Red-eyed Tree Frog

Posted by in Care Sheets, Frog and Toad Care Sheets

Red-eyed tree frogs make good pets so long as you purchase well-started captive-bred frogs over an inch in length and provide the right environment. This includes a spacious ventilated enclosure with high humidity and moderate temperatures. Although they have a reputation for being difficult to keep, under the right conditions red-eyed tree frogs are actually quite hardy.
