Default Wandered over to the froggy side with Hyla arborea juveniles.

I have recently acquired a few juvenile Hyla arborea, which I am going to keep in my shed. These are something I had toyed with for a while... I weakened and the fun begins. I found information about these rather lacking, so following one of the breeders advice I provided ( in my opinion) a lovely secure tank with moss, leaves and bark. All was well until I added a second group.

I had placed them all in a tank, with a top opening lid. I had not appreciated that they where expert climbers, they moved very fast as soon as they lid was touched they could jump in all sorts of interesting directions..... Providing them food became very traumatic for me. I feared a mass escape.

I then ordered a terrarium, with a lovely front opening door. After a few hours putting it together I discovered the lock was missing and that it was far bigger than I expected. Today I finished it off ( the lock had arrived) with a lovely branch, ivy, moss , a small fern and ' Mind your own business' ( Soleirolia). The frogs where then transferred with minimal distress to me and them

They are so far being fed fruit fly, woodlice, white worm and small earthworm

Looking great. The ones from me are from my group Sometimes produce bright (I mean BRIGHT) blue animals, keep an eye out for blue offspring -they are quite something!

If I remember, a blue frog is typically caused by lack of yellow pigment in the skin, making them blue. Same thing with the White's tree-frog

Yep, a lovely bright blue. I don't know why they go this colour (though it's genetic rather than a lack of carotenes in their diet) but they do stay that colour throughout their life.

I found one of the smallest lurking in the fruit fly container... I nearly missed it :)
