The red eye tree frog is undoubtedly one of the most colorful and eye-catching species of tree frogs. Their gorgeous markings include bright orange feet, lime green body/legs, aqua blue sides, and dazzling red eyes. Even though they’re truly attractive pets, these frogs are quite delicate and are best suited for experienced tree frog owners.
Enclosure: In the past we’ve kept small groups in 20 gallon long terrariums.
Substrate: The most effective and easiest to maintain substrate is simply using damp paper towels. This make for quick easy cleaning. You can also use coconut husk which will help maintain humidity.
Habitat: Red Eye Tree Frogs are communal. You should provide climbing branches to allow the frogs to climb at night and hide during the day. These frogs are arboreal and will spend most of their time up off the ground.
Temperature and Lighting: 75 to 85F degrees. These frogs are nocturnal so UV lighting is not required.
Food and Water: A variety of insects should be provided. Dust insects with a calcium supplement at least twice a week. Provide a small shallow water dish. Change water daily.
