Anyone elese here love frogs? Been planning on getting some for a while haha haven't kept any for a LONG time (at least 5 years possibly 6). I had a brown tree frog when I was little, very cool little guy, can't remeber what happened to him, think he escaped. Pretty cool little fella. I'm...
I'm moving south so I pulled my old habistat thermostat & reptile radiator out of the cupboard (after 2 years of storage). Set it up and gave it a trial run - it was working perfectly. Unfortunately a few hours later it stopped.
The habistat thermostat light stays on when the heater is...
Just looking for some inspiration.

I found him in Surfers Paradise GC, clinging to the middle of a giant wall with not much vegetation nearby at all. I can't imagine where in the neighbourhood he could have come from... I'm 98% sure he's a GTF but I couldn't find any photos of juveniles (assuming from his size) with these white...
Just thought I would share a couple of pic's of a green tree frog I just took. He (or she) frequents quite often and is usually sitting on the same window sill. He is pretty big and has been around for I would guess a couple of years.
Any experienced herpers care to comment on what looks to be...
about how big do GTF get in captivity? I know the wild ones up at my grandmas in qld were as big as my hand not stretched out but I haven't seen any that big in captivity, I've only seen ones about two thirds the size of them at the most and smaller. I think the main thing I'm trying yo ask is...
Myself and my partner have been on a few herping trips lately and I thought id put up a few of the highlights.
I'll start with the local stuff. I've just done a couple of pretty dismal nights herping around Brisbane so far.
As there isn't too much to find I've been able to experiment with...
Had this little guy for 8 years, shes about 10 years old. Recently she has been staying the water alot, and not eating (ive tried hand feeding). Please help! today she was covered in this (what i think is either poo or blood) I will be taking her to a vet dont you worry, i just want to...
2014 has been reasonably good to me so far in regards to the herping trips I have been on. I just wanted to show some of them off... although I'm quite the dreadful photographer. Regardless, here they are.
Lucasium damaeum - beaded gecko.
Nephrurus deleani - Pernatty knob-tailed gecko...
I'm in the process of setting up a tank for some Green Tree Frogs and I'd like to know where those who already have GTF's, set their basics. So if you have some, please tell me the following of your enclosure.
Your Base Humidity
Ambient Tank Temp
Also, I'd like to hear what you use...
After submitting a few photos for a reptile and amphibian photography competition with rules that allow some minor manipulation, it got me thinking, I (Prior to this competition) have never altered any of my photos and would rather take a great photo on the camera and if it doesn't...
The march of the toad is reaking havoc as im sure everyone is aware. I was talking to a herpertologist at the museum here and he was saying snakes and lizards are getting demolished in NT at the moment.
So why wouldnt the government be doing more.
I have two ideas.
1. Make the canetoad exempt...
hey guys n gals i'm new here and i have a pet green tree frog i rescued from a dogs mouth about 12 months ago it was as small as a 50 cent coin back then but he//she is huge now!!
i have a question about my frog tank/enclosure (i live in QLD so no need for heating or anything like that)
Today as I was just trying to replace half of the water and at the same time get any unwanted water-dwelling poo out of the enclosure, I am just noticing semen everywhere.. all over the glass and in the water..
As I was getting the biggest of my 6 back in, I noticed he had some in his mouth.. I...
As my frogs are getting bigger and I am looking at getting more, I'd like a much larger enclosure.
Does anyone know of anyone in Victoria that does custom glass enclosures?
Also, how to people work heir filters in larger frog enclosures? Just with having to prevent escapes..
Also, show me...
So I've got a three and a half year old, who loves his reptiles.
The other day I tried to teach him common names of the reptiles, and started with the easiest, the Woma.
He started laughing his head off, and said no dad, it's a snake. This went on for about 15 minutes, before he finally started...
Just thought I would show you my most recent tank build. This one is going to be for Magnificent Tree Frogs eventually but has some little Green Tree Frogs enjoying it at the moment.
I started with the Exo Terra Tall/Wide. I must say I was surprised at the sheer quality of this...
I recently wrote to Wildlife Trade Compliance to alert them about this guy I found on Instagram. I actually found him because he liked a photo I'd uploaded of my snake. They reckon they can't do anything about it because the animals might be from populations that were established...
Seems like Frogs are the flavour of the day, I was trawling through FB a couple of nights ago and came across this awesome pic of a frog i had not heard of in Australia, It was being called a "BLUE" Tree Frog from the Rainforest region of Nth QLD, as i have said i have never heard of a Blue Tree...
Noticed my Dainty green tree frog, female, 10 yrs old, that ive had for 7 yrs, she has these spots / broken skin on right leg i noticed about 3 weeks ago and it seems it has gotten a little worse. She has lived in her own terrarium for more than 4 years. She is feeding as normal, and...
Recently I had the chance to head out to far western NSW for 2 weeks on a family holiday with my mum and dad and with a few suggestions of places to go to I managed to fill in a fair bit of herping in that time. Unfortunately the weather wasn't always in our favor with many windy days and cool...
One of my mates are coming down to Melbourne next month and he's offered to give me his green tree frog, which I'm very interested in, but I've got a couple of question's about caring for one.
(1). What is an appropriate sized enclosure for one or two?
(2). What kind of heating/lighting do they...
So I'm keen to build a vivarium and hope to put some sort of frog in once I've finished.
The tank itself will be either 60x45x60 or 45x45x60 (lxwxh) and have a false bottom but include a pond area with which I hope to have a gentle waterfall running into and will use all live plants...
Would it be possible/safe to house a baby green tree frog with a baby water dragon and/or an adult perons tree frog?
i currently have a perons which I revived and rescued and I really want a green tree frog(I miss the ones at grandmas so much:cry:)
and kind of want a water dragon it the future...

