Green Tree Frogs

I bought Comanche to fill out my vivarium, with my chameleon and green anole. I really loved this little guy. He wasn't overly active; he just liked to sit on the glass at the top of his tank, and the only time he really moved was to go after crickets. But if I played some music in the room he would chirp along, and sometimes he would chirp in the middle of the night. And it was loud, so if you are a light sleeper like me than I would not keep a male green tree frog close to your bedroom. We didn't handle him too much, since it is not good for the oils on our hands to be absorbed into his skin, but when we did he never tried to jump away from us, and he would eat from our hands. The tricky part was maintaining the correct temperature and humidity level for him. Other than that he was very easy to keep, since we just left him alone and dumped in some crickets every couple of days, making sure to spray the tank and keep it moist. Comanche was a very cute frog and I loved watching him, but a frog is not a good pet to have for people who really want to handle their animals, since that is not healthy for them. Frogs absorb things across their skin, so you want to avoid handling them as much as possible. But Comanche got along with a bunch of other animals and he was a very cute addition, so if you are looking to add to a tropical tank you already have, a green tree frog would probably work.
