>>we happened across a pair of these beautiful frogs. They seem to both be full grown and are eating well. I have them in a 50 gall triquarium. they seem to be eating and doing well. However there is so little info on these frogs in captivity, I'm hopeing someone out there can help or knows about them,food,tank setup,health problems,breeding (any info is good info.).
>> feel free to call 541-778-5006, RYAN

These are big treefrogs and they are uncommon in captivity. That is the main reason you won't find much information about them in captivity. If they are full grown, they are almost certain to have been wild caught. Wild caught amphibians often harbor internal parasites. These parasites won't do the frogs harm if the frogs are healthy, kept warm, have access to clean water and they are not stressed. These are probably the most important things to keep in mind. Treefrogs often live a long time in captivity, even when they were caught as adults. Expect them to live for 10 years or more under proper care. Good luck.
