Johann, Arthur, Peter, Bruce, Shy Petunia

Listing Date: May 14, 2022

Birth Date: June 13, 2021

Breed: tree frog

Spayed/Neutered: No

Vaccination Status: tested and healthy, but frogs don't get vaccinated.

Physical Description: 1.5" Cope's gray tree frog. Very domestic, not wild.

Personality Description: These are very very sweet, charming, funny little guys -- and very hypoallergenic! They al will look at you expecting food. They often sleep during the day, but love to hunt bugs at night. Frogs are associated with the Zen tradition of sitting. Between that and the beautiful terrarium they live in (I can help you with that if you want), it's truly wonderful to have them near your desk if you are working at home all day. In addition, these guys have been around humans since hatching, and they are very tame. If they get scared, they are likely to jump to you instead of away from you, and they often look squarely toward you, which makes for very sweet photos. At dusk and night, and sometimes during the day,, you can see them climbing, jumping, and basically being cute.

History: I am moving and can't keep them (my co-inhabitant is squeamish), but the frogs are AWESOME.
