Very cute! Frogs are so amazing. :) All of your photos are incredible. How do you get such beautiful macros? They are so close and amazing! Do you think the key to getting better pictures is a more expensive camera?

No, it's a White's or Dumpy Tree Frog. A red-eyed would jump first rather than trying to reach out like this.

The red-eyed tree frogs, as far as i know, are quite delicate. They're completely different from White's tree frogs. Please do some research to find the best supplier before you decide to buy one. They are also the kind of pet that you put in a carefully thought out terrarium and leave alone. They tend to sleep all day (when the lights are still on) and you can't see their red eyes when they are resting.

Hi Cindy,
you can get them at almost any pet shop that sells pet frogs in the US. At least they used to be that common in the trade due to some Ally McBeal episodes featuring this frog. They are the best frog to keep as they are not endangered, easy to keep and not too expensive! They seem to enjoy being with people and after a few months will prefer to perch on your hand rather than on a branch.
You can usually choose between wild-caught Indonesian type or captive bred (in the US) Australian type.
The trade name is the 'Dumpy' tree frog but in the books they are usually called White's tree frog (Litoria caerulea)

Thank you. I will look into these guys - I just love frogs.

I had 2 Leopard Frogs years ago, but they weren't very bright. They kept jumping up and hitting their heads on the cover of the terrarium. I found one of them dead one morning - laying in the little pond. I think he knocked himself out and drowned! Dumb, eh? ;P

ps. I find that I can keep dumpys in those small plastic terrariums with the snap on plastic tops. However, I keep the terraium upside down so they don't rub thei rnoses on the rough top. They also need some hiding places and a small bowl of clean water (no chlorine/chloramine either!) for soaking when they get a bit dehydrated.
For some reason my males start calling (they sound like ducks) when they hear jet airliners flying by...maybe they think it's going to rain when the sky rumbles....

Ha - I wondered about the "...quack..." part of your title. Couldn't figure out why a frog would say quack - that is too funny. Do all of them act as weird as yours?

Thanks for all the advice here - I am seriously thinking about getting one. Got pretty turned off on owning them as pets after the leopard frog incident. The other one died about a week after the first one committed frogicide...

Leopard frogs (and most "Edible" type frogs or members of the Ranidae family) are notorious for being skittish and strong jumpers. For that reason they do not make good indoor pets. Maybe if you have a huge room with a pond set-up you can keep them happy but who does? Most of these types of frogs would be very hard to keep in small terrariums.
I think you will find Dumpys to be a whole different type of frog. Just make sure you get good healthy ones (no sores on the noses!), keep their water clean and don't overfeed them (you'll end up with sticky green tennis balls!). Find and read their care sheets before getting any.

Thanks - I'mm gonna google them and read all I can. They look just like Jabba the Hutt to me - they must have had these guys in mind when they created/designed him....

:D Jabba is probably more of an African "Pixy" (Pixicephalus) or the Argentine horned frog. Too many of those frogs are named Jabba by their pet humans!

I'm not surprised to hear that - not a very creative name.

Haven't shopped yet, but read up on them and I think I would like to get one. I've read they need a big terrarium - how big is yours? What is the least I can get by with and still have a happy frog?

biawak Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2006
Depends on what you would define a frog's 'happiness'.
They seem to be happy enough in a 10 gallon if you have only one frog.
As long as they have plenty of food and clean water, he'll turn into a fat slob in about a year. Mine lives in a colony of 5, 2 males and 3 females.
They get the run of the small, enclosed backyard we have whenever their terrarium is being cleaned. They don't seem to want to go anywhere though.
