...it's not that easy being green

This post shares a little of my love for nature's bounty. Yes, it's a long way from paper-crafts and other creative projects but I'm sure you'll enjoy seeing the new addition/s to our household.

Firstly, this is the terrarium that became a "home in waiting" for the past few weeks, while we waited patiently for a licence from National Parks and Wildlife of N.S.W.

When this paperwork finally arrived we were able to go pick up the four "babies" we'd ordered from a licenced breeder, and bought them back home only last night.

These Centralian Tree Frogs are just four months old. This species originates from the MacDonnell Ranges of Central Australia and will grow upto 110 mm (3-4 inches). Their diet currently is three small crickets or wood-roaches, each 1-2 days.

If you're interested to know quite what it takes to set up a frog terrarium, all my learning curve details are documented in this article on Helium website.

Awww, look at those beautiful little guys!! I LOVE them!! It's wonderful to see you've prepared a lovely home for them. Bless you for that, as it breaks my heart to see some who cruely confine them in poor conditions. I love all of God's little creatures. Do they have names yet???
