The best pet frog for you!.

We get many questions on what the best frog is to guy as a beginner and over all pet,.So we found a few quick facts for you, and here they are.

The White’s Tree Frogs make excellent pets to start off with. They are a great choice for beginners who have never owned a frog because they are easy to care for and not nearly as delicate or hard to take care of  as other types of pet frogs. They are actually quite cute, friendly, and a little different than most types of pets . White’s tree frog owners should work n providing a calm and clean habitat. Stress can be harmful to white’s tree frogs…so beware of that when you purchase them. Try to keep your frog’s terrarium in a relatively quiet room also. They LOVE QUIET.

One of the coolest things about white’s tree frogs is that they don’t really mind humans too much and can be handled without freaking you or it out. Don’t forget they do like to jump and trust us..they will. Before handling your frog, rinse your hands thoroughly to avoid spreading germs to your frog or even other areas of you or your home. One thing, don’t use soap prior to handling your white’s tree frog though, as soap can be harmful to its skin. The white’s tree frog’s skin can be harmful to humans so wash your hands!.

Habitat

A poorly designed environment can cause unnecessary stress, while a filthy tank or any other habitat can really increase the risk of a frog ailment and disease. To avoid this, clean your frog’s cage about once a month and take the time to pick up its frog poops when you see them.Your frog should have plenty of stuff to crawl on and hide behind also. Remember, your frog’s ancestors lived in the jungle, so they need a habitat that looks lie the one thousands of years ago.

Water

The water in your frog’s dish should be changed daily if possible. Clean water is key for your white’s tree frog just like any other frog. You will either want to use spring or drinking water – not distilled. If you would rather use tap water, keep it in a gallon jug and add about eight drops of to treat the water for your frog. It will cost you about $6 and last you a very long time.

As with other types of tree frogs, white’s tree frogs also need the right level of humidity. Keep a spray bottle nearby and mist the inside of your pet frog’s cage frequently (again, daily if possible).
