Naming two western green tree frogs - Litoria Moorei

Postby Thomsono1912 » Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:28 pm

Hey Guys,

I got my licence yesterday and managed to get a hold of two pretty little western green tree frogs. The guy said we have boasting rights because people usually have the northern ones - so what better place to boast than this forum.

We are having trouble coming up with decent names for them. Not 100% sure but pretty sure the greener one is male and the other browner one is female - although they change colour quite a lot. We'd like to give them two names that go together, possibly related to Western Australia.

You help on this matter would be very appreciated, any other information you can give us on caring for them would also be good.

Thanks,

Oscar :roll:

You could pick a town name possibly or shorten one ??

We recently bought 4 gtf's and was totally inspired to go through with it after our recent trip to Nth Qld and my friendly encounter with one at my brothers.
His street was Renwick so we called one Renwick (we nicknamed him Renny)
We called one Emerald as it was a town we stopped in twice. We called one Mena as we loved Paronella Park in Mena Creek and loved feeding the turtles and fish there and the other we called Nelly after Nelly Bay at Magnetic Island that we went to.



By the way they are so cute

Thanks for your advice guys! However, I think at the moment we are teetering towards Hugo for the male and Milly for the female... not set on it yet though.

great names, they are lovely looking frogs and I would think quite a rare species to have as pets!
