    Default Got my new White's today!!

    Am so happy to report that I picked up 2 young White's tree frogs today My intention was to get just the one, but as the guy in the pet shop opened their 'container', 2 of them climbed out onto the guy's hand! I couldn't possibly choose between them, so I got the pair! One is a lovely bright green (Herbie) and one is more brown than green (Pip), they are about 3/4 inch and very pretty! My 10 yr old daughter chose the names, I wanted to name one Albert but she wouldn't let me. Grr!
    It's a shame their dinner stinks though.... *yuk*

    If you have macro mode (flower symbol) use it! and lots of lighting. Congrats on your new additions... they can be addictive

    I love him/her. I hope they live long and prosper. What are you keeping them in? If you keep everything clean it shouldn't smell that bad. Just remember to take out any dead crickets it takes away most of the smell and it also increases how long the others live.

    Thank you! At the moment they're kept in a big plastic tank, with some wood, vines and a water dish. I've got my eye on an Exo Terra Glass Terrarium (45x45x60cm) though. Maybe when they're a bit bigger I'll treat them t a new house! Complete with waterfall....

    I got mine about 3 months ago. It's an ideal pet:

    1. It does not smell.
    2. It does not annoy me.
    3. It is hardy, and requires little maintenance.
    4. Easy to feed, and entertaining to observe.

    In my experience that phrase isn't really ever true. For example rattlesnake tastes nothing like chicken.

    Wow! Thanks for the replies everyone! I PROMISE to post pics, and will try a log, when I set up my terrarium!! The froglets are way too small for it at the mo, they'd never find any food if I put them in one at the mo!!! I'm having so much fun with them, I keep getting up in the night to try and catch them eating/exploring but they're always just sitting innocently on the floor

    Again my statement was a joke.

    lol @ tastes like chicken!! I hope I never find out.... Saw frogs legs in a restaurant in Andorra, they looked pretty grim! I don't think I could ever go there!!! I'll stick to chicken, as it really DOES taste like chicken
