Barking Tree Frog Care Sheet

Home > Frogs > Care Sheets

Barking Tree Frogs make excellent pets for the beginning frog keeper as they are very hardy. Be prepared for some noise though as they do make a barking sound which resembles that of a small dog.
 
Natural Location: North America
Average Lifespan:

8 to 10 years

Average Size: 2" to 3"

Feeding & Water

A variety of insects should be fed to your Barking Tree Frog. These can include crickets, mealworms, silkworms, superworms and waxworms. Having a variety is important to keeping your frog healthy, but be careful not too feed to many fatty insects.

A shallow bowl of water should be made available as Barking Tree Frogs do enjoy taking a drink.

 

Temperature, Lighting & Humidity

A daytime temperature of 75 degrees F to 80 degrees F is satisfactory for Barking Tree Frogs. At nightime a temperature drop of 10 degrees F or so is recommended.

Barking Tree Frogs have no specific lighting requirements besides an uninterupted period of complete darkness during the night.

 

Housing

When planning a habitat for a Barking Tree Frog take into consideration their climbing ability. The habitat should be taller than it is wide and with plenty of branches to allow your frog to climb around.

Be sure to have a place in the enclosure where your frog can hide if it becomes scared. Barking Tree Frogs easily become scared and you can tell by their color changing to a lighter shade of green. As it is alleviated of the stress the color will change back to its regular darker shade of green.
