You can observe this most natural of red eyed tree frog activities if you have several frogs as pets. The key is to mimic the conditions of the rainforest that encourages mating. That is, you must create the right balance of a dry period prior to the rainy season. Humidity and temperature will have to be as it is in their natural habitat of the rainforest.

Red-eyed tree frogs are popular pets. Although they are not considered endangered at this time, they have been trapped extensively for sale in the pet trade. They also face a loss of habitat due to deforestation in their native areas.Red-eyed tree frogs are among my favorites in the amphibian world. Probably because of their brilliant colors, but because they’re tiny and so darn cute. Just look at that face! If you plan to keep them as pets, though, you should be a night owl, as it’s the wee hours of the morning when they’re most active. Otherwise, during the day, you’ll have to hunt for them. Amazingly those bright green bodies are perfect camouflage for the undersides of leaves.Red Eyed Tree Frogs as Pets, Complete Care Guide including information on purchasing, raising and caring for Red Eyed Tree Frogs as well as habitat, feeding, health problems and breeding, all included.In this book you will find all the information you need to know about Red Eyed Tree Frogs including tips for feeding, housing, breeding, habitat and more.

The Red Eyed tree frog is an amphibian that is native to both South and Central America. In North America, they are quite popular pets with amphibian enthusiasts as they are attractive looking and moderately easy to obtain. Red Eyed tree frogs have above average hand coordination for a frog and have been dubbed “monkey frogs’ because of it.A few particularly popular amphibian species that might not have quite the same effects as their serpentine kin–but are just as exotic—include the tomato frog and the well-known families of Dendrobatidae (poison dart frogs) and Hylidae (red-eyed tree frogs and spring peepers, to name two). These particular amphibians are regulated by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES, which establishes controls, protocol and limits for managing species that are endangered in the wild but for which there is high consumer demand. These frogs are listed among either the first or second appendices of CITES, meaning that they are restricted from being captured in the wild or are threatened in the wild, and their trade or sale may be regulated or restricted at any time. However, captive-bred individuals of these species are acceptable for trade and sale. Pets that are illegal to own generally depend on state laws, and many states have clear laws discussing what animals are illegal to be kept as pets and which animals require a permit to keep. For instance, to own African clawed frogs, red-eyed tree frogs and a variety of other common pet trade frogs.
