Red eye tree frog (litoria chloris) occupies coastal eastern Australian rainforests, from Queensland to New South Wales and as far north as Prosperine. they occupy coastal wet sclerophyll and rainforests. They can also be encountered in flooded grasslands, near rivers, and in regrowth areas. Male Australian red-eyed tree frogs range from 5.4 to 6.2 cm, snout to vent length, while females are larger at 5.8 to 6.8 cm
TEMP: keep the temp similar to green tree frogs at around 22-28c during the day and let the temps drop to around 20c at night.
HUMIDITY: keep the humidity at around 70%. if you are having troubles to drop or rise the humidity, read the whites tree frog page.
ENCLOSURE: they require a very aboreal habitat, but can live happily in an enclosur which is half the size of the GTF's enclosure. for your first RETF you get keep him in a 20 gallon enclosure and then add 5 gallons per frog you aquire. furnish the enclosure similar to a WTF's enclosure.
LIGHTING: read on whites tree frog page.
BREEDING: breed these frogs similar to WTF breeding, but with RETF's they require a lot more spraying in the enclosure, so a rain chamber would work well.
