. If the plant was grown anywhere in the United States or sat outside at a green house it's possible that's where he came from. They are a little difficult to fees in captivity as they require pretty small crickets or flightless fruit flies.

    Slightly larger than pinhead crickets would be fine and something like a nano exo terra with a reptiglo 2.0 compact light should be fine for him. Misting the enclosure once in the morning and once at night is a good idea and a shallow water dish of course.

    Definitely not a Spring Peeper. I am leaning more towards Cuban treefrog, they commonly stow away on tropical plants. Compare images here:

    Most tropical treefrogs, including Cuban, can be set up in a humid, planted vivarium. They will typically eat any live, moving insects that will fit in their mouth.
