Pet Post 9: Schlegel’s Green Tree Frogs

Almost done with these pet posts! Just one more after this. Today, our breeding pair of Schlegel’s Green Tree Frogs.

Honestly, the froggies are my housemate’s passion rather than mine, and though I come to see them as very cute – especially the silly pacman froggies – it takes me a little longer to bond with them, and these two are still very new.

They’re nice to look at, with cute feline faces and nice green skin, and have the very cute habit where the larger female carries the smaller male about during mating season. That’s how they got their names, Backpack (male) and, extrapolated, Handbag (female). Gender-role names, quite the opposite of my guppies! At first they were reluctant to eat but now it’s no problem, so I hope to enjoy their company more and more going forward.
