These diminutive creatures (very seldom more than five centimeters) are found in Central American and South American rain forests. Their diet in the wild consists of ants, termites, small spiders, and other small insects. These incredible frogs are diurnal and require little as far as care and maintenance. If you were considering a vivarium I would personally encourage anyone to obtain these animals. As they will make a great addition to and add colors to your lushly planted tank.
To say there are many variances within the species would be an understatement to say the least. But the fun doesn’t stop there. There are the occasional albino Green Tree Frogs Hyla cinerea produced through captive breeding as well as the coveted Axanthic or Blue strain.
