We're going to talk about care of the Green Tree frog. Now this can be a legal issue, in some states, they will not allow you to keep any indigenous species unless it's captive bred. And so if you're catching one of these things, check first before you do that. Any wild caught species is not typically recommended, for legal issues and for just for the health sake of these frogs. And so the Green Tree frog is a very common frog in the southeast United States. It gets it's name being green obviously, and a tree frog because it does like to hang out by ponds but in trees speci...specifically. They're green with a long flashy white stripe. Usually it goes along the mouth and along the side. These guys grow anywhere from, into adulthood from one and a half to two and a half inches long. They're insectivores. Generally crickets, wax worms, meal worms, things like that. In captivity, they're best kept with a, with a large amount of water, but also a terrestrial surface with plants, fake or or real, and a semi-moist substrate like soil or Peat moss because these guys have a very moist skin and they need to be kept in a moist, humid, humid environment, therefore they will dry out if you don't.
