The two available species are Green (the species from the southern US) and White's. Personally I think White's are cooler, but right now the biggest concern is the noise a male might make. Can anyone tell me how loud they are?

I think they're loud. But then they're both loud and you can always get a female.

Anyway, nice to meet you, Brian. I'm Alex and I think you should get whichever would be best to keep under your personal circumstances. Either way, let us know what happens and everyone here will try their best to help you out

Welcome! If you like WTFs get a female, they get bigger and don't call incessantly. Personally, I love my female GTF. But get what ever you like and think you can handle. And as said, we're all here to help if you need advice. Btw, my name's Bill.

If you are looking for a tree frog that's attractive and isn't all that loud when they call... I have some Cubans if you are interested. They will be ready to ship in a couple weeks. The adult males that I have right now call but they aren't all that loud. It sounds like someone is rubbing a moist finger against the side of a balloon. It's far from an annoying sound and it has yet to wake up my 2 year old whos room is closest to them.

welcome to the forum brian!!!!!
frogs are a big responsibility and are not like a dog or a cat, they are just for observing. if you want a frog that doesn't make noise go for a female. you cannot tell the sex of frogs when they juvenile , they must be full size. even when they are sexually mature it can be hard to "sex" them, especially if it is not breeding season.

just remember, before you buy a frog DO RESEARCH!!!!!!!!!!
if you want husbandry info on whites visit my site.

hope this helps, luke z

Whites are awesome,and yes theyre call is quite loud. My male white's likes to compete with my dogs barking-all three of them at once,and you can still clearly hear his croaking over them. I love it when he croaks though, it means hes happy,and that means im doing something right. White's Tree Frogs are awesome beginner frogs,and i highly recommend them. Just research them the best you can,both species actually,and decide which is good for you, i am partial to the Whites of course. Good luck on your hunt!

I've been looking into getting a whites. They have the cutest faces, and i love their toes.

Will 2 males be okay together? I'm wanting to get two, but don't want to have babies

Thanks everyone.

I'm just worried about if I share an apartment/a room in a house next fall (I'm a student)that the noise would drive people crazy or get me a complaint to the landlord.

So basically I need to find a species that is at least quite enough if I shut a door it can't be heard noticably, as well as one that is legal to own in California (I'm not 100% sure about Cubans just heard that in Hawaii there an invasive species).

I actually have a few toads right now but there pretty much quite except for late night digging.

Should warn people my spelling can be pretty bad.

I've never heard about Cubans being invasive in Hawaii, but who knows. I know some coquis are, though. Since they did already invade most of coastal Florida, they could be illegal in California. But they can't handle cold weather at all and would die in most places there in the winters. And Heather is right because my Cuban males aren't very loud, either.

Anyway, why don't you just get a female Whites?

Oh, I had just read a book about the invasive thing, could have been wrong or out of date.

Anyway, the problem is that the White's at the pet store appear to be to young to be reasonably sure of sex. So I would need to be prepared for a male just in case.

I will think about this though.

Ah, and you certainly want a juvenile? Anyway, if you're going to live in a dorm I think any male would be annoying, as would adult crix. But if you'll have your own room in an apartment, it's hard to imagine them bothering someone if you place them in the right place. The frogs are loud, but their sounds don't travel well between walls. They've never bothered my brother or my roommates when I lived with them. But that all depends on the person, 'cause I can hear them just a little.

Anyway, good luck and I hope you find a froggy!

Ah, that's what I wanted to know.

It usually takes me a couple months to plan what exactly I'm going to do (put a nice cage together, research the species habits, etc.) Anyway thanks for the input from everybody. I just remember the Pacific Treefrog the neighbor here put in the little pond back here. The thing could be heard anywhere on the block. Didn't want something that loud.

You could probobly hear it so well because of the craoking echoing outside. There is a different sound dynamic inside that for some reason doesn't echo as much unless it's a big room.

Right. The green tree frogs outside were loud as hell, but once inside of walls it was hard to hear in another room, even though they sound very loud if you're in the room with them.

One question I still have is about humidity. I've kept a lot of toads in the past, but for them humidity was never an issue. What do people who have WTFs keep them around? I seem to have come to the conclusion that temp. will not be a huge issue for me around here.
