What we're going to talk about now are common pet tree frogs. Now this would be something that you would gain from a pet store. There are legal concerns when you're talking about wild catching indigenous species, and so it's never recommended to capture a wild caught, or capture a frog in it's own environment, thereby wild catching it. Common types of tree frogs are the Green Tree frog, which is a pretty small version, the White's tree frog, and then Red Eye tree frogs are very popular. Now frogs, there are greater than five thousand species that exist, and so there are many, many different types of tree frogs. That's just a tip of the iceberg as far as generally the top three that you might see in pet stores. So always make sure when you're getting amphibian, especially a tree frog, that you have an aquarium or a setup first because they, they're climbers. They need vegetation to climb on, they're also semi-aquatic or live in moist environments. And so talk to your pet store or your veterinarian clinic if they deal with amphibians and get them to guide you or give you literature on how to set these guys up first. And you always want to have a setup first, and then bring them into it. These guys do not like to be handled. It is not recommended to unless you absolutely have to. They're generally for observation only, and all these guys typically are going to eat insects like crickets, wax worms, meal worms, flies, things of that sort. But always check with your pet store. Make sure you're feeding and housing a tree frog appropriately.
