Red eyed tree frog – A frog is a wonderfully renovated subspecies Hilid neotropical frogs. The Red eyed tree frog is completely shattered five industry. Usually a green spinal part, but shades of green vary depending on the temperature or other stress, as well as the level of activity frogs. The color on the back can be the blurry olive green frog when cold and when it is dry. Dark green can be associated with rest, or if the climatic conditions are ideal and the Frog actively searching for food, can be vibrant colored leaves. Hips are blue edged with white or light yellow. The toes are orange. The belly is white. Red-eyed tree frogs have large and well-developed pads of the fingers and the news to jumping, as well as walking on his elevated house. Planks are dark red, and the pupils are vertically ellipsoid.

Red eyed tree frog is now available as Csantik (creamy yellow with yellow eyes) and as an albino (yellow with red eyes) morphs. The Red eyed tree frog is one of the nocturnal species. Males produce their sound melodic (unmusical sound for all but the females of their species), usually monosyllabic (but sometimes ascending) calls sitting on vegetation along the pond.

The size and lifespan

Adults of this beautiful arboreal frogs have a length of 5.1 – 6 cm and can live more than 10 years in captivity.

Natural habitats

Red eyed tree frogs, probably one of the most arboreal frog in the world, the inhabited region of southern Mexico to Panama. They can also be found in northern Colombia.

Care in captivity

Keeping one or two Red eyed tree frogs can be either easy or difficult, whatever you decide. The tank capacity of 37.8 liters with a wet paper towel on the bottom and with the addition of a small philodendron or Schaeffler in flowerpot, may be sufficient although aesthetically more pleasant if properly planted herbs and add a small waterfall or pond.

Red eyed tree frog can feel at home with a relatively dry surface and a small bowl of fresh water. Keep the cage clean. Lack of cleanliness absolute likely to transmit potentially deadly pathogens on your frogs.

Red eyed tree frogs are nocturnal arboreal species. Usually, sleep soundly during the day, bowed, eyes closed tight, recessed feet beneath the body. They wake up at night and love. I can jump, although usually walk slowly in the manner of the hand in front of his fist. In most cases, the cap in the form of mats is recommended (given that it allows ventilation) long before a glass cover. Suitable humidity in the cage should be maintained obscuring the reservoir, if necessary.

Tanks with a capacity of 110 to 378.5 liters them somewhat closer to natural conditions. In addition to leafy plants, woody like knotty manzanita (do not use cedar or any twigs treated with insecticides or fungicides) can be provided. Water should be put in a shallow dish. Keep the aquarium glass and water.

Crickets, wax worms, like most other insects will gladly eat. For adult frogs, insects should spray vitamin D3 and calcium once a week or once every ten days. Insects that can give fast-growing young frogs are supposed to be dusty added calcium and vitamin D3 twice a week.

Red-eyed tree frog has a specific reproductive biology. While spawn, the female group set eggs on a leaf that hangs above the stagnant water. Female Red eyed tree frog will often fold the sheet over litter, to prevent drying out. The mass of the egg is gelatin skin layer. Tensile strength gelatin changes to the incubation time and, shortly afterward will slip out and tadpoles fall into the water where they will begin their lives in an exemplary manner. If the mass of eggs moved to a place where they lack water in which we have to fall, and if they can not find water after a vigorous hand-wringing, the larvae will die.

Increasing success when it comes to reproduction can be achieved if a number of red-male holds the same place with one female. Pushing and fight males seem to promote fertility. In the greenhouse, the inclusion of ten males and several females can be very productive.
Red eyed tree frogs are usually steam after a period semi inaction or after the dry season. Males advertise short, harsh, croaking clipped to call for females. Males of Red eyed tree frog embrace the female just below the front legs. This is called axillary amplexus. The increase in temperature, light and humidity (especially enabling “rainy” irrigation system) stimulates mating. Only males beep. Most adult females are bigger and has a stronger body than adult males. Males get eyeballs on strengthening fingers when reproductively active and tend to sit in plunging paragraph (front limbs are less fixed than in females).

The litter contains from fifteen to sixty eggs. One female lays several litters during the season. Females in captivity often choose their place of lodging eggs a few inches above the water on the glass aquarium. This litter should move carefully from the glass by a slight slip wetted razor beneath flocks, holding the blade firmly against the glass. Eggs would also be moved to another container and set on a sheet plants a few inches above the bowl with clean water. Keep the humidity seconded by litter pan with the plastic bag or a glass plate.
All the water used must be free of chlorine. The water temperature must be appropriate for the species that is in it. Normal room temperature (25.5-27.8 °C) is sufficient for the incubation of eggs this tropical frogs.

Tadpoles of frogs will eat large amounts of high-quality fish feed, including food for trout and catfish. The time period for the cubs transform is about two months.
Ensure sufficient quantities of tiny insects before they pair these frogs. Due to rapid growth, during metamorphosis individuals may be prone to develop the metabolic bone disease at this stage of his life. Feed them generously and often, and dusted with a mixture of high-quality food with vitamin D3 and calcium.

Other frogs with similar needs

Other arboreal frogs, most toads and frogs will develop properly if you apply the care regime who suggest for a red-arboreal frog. Study the exact needs of each type separately.
