Feeding & Water

Feed your juvenile White's Tree Frog every day, providing a wide variety of gut-loaded feeder insects, such as crickets, mealworms, waxworms (limit these, as they are very fatty), butterworms and earthworms. Dust the insects with a multi-vitamin supplement. Adults need to be fed every 2 to 3 days, but multiple insects at a time. Supply a water dish, making sure to change the water and clean the dish every day.

 

Temperature, Lighting & Humidity

Provide a daytime temperature from 75 degrees F to 85 degrees F. At night, let the temperature drop down to 67 - 70 degrees F. Your Whites Tree Frog will also need a basking spot, reaching inbetween 95 - 100 degrees F. Keep the humidity between 60% - 75%. For best lighting, use an incandescent bulb and a flourescent. Getting a full spectrum bulb isn't as important as it is with lizards, but it is recommended.

 

Housing

A 20 gallon glass aquarium is the best choice for a single White's Tree Frog. You will want to provide a lot of cover; fake plants, bark, coverings, branches, etc. Use damp potting soil, peat moss or other like material for the substrate.
