Rep: dianabee has started on the right path
Question odd behavior?

I've had a pair of green tree frogs (h. cinerea) for about 2 years now. Lately they've been exhibiting some odd behavior, burrowing into the substrate.

My vivarium is a 15 tall, with a cocofiber/ topsoil mix and has a combination of live plants (mostly pothos) and plastic suction cup plants that hang from the corners.
I have a water dish, and spray the tank down every day.
My temps usually range from 75-80, and the humidity ranges from 45-70%.

They're doing fine other than this burrowing behavior, eating very well, very active at night, and the male calls non-stop. Does anyone know if this is a normal thing for them to do? And if not, what could be causing them to burrow like this?
