White’s treefrog coloration varies from jade green to blue (the most popular phase) to olive-green and olive-brown. Some specimens are sparsely or liberally spotted with "off-white." Attempts are being made by herpetoculturists to perpetuate and stabilize blue and spotted morphs. In keeping with their arboreal tendencies, vertically oriented terraria suit active White's treefrogs the best. They will use and appreciate firmly attached horizontal perches of a diameter that at least equals their bodies'. Elevated corkbark tubes and platforms, situated on either a horizontal or diagonal plane, are also favored by these frogs.
