I'm getting a pair of WTFs and I have a 50 watt infrared bulb heating the tank. My room gets bright enough during the day to take the place of a bulb that gives off light. Does this sound ok in terms of light and heat?

    Depending on the size of the tank, it should be. Obviously if it's a huge tank you will need more of a heating source. What are you using for humidity?

    I have a 18 inch tall Money Tree plant for a 12x12x18 tank. I spray the tank with spring water when humidity gets below 40.

    If it is actually blind there is nothing you can do. He will learn his way around the tank and be comfortable. Leave food in the same place each time and if possible help him to become familar with the tank placing him back in in the same place each time. He is not going to know he is blind - it just is what it is to him as long as he learns the tank.

I have just thrown a white lipped tree frog out. It kept appearing in the toilet bowl. This evening it was sitting on the rim so I caught it (bare handed -- if it can live in the toilet I will not give it an infection!!). I put it onto a palm tree outside.

Ten minutes later my wife went out to take a photo and we found 2 of them, one with the pinkish legs, one more white in the tree.

The pleasures of living next to a rainforest!!

Hey. I have a Red-eyed Tree Frog and I feed him primarily live crickets. However, this food source is getting expensive and I was wondering if it is possible to wean my frog onto freeze-dried crickets and mealworms. If this is possible, how would I get him to eat the nonliving alternatives? Thanks.

    Red-eyed tree frogs are carnivorous and eat crickets, moths, flies, and other insects, and have been known to eat other small frogs. For froglets, fruit flies and pinhead crickets are the meals of choice.
    This is what I can find and I can find nothing which says they can eat freeze dried foods. The problem here is they would be non-moving (as you realize) and therefore the little guy would not recognize them as food. There are obviously other choices besides the crickets - but I don't think non living would work.

    Live food is needed. If it isn't living they don't eat it as they don't see the dead insects as food.

I have four white lipped tree frogs that live mostly in my kitchen - they nip out onto the verandah at night to have a swim in the dog water dish and then squelch their way back to the pantry, leaving puddles all over the house! They are also quite clumsy and regularly knock things off shelves during their travels around the house. There has been more than one occasion when I have been woken by the sound of breaking glass as they have sent a vase or jar flying. There are two huge ones, one medium sized one and one "youth" We love them dearly, but wouldn't keep them enclosed in any way. I have decided to leave a bowl of water in the pantry and one on the kitchen bench at night - less mess for me each morning. We are very happy with these house mates, despite their mess. I hope they stay with us for many years.

    Further to my earlier post, my green tree frog population in the house has increased to at least eight! Those are just the ones I can see - but it seems like every time I move something in the pantry or on the deck, there is another frog hiding behind it! It's like the frog super-highway at night. I think one of the reasons there are so many at the moment is that it is incredibly dry out, and they have access to water here in the house. The doors and windows are always open, so they can come and go as they please. They have a water bowl in the pantry, another in the kitchen sink, the dog bowl on the deck, and now I have put another dish of water in the dining area on the deck. Two of the frogs have taken up residence in a lamp in the lounge, four in the pantry and a couple on the deck. Lots of fun watching these guys. :)

Having geckos, dragons, and skinks, we decided to add to our family 2 white lipped frogs after leaving the store with what we believed to be smaller frogs. Imagine our surprise once researched at our newly acquired baby giants and we would'nt have them any other way. Ollie(because he likes to change from green to olive any chance he gets) and Freddo cause he's littler have already become quite the personalities...Ollie is onto a door or enclosure top being raised at a drop of a hat and likes to jump to the glass whenever he sees me, Freddo is a little more laid back but he does have a gorgeous blue/green spot on the top of his head! I look forward to many more years with our newest family members.

Two days ago I became the proud owner of a white's tree frog! I
named her Ibbet and he's so much fun (especially when my niece
and nephews come over) but I didn't buy her at the pet store. I got
her from a "friend of a friend" and she came to me with a sore on her
nose. It seems to be a little better but I wonder what caused it in the
first place! Could it be from bacteria or could she have scraped it? Is there
anything I can put on it till it heals?

    Try reading the article on the tree frog. Just click on it. We would need more information as to what you think it is, what it looks like, what is happening to attempt to make any kind of determination as to what is happening. Is the little guy eating and drinking? Is he lethargic? Does it look like it is infected or any yellow around the sore? Does it look like a scrape etc? Try to keep the area clean with distilled water and a q tip.
    Let us know more information if possible. OK?

    I think it may have just scraped its nose. I have had a few frogs that did that it heals just fine. They may have a scar but nothing too severe.

Ashley while it is sad knowing their wild habitat it disappearing. I don't believe keeping them in captivity is bad at all, given proper care and a good sized home these little guys seem to be just has happy as they would be in the wild.
