Help! Need tree frog ID and care suggestions!


New Member
I've been considering getting a tree frog for a little while, but my timeline was moved up today when I saw one on craigslist that looked like it needed a good home, and quickly. The poor thing was in a 12"x12"x18" exoterra with only a moss mat, a corner bowl, one mopani wood piece and a HEAT ROCK! The guy assured me that the frog was "just a green tree frog," and I couldn't get a good enough view of the pics to confirm differently.

Well, the guy got here (delivered to my door) and told me that this "green tree frog" came in a box of bananas from BRAZIL just under two months ago, and he found it while unloading them at the grocery store where he works. Considering I was standing there holding the terrarium and about to hand the guy my money, I couldn't exactly turn the poor thing away. Sooo... now I have an unidentified, "wild-caught" green frog that I need to identify in case it has care requirements that differ from the usual pet green tree frog, Hyla cinerea.

Please help, even if just links I can use to identify this little guy myself?
