We had 14 Gray Tree Frogs and 5 little girls. They LOVED the frogs. When we would mist them in their vivarium, they would sing and chirp and the girls would "sing" along with them. Feeding was also another fun time at our house. We would buy 4 dozen crickets every 2 weeks and the girls would help us feed them. The frogs knew when it was time to eat too, and they would each come to the top of the cage and each had their own little spot and we would watch them eat. We also would feed them worms and random bugs that the girls would find around the yard.
They were great pets. Our 3 year old would sit them on her arm, and even fall asleep with them on her, and they would stay right there on her the whole time! And it was nice to have their beautiful singing every night.
They were very low maintanence , we never really had to clean their cage. The way my husband built their vivarium, they had java moss and different bromiliads, and water with fish at the bottom, so it was essetially a self sustaining eco system. The only routine maintenence was cleaning the water pump filter and keeping the moss off the front glass, and of course cleaning of the outside of the glass of little fingerprints and face prints. They did require misting every other day, but that was about it. This is definitely a beginners frog, easy to care for, low maintenence, and great for kids.
