Salt Lake City pet store
While I don't think that any of the Salt Lake City pet stores offer Red Eyed Tree Frogs if you can get one they are fantastic. The Red Eyed Tree Frogs are found naturally from Central America to Mexico, most notably in Honduras. They live in tropical forests and move from tree to tree, staying somewhat low to the ground, where they return every night to hunt. They will almost always be found near a water source. This beautiful frog is on of the most sought after of the hybrid frogs! The most striking characteristic of the Red Eyed Tree Frog is obviously their red eyes. The body is a light green in color with blue banding on the sides, interspersed with white. The feet are generally yellowish. They become active at night and are thus awake when the family is home from school and work. They are fascinating to watch. Their color changes, from shades of brown to light greens, is also exciting to witness. The Red Eyed Tree Frog was first imported prior to the middle or late 1980s, generally from Honduras. Crickets and houseflies are two of the best foods for the Red Eyed Tree Frog. Any and all water provided for your frog should have chlorine and chloramines removed. Both of these chemicals are often used in local water treatments. The water bowl needs to be cleaned daily, as that is where the bulk of the urination and defecation will occur. Any other feces should be scooped out or scraped from the glass daily. The cage should be misted two to three times a week, depending on the relative humidity of the cage. This is easily determined by keeping a humidity reader in the cage. These frogs are an excellent frog for beginners and experienced frog owners alike. The Eyed Tree Frogs are not hard to keep as long as their needs are met.
