I was given Pip as his previous owner was no longer able to keep him. I had never even thought about owning a frog before but found there was lot of information available online so that I was able to easily learn how to provide him with the correct care.
I found Pip easy to care for and was able to buy items such as plastic plants and branches online to furnish his vivarium with ease. A taller vivarium is most suitable as their natural environment is within the trees so these frogs will climb branches and other items and even the glass sides. Their homes also need to be kept relatively humid. Heat lamps and bulbs can be dangerous to tree frogs and a heat mat is a safer choice.
I found Pip an easy pet to care for and with no mess or smells. He would sleep most of the day and wake in the early evening and other than crooking occasionally made no noise at all. He was easy to handle and would climb along a person's arms and across their shoulders. If I was looking for another pet in the future I would be liekly to chose a White's Tree frog
