Red-eyes are not the most active pet during the day. They sleep in their cages, sticking to the sides like big pale suction cups. They look pretty cool, actually. But they don't move at all, until nighttime. After dark, there have been many reports of at least four pairs of eyes watching guests and family members from the depths of the tree frog cage, and every now and then, a deep, throaty croak will pull me back from the edge of sleep.
When they're not suctioned to the side of a cage, they're usually walking around. Their lanky legs are always so impossibly thin and I love how all of their colors are so distinct: blue legs, orange toes, green skin, a yellow underbelly, and red eyes. They're a beautiful pet to have and are a great starting place for frog owners!
