JP, what a neat pet! You need to put pics for us, is it the dark green or browner color? What do you feed it? Do they have packaged food or do you have to catch or buy things? Do they need heat like reptiles? Can you dress em? They would look cute in little hats... :evil: Inquiring mind wants to know! Jody
Sorry to highjack your post first of all John, anyway, Jody, jr is about the size of a walnut right now and he's kind of a dark lime green with a lighter green almost yellow stripe down the middle (which they lose as they mature).
I've had him two days now, the first night we fed him crickets and he just ate and ate and ate them crickets!!!
The juveniles can be fed every other day and the adults about twice to three times a month. As they get bigger they are usually fed things like fish, crickets, earthworms, meat and mice.
As for heat I have what's called a basking light I got from the pet store that can be kept on 24/7 without harm.
I have him in a 40gl long aquarium and a soil mulch mix for substrate that was suggested at the pet store and I added moss on one end.
I mist the aquarium twice daily and keep a large shallow saucer filled with water on one end, this morning he was in the saucer enjoying the water like frogs do.
