    I have a hard time getting a sense of his size from the photos. About how big was he in April compared to now? He sure is loving whatever you're feeding him--putting superthrive in his water? heehee

    Argh! He's crushing your Masd! Does he do damage?

    By the way, what's his name?

    I don't think I ever gave him a name. He's just My Green Tree Frog . Hehe.
    From the first pic he must have been about 1 inch long. NOw he is a good 2 a half inches.
    Julie, he doesn't do any damage to the plants. Even when he jumps on them full force.

    At 2 1/2 inches he could probably eat full sized crickets, so similarly sized insect, without any difficulty.

    Does he take meal worms? That would probably be the safest insect to feed him since crickets would LOVE the terrarium and probably establish their own little colony.

    Thats the prob, he wont eat anything that looks wormy. It's wierd. Maybe hes got some kind of trauma from when before I got him.???

    Yes, I feed him small crickets, not pinheads, just small. I also give him other insects that I might get like spiders and potato beetles and the beetles that come from the meal worms(which he won't eat when they are still larva).
