    Recommended Vivarium Size: Amazon Milk frogs are large frogs and will need a larger habitat.  As a tree frog, they will want a tall enclosure.  Exo Terra Glass Terrarium 18x18x24 or 18x18x36 are good for groups up to four.  Amazon Milk Frogs need access to fresh clean water.


    Temperature: Range of 75 F to 85 F, are recommended temperatures.  


    Humidity: Range of 70– 75%, Mission Tree Frogs can tolerate a wide range in humidity.  Ventilation is important in a tree frog habitat.  Leave half of the top as a screen.


    Size: Adult Milk Frogs can be 2.5-4 inches in size. Females are larger.


    Life-Span: Milk Frogs are capable of living 6-10 years in captivity under ideal conditions, although a lifespan of 8 years is more common.


    Feeding: Amazon Milk Tree Frogs are eating crickets.


    Sexing: Finn's Frog Farms sells unsexed juvenile frogs, least three months out of the water.  


    Color/Pattern: Milk frogs are teal in color on their body and feet with dark brown/black stripes and big blotches on their head and back.  They have stunning eyes that are golden with a black pupil and lines out from it.


    Social Behavior: These frogs do well housed in groups.  They can outcompete each other with food.  Make sure each frog is getting enough to eat.  Finn's Frog Farm strongly recommends against housing different species/morphs of dart frogs. 


    Breeding:  Amazon Milk Frogs will lay eggs that can be above or submerged in water.  The best way to breed captive bred Amazon Milk Tree Frogs is the use of a rain chamber.
