Have i totally missed something on this post?
Have you asked the breeder what they were feeding?? Did it come from a breeder?
So what you are really saying MelsTheBells is that you 'aquired' an animal you know nothing about, and couldnt even use Google to do some research before posing questions here.
...some people really make me laugh!I Fart in your general direction (Holy Grail 1974)
I agree the welfare of the animal is paramount but seriously, how many posts are there on here and other forums reguarding husbundry related questions. Many questions come from people who obviously have never kept, or had anything to do with reps. The quantity of knowelage also begs the question of origin of the animal. You would like to think a breeder would have given a quick run down on care and feeding wouldnt you.I Fart in your general direction (Holy Grail 1974)

I hate when people try to flame people for asking questions that people not involved with reptiles wouldnt know.. I was taught if you dont know ask and if you do know answer the question to help someone out...

Like mentioned b4, did the breeder/ person you got the snake off give you any information about it I.e d.o.b, feeding history, sex??
That way we can help you more
Just to clarify... When I brought my 6 month old children's python. I was given a full feeding history which included his shed history, a book on him (species) and I was told to call if I had any queries. This is about normal when u buy a snake from a breeder.

Not Shaw of the rules but little frogs would be what they would eat naturally in the wild i hear them eating the frogs in my yard and saw a medium size green tree trying to eat this hugs green frog was way to big but tried anyway hehe!! georgious little snakes enjoy!!
You can't (well, shouldn't) be feeding frogs to your GTS. For one, you can't capture wild frogs and use them as food - they fall under licensing laws in all states (as far as I am aware).
People here have already suggested spineless fish - which is adequate.
In the wild - licensing laws don't exist - snakes can eat what ever they find... In captivity, however, snakes are fed based on licensing laws....Give a man a fish and feed him for a day...
Teach a man to fish and feed him for a life time (or until fish become extinct, which ever occurs first)
Really interesting about the Green Tree eating crickets. As far as I know it's the first time it's been recorded.
A few snakes in Australia have been recorded eating insects, but not many. You may have really hit on something here.
Some pics of it eating them would be great. Try and take them in high res as you'll probably see them in print one day!Pay no attention to what the critics say...Remember a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic.

I was thinking the same think Kreft! I have heard of someone else feeding crickets to a hatchy common tree snake, as crickets hop some what like a baby frog the tree snake thinks yum food and catches and eats the crickets! Very interesting!Don’t ask for permission... ask for forgiveness!
Awesome... thanks for the heads up on the geckos and tips on best fish to feed him. Appreciate it guys! Will try my darndest to get some pics of him eating crickets
Excuse me for thinking the best place to come for advice was a site devoted to snakes, as opposed to Google which is clogged full of crap. I was not aware that this site and all its forums was just for those who are insufferable no-it-alls who have no patience for those who are still learning and have nothing better to do with their time than put people down for asking for advise! I would take information and opinions from this site, more than anything found on Google any day... Although after encountering you, I now know that there are judgemental, no-it-alls wherever one goes. You make me laugh.

and how is the current husbandry like, i.e. enclosure size, etc etc
i'm personally just curious if the cricket eating may be due to whatever environmental factor exist or being just a plain quirk(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻
You can get tiny pinkie mice that this thing should be able to eat. Doesn't hurt to find a mice breeder on here and ask for some freshly birthed mice. That way if not just freeze them for later. Doesn't hurt to try!
