Big-eyed Tree Frog (Leptopelis viridis)

A.K.A. Peacock Tree Frog, Amani Forest Tree Frog

Description:

Big-eyed Tree Frogs are small green frogs which turn browner as they mature. Both males and females grow to 2-2 inches in length, with the females being slightly larger. Males have a looser throat which may turn bluish. Males also have nuptial pads (a small swelling on the forearm, absent in females) and may chirp or croak to attract females. They have been recorded as living up to 13 years.

Habitat and Tank Requirements:

This species is native to West Africa. They do well with plenty of live plants and other things for them to climb, such as wood and rocks.

Approximately 1/3 of their tank should be water. You can either use an under-gravel filtration system or clean the water every 2-3 days. You can use a small bowl just deep enough for the frogs to submerge themselves. If you decide to go with a filter, use common sense: a pump that is too small will leave the water dirty, while a too-powerful pump with filter out the microorganisms needed to maintain a healthy pH.

Be sure there are no openings in the tank through which the frog can escape. A hole large enough for a frog to stick its head out of is large enough for it to escape.

Big-eyed Tree Frogs are small enough that you can keep 4 or 5 in a 10 gallon tank, however, as with all frogs, do not keep different species of frogs in the same tank. There is a risk of disease and parasites being spread between species, even if the carrier frog does not show any symptoms.

The comfortable temperature range for these frogs is 74-82 F during the day and a slight drop to around 68-72 F at night. LEDs or other low-wattage light bulbs work best for maintaining these temperatures.

Diet:

Big-eyed Tree Frogs are insectivorous and will feed on small crickets, fruit flies, mealworms, wax worms, and any other insect small enough for them to ingest. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.

Handling:

Allow your frog time to become accustomed to its new home before handling them extensively. Handling them little by little over a period of time lets the animal get used to you and reduces stress.
