Having a great love of the outside, and as a child having several frogs and related amphibians, I thought it appropriate for my children to experience the delight. The chosen frog was a Gray’s Tree Frog for several reasons – appearance, mobility and overall care.
These frog’s do require care. Daily sprays, feeding, a safe environment. Ours lived with Firebellied Frogs and enjoyed a homebuilt terrarium. The pair got along well and the children (and I) enjoyed them greatly.
Are frogs the perfect pets, well no. It takes someone who is fascinated by non-mammals to really enjoy amphibians. But once you get passed a stereotype, the frog and related animals have a unique character to them.
So yes, Gray’s Tree Frogs are a nice pet to keep. They bring joy and attention to caring.
