A nice video above of American Green Tree Frog sound.
The American Green Tree Frog originates from south-eastern North America. It is an absolutely beautiful frog that inhabits meadows and grasslands. It particularly likes ponds and lakes.
It is a bright green (like a grass green) frog, but this can change depending on its surroundings to yellow, brown or a brownish-greyish colour. It has a light stripe that starts at the upper jaw and along the side of a lovely slender body.
The male frog has a more wrinkled throat than the female, and it can also be slightly darker.
These frogs have toe-pads that allow them to climb very well and efficiently.
If you are lucky enough to have one, it should be kept in a tall arboreal-type vivarium (click here to visit page on vivarium setup). A vivarium is a glass container that is used to house the amphibian. An arboreal set-up means that it is planted with tall plants for these frogs that like to climb.
The American Green Tree frog is mostly nocturnal and actually prefer walking around instead of jumping. Having said that, they like the occasional leap and pounce especially when trying to catch a nice juicy fly or even a cricket.
These frogs are fairly delicate and are extremely fast jumpers. For that reason it is best not to handle them, and if you do need to handle, then keep them safe in moist cupped hands.
This frog settles well into captivity.
