White's Tree Frogs
They Make Great Pets
White's tree frog is a green or blue-green frog native to Australia, Indonesia, and New Guinea. It's a popular pet because of its petite size and its facial "expression," which includes sleepy-looking eyes and a "smiling" mouth. Its skin has a waxy coating that allows it to tolerate more arid conditions than its fellow tree frog breeds.
Behavior and Temperament
White's tree frogs are quite sedentary and docile and can become fairly tame and tolerate handling. Remember, however, that amphibians have very sensitive skin that absorbs chemicals easily, so extreme care is needed when handling. These frogs are nocturnal, which means they are more active in the evening and night hours. A White's tree frog is a good choice for a beginning frog owner.
