Red Eyed Tree Frogs are one of the most commonly recognized frogs in the world, no doubt due to their striking red eyes, bright orange feet and blue markings on the side of their bodies and legs. These frogs can be kept by themselves or in a group of 3 or 4 in a 20-gallon terrarium. They are an arboreal frog, which means they spend the majority of their time off of the ground and in the trees. Décor should be provided for them to climb and perch on above the ground floor. Always provide an ample, clean water dish. This should be cleaned and changed daily. These frogs are delicate and do not do well with excessive handling. However, there is opportunity to create a beautiful environment within a Red Eyed Tree Frog's habitat, making it almost ornamental. Since these are nocturnal frogs, turning off their light at night is the best time to catch their big, beautiful red eyes.
Please note: It is important to wash your hands before and after holding or interacting with a frog. This important for their safety and yours.
