Introducing the White Lipped Tree Frog, a captivating and charming amphibian that will add a touch of elegance to any frog enthusiast's collection. Known for its distinctive white upper lip, this species, scientifically known as Litoria infrafrenata, is native to the rainforests of northern Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia.
With its vibrant green coloration and striking white markings, the White Lipped Tree Frog is a visually stunning creature. Its large size, reaching up to 4 inches in length, makes it an impressive and eye-catching addition to any amphibian habitat.
Caring for a White Lipped Tree Frog requires providing a spacious and vertically oriented enclosure that mimics its natural habitat. A secure terrarium with ample climbing surfaces, such as branches and plants, along with a shallow water dish for soaking, will provide a comfortable and stimulating environment.
Maintaining appropriate temperature and humidity levels is essential for the well-being of your White Lipped Tree Frog. A temperature range of 75-85°F (24-29°C) during the day and a slight drop at night, along with a humidity level of 60-80%, will help replicate its native rainforest conditions.
Feeding your White Lipped Tree Frog a diet of appropriately sized live insects, such as crickets, roaches, and waxworms, will ensure its nutritional needs are met. Dusting the prey items with a calcium supplement before feeding helps promote healthy bone growth.
As nocturnal creatures, White Lipped Tree Frogs are most active during the evening and night. They have a distinctive call that resembles a loud, raspy honk. This adds to their unique charm and makes them a delightful addition to any frog enthusiast's collection.
Please note that White Lipped Tree Frogs are sensitive to handling and should be approached with care. It is important to wash hands thoroughly before and after handling them to avoid transferring any harmful substances.
Bring the beauty of the rainforest into your home with the White Lipped Tree Frog and experience the joy of observing this fascinating amphibian as it gracefully climbs, leaps, and calls in its captivating display of nature's wonders.

I order a pair of red eye tree frogs and I was really happy with the result. Shipment was on time and they send me the most beautiful frogs I have ever seen. I will for sure keep on purchasing frogs from this place.
