Hi Ann
Here is my GTF Tank.The tank is 820 x 500 x 500 (H x L x W)

The Red eyes Tree frogs are in one 2ft tank soon to be moved in to a
500 x 600 x 400 (H x L x W) tank

Dwarf Tree frogs and Dainty Tree Frog are in a 2ft tank soon to be moved in to two 500 x 400 x 400 (H x L x W) tanks. One for the Dwarfs and one for Dainty.

I just have to finish making them.

Hello, this is my first Post.

We saved a frog from a box of bananas at a Woolworths store. Spent a few $$$ setting up my 3' Fish tank to house "it"
We called it Frogger. No idea was sex it is though. Might be a froggerette.

Lately it has been croaking its head off, very very loudly.
Here is a picture when we first got "it". "It" was lovely and green. A current one, "it" is now brown, eats heaps and heaps of crickets. A container of medium sized ones from Pet Paradise lasts about a week and a half.
Going to try some sort of wood boarer cockroach. Maybe.

Thanks heaps for that info, Any ideas why it's turned brown? Also what else can we feed it? The roaches i mentioned are pretty big, it goes crazy with the crickets.
Should we feed it everyday?

If you get yourself a license from national parks, FATS will let you keep the frog as a lost frog (through our lost frog service) but you will need the license and to let FATS know about the frog.

Here is a care sheet for infrafrenata:

http://frogs.org.au/arc/caresheets.html

Oh and they commonly go brown, I believe it is do with reflection of heat or u.v, as my boy loves to sit right under the light but goes brown as the day goes on, but if I move him from the light he returns back to green.

Tree frogs

Postby den » Tue Feb 26, 2008 11:53 pm

Here are a few most recent pics of my two tree frogs in their refurbished home. They have turned the most beautiful green colours since I leave the light on during the day, and they seem to like sitting/climbing on their new plants... they also like to flatten/squash them too lol :D

Thanks heaps everyone here for all the advice, much appreciated.

Hi everyone, I took some pictures of one of my baby Northern GTF today. He is my biggest one and he tries to steal all the crickets before any of his 3 friends get any so i have to seperate them. He is a real fatty compared to my other 3, hence the name. Tubby. I hope its a boy hehe i am not sure, i wont for awhile probably. Ill just have to change it if its a girl lol. So anyway I thought i woud post them on here for everyone to have a look. Let me know what you think :D

Is that a Red Eye in with the GTF?

How's that working out?

I keep Red Eye's and Dainty's together, but have the GTF's seperate as i was worried there would be issues with some one being eaten by someone else.

The pics above from Cobi_C (my wife) are our little family.

congratulations :) my 2 yr old son absolutely adores our frogs - he calls them "ROAKS" b/c that the noise they make! feeding time is so funny, he sees me getting the crickets ready and he comes and grabs my legs and pulls me to the tank shouting "ROAK ROAK" then laughs and laughs when the frogs jump around trying to catch the crickets :)
