This listing is for one (1) White's Tree Frog tadpole. When you order this, you will receive one (1) tadpole >1/2 inch in body size (not including the tail).
Name: Litoria caerulea or the White's Tree Frog is named after John White, an Irish surgeon, zoologist, and botanist, who was the first to describe the species. Caerulea is Latin for "heavenly blue", though not all frogs in this species are blue. Other names for this species include Dumpy tree frog and Australian Green Tree Frog.
Housing: These tadpoles can get relatively big (3/4+ inches). At the time of metamorphosis most froglets will be about 3/4 of an inch long but can deviate from this. Because the size of these frog tadpoles is considerably larger than other groups of frogs, you can house about 2 tadpoles per gallon of water. Most water coming into contact with an amphibian should be treated with dechlorinator to neutralize any chlorine or chloramines present. This process can be skipped if you are starting with RO or distilled water, but this will need to be reconstituted and preferably made into tadpole tea using tannins from leaf litter. Water temperature should remain over 76°F and not exceed 85°.
Growth rates of these tadpoles will depend on temperature and food availability. These tadpoles can eat a myriad of foods, but primarily are fed Josh's Frogs Tree Frog Tadpole food with supplemental feeding including things like Repashy Soilent Green and blood worms. Depending on density of tadpoles, feeding frequency, and temperature, water changes will need to be as frequent as once a day to as infrequent as once a week.
Metamorphosis: These frogs are avid climbers but may need assistance when morphing out of the water. We typically find it's easiest on them to provide floating structures for them to climb onto when exiting the water. Keeping them on damp paper towel until they absorb their tails and start eating is recommended.
Newly Morphed Froglet Care: These froglets are small at metamorphosis and will need to be fed small feeder insects. We prefer using 1/8 to 1/4 inch crickets. Keeping froglets on paper towel until they have are 1+ inch can allow you to transfer your frog to a more permanent enclosure that they can live in for several months before needing an upgrade. Since it can be difficult for froglets to find food in a tank the size we recommend for adults, it is recommended to upgrade tank sizes as the frog grows.
