Tree frogs are different from other frogs since they spend most of their time living in tall trees, rather than hanging around at a pond or creek like other frogs. The only time they usually hang around on the ground is during mating season and they can be found in many regions throughout the world. There are several different types of tree frogs that one might want to have as a pet including the White's Tree frog, Red-Eyed Tree Frog and a Green Tree frog to name just a few.

White's Tree Frog

Originating in the regions of Australia and New Guinea these bright green frogs make great pets. They are not overly active and do not require any special skill to care for them properly. In terms of size, the White's Tree Frog grows to around 4 or 5 inches long and they will live approximately 15 years. Unlike many frogs that hate to be picked up, the White's Tree Frog seems content with being picked up. As for food, if you're wondering what to feed the White's Tree frog, a safe bet would be crickets, meal worms and even baby mice!

Red-Eyed Tree Frog

Just like their name suggests, the Red-Eyed Tree frog has bright red eyes that are noticeable against the bright green color of the frog, with yellow and blue stripes. If you're looking for a unique tree frog with brilliant colors, the Red-Eyed Tree frog is a great option. Red-Eyed frogs are from the rain forests of Central American countries and Costa Rica, which means that when you have them in your home, they need to be kept warm and the air should be very humid. Feeding a Red-Eyed tree frog is easy; Just feed them crickets and they will be very content. These pet frogs will be most active at night and may sleep quite a bit during the day and are very docile.

Green Tree Frog

The Green Tree frog originates in two different regions; the United States and Australia. The Australian Green Tree frog is otherwise known as the White's Tree frog as discussed above.

The American Green Tree frog is found throughout many states in the U.S including Georgia, Florida, Texas, North and South Carolina, Mississippi, Maryland, Delaware and Virginia. The diet of the Green Tree frog consists of crickets, flies, worms and moths, but they are able to go without food for over 48 hours. At 2.5 inches long, they are quite small, but the males are smaller than the females. If you are looking for an inexpensive pet, the Green Tree Frog is perfect as they are often sold for just $10 to $20.

Pet frogs have boomed in popularity in recent years. The Red-Eyed Tree Frog and the White's Tree Frog remain incredibly popular with pet frog owners. If you are looking for a frog for a first time owner, the Green Tree Frog and the White's Tree Frog are both super choices.

I think I like turtles the best because they are aquatic and they seem to enjoy life. I like lizards because they look like tiny dinosaurs. And of course Chameleons because of their tongue and googly eyes!
