I just got a tree frog on Wednesday, I know as a species they're fairly inactive but I plan on giving him as a present in a week or so, and have been nervous for his health. He's eaten two crickets since Wednesday, and the pet store said he was probably just jostled from the transition from the store to my home but I thought whyte's were always hungry? Also during the day he is almost always a dark gray color, is this due to stress or his attempt at camouflage? Any tips for how to keep him healthy, I've never owned a frog before and I'm clueless. Thank you so much!

Just make sure that he has plenty of places to hide, do NOT try to move him or find him during the day. Frogs love to hide and don't like to be seen when sleeping. I think this is a common problem when people first get a frog. Also, make sure that his temperature and humidity are good. Upper 70s during the day, lower 70s at night work really well for mine. Although some people recommend 60-80% humidity, my White's prefers 30-40%, so it depends on the frog. Anything more than 40% humidity and he turns really dark brown, which may not necessarily be bad but I think it's a sign of some stress. Aside from that, just make sure his home is big enough, his water bowl is clean and he should be fine. Some frogs really do need a few days to adjust.