Ok...straight up, maths was never my strong point.
I've currently got 4 frog enclosures in my small study room & I'm debating whether to heat them individually OR simply place an oil heater in the room connected to a timer...
My question is...Is there a formula I can work out which scenario...
my placid Atherton jungle python is 3 year old male. Around 6ft.
The tank is 4ft wide x 3ft high x by 2ft deep.
Is there any other reptile or even python that could share the space with him? Or is this a bad idea? What would happen if I chucked a lizard in or a juvenile python? Need...
I am thinking of getting 3 or 4 GTF and therefore am setting up the aquarium at the moment.
I have been researching and pretty much think I know it all .....hahahaha ......
The one thing that has me stumped though is that as a morph you need to have food on hand for the frogs all the time...
Hey everyone I was looking for advice on putting green tree frogs in same enclosure as a gtp I understand potential for disease and parasites like tapeworm in frogs but does anyone know if this can be treated or minimised by breeding frogs I remember years ago seeing 4 or 5 green tree frogs in...

Last night I took my little sister outside at 11:30 to try and find some snakes... All I found were lots of hidious rats, possums, and one very pudgy green tree frog. I was looking forward to finding some snakes (Their was three, one was relocated, other two still out their some where) (their...
I am currently undertaking a research project on breeding green tree frogs as a beginner and I would love your opinions. I own three of these frogs myself and have created a survey on this topic aimed at any green tree frog breeders. The link for this survey is:

I live in rural NT and am wanting to know if I can get a mesh enclosure for 1 or 2 green tree frogs and set it up on a large balcony??
I wanted to keep it as natural as possible with rocks and pot plants maybe??
Temp wise, im wondering if I can just leave that natural as well? Being...
Hi, I just got a 3ft long enclosure from a friend and was wondering if its too big for 1 green tree frog. It will be heated properly and filled with plants ect. It won't stress him out will it? Oh his an adult to. Thanks!
I was given a white's tree frog that is very skinny. the lady i got him from kept him in a rubbermaid tube w/ just substrate and a water dish. i think she may have been feeding him crickets but i doubt it was very often. what type of diet can i put him on that will give him quick weight gain?
I took a walk to the power-meter a couple of hours ago... And took my camera for the ride.
This little fella was on the roof inside my room. Just above the door.
I open my door to see...
I saw a little bit of movement off to my right;
YAY! Brown thing!
My girlfriend decided...
White's Tree Frog / Green Tree Frog
Two green tree frogs, healthy and growing quickly. Need to sell to make space for new creatures.
