Frogs are my favorite! I love all kinds of frogs. The Australian Green Tree / Bell Frog are really cool. They are large enough to see in the aquarium, and are fun to feed insects to. they hardly move, unless chasing prey. These are a fun pet for kids to raise. I would recommend that an adult supervise any handling, until the child was confident. They are slippery and can jump really high and far! If not handled properly you can hurt them easily. They need minimal supervision - but a live diet is best. I was never successful in breeding them, but didn't actively try. I believe they will eat young tadpoles, so you would a proper breeding tank - or separate nursery area for eggs/tadpoles. They are definitely a fun pet to have.
