A few years ago I had the American Green Tree Frog as a pet and he was so much fun. I believe that these are good pets for children over the age of 10 but younger children could have a hard time with holding them and they might slip away from their hands. I called my American Green Tree Frog that I had Jumper and for a reason.
I always watch after my pets closely. One day I was away and when I got back Jumper had escaped. I will never know what happened to my pet but I am just hoping that she found a good tree to go up in. When I had Jumper the cage needed to be sprayed twice per day because the humidity must be kept up. The frog will be very unhappy if you are not able to spray it so this is also a high maintenance pet in some ways but yet it's still a lot of fun.
Don't buy crickets that are dead because they won't eat them. They will only eat the live ones. If watching them eat live bugs and crickets doesn't bother you and if you don't mind keeping up with the cleaning of this cage then you might enjoy being able to hold this type of pet and play with them. Personally, I won't be getting a frog again.
