My daughter took her two whites outside to enjoy the mild weather today, they were sitting on the car when my daughter forgot about them and came inside for dinner. When she remembered she rushed outside and was able to find her male right where she left him but we can not find the female anywhere, we searched under the car under the hood in the tire wells, around our house and year even in the trees we are frantic with worry and have no idea where to search for her. Could she go very far? It is suppose to get into the 50's tonight and we are afraid she will freeze to death. Anyone have any ideas?

I Have a Whites tree frog named Mr. Croaker and I keep seeing photos of bright green Whites Tree frogs. Why is he not like that?

    White’s Tree Frogs, like all tree frogs, can change color depending on environmental conditions. Things like temperature, humidity, light intensity, health, and the color of their surroundings can affect what color a White’s tree frog is.

    Also there is some different coloraton between these frogs. I've seen them from sort of red to green to grey to even sort of blue.

    Mr. Croaker is normal! I have a couple White s Tree Frogs and they have a large difference in their color spectrum. Some White TFs even have SPOTS and may develop more as they age. As long as there isn't drastic change in behavior, then he's perfectly normal. Not all humans look the same, and frogs are similar in that sense.

    I would like to buy a pair of white tree frogs. I live in Ga and for some reason frogs are not a big seller; if they have frogs there American green tree frogs or red eyed tree frogs or fired bellied toads.So if you have any knowledge of any for sale please email.Thanks Vickie

    Tree frogs aren't that common by me, either! But I got mine at petco for about 15 bucks. If you have a petco by you, they probably have them, but be sure to call petco before you go over there to get the frog.

    My name is Lynda, I live in Corvallis, Oregon as well. I have two young White's Tree Frogs and their large hexagonal, 35 gallon tank which I would be willing to sell to you for a reasonable price.

Be careful when feeding locusts to your wtf. The backs of their eyes protrude at the back of their pallettes. They use them to swallow with and locusts, particularly large ones, have serrated sharp hind legs that can easily puncture an eye. Pull the hind legs off before you feed them to your frog.

I have 8 whites treefrogs and have kept and bred them for about 6 yrs. Just to point out that blindness in your pet can be caused by a build up of fatty tissues in their eyes. This is often brought on by overfeeding them with pinkies. Having said that, cleanliness is everything, filter their water and change it as often as you can and scrub those perches.

Can I put a Day gecko in with a whites tree frog? They have the same habitat and I want to know if they're the same size can they be kept together?

    These frogs can get 5 inches and do eat meat. Depending on size of gecko, it could be looked at as food.

Please help. I had two Whites tree frogs, until last night when one passed. they hadn't been eating all week, but I assumed it was because my girl friend overfed them a week before. Long story short, I'm afraid the first one died from starvation (all of the other conditions in the tank seem to be alright). The other frog still won't eat, what can I do to make her eat? Thanks in advanced.

    Maybe change the food up. Is the humidity right in the tank?
  • David Zaitz - 2012-04-15
    temp is 80 in the day and 75 at night. humidity is always between 40% and 50%. I went out and bought meal worms, wax worms, and even smaller crickets(just incase if the others were too big).

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?
  • David Zaitz - 2012-03-30
    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.
