White Lipped Tree Frogs have a beautiful green color with white or cream colored lips and underbelly. They do not require a large terrarium, and have minimal environmental needs. Basic bedding can be picked up at nearly any pet store (and have a nice odor to them). Other essentials are artificial foliage and substrate, a water dish, a mild heat lamp, and a spray bottle to keep the humidity up in the enclosure. They eat feeder crickets about three times a week, which are also easily accessible from most pet stores. The frogs tend to spend most of their time clinging to the leaves or on the glass of the enclosure. They do not mind being handled, but are more sedentary than other small pets. I recommend having another small enclosure to place the frogs when cleaning their cage so you do not lose them or they do not injure themselves. Cleaning is easy, and only requires to dump out the old bedding, wash out the terrarium, and replace the old bedding. Fun and low maintenance pets to have, but make sure if you are going on vacation there is someone who will be able to keep the humidity up and feed the frogs.
