The frog prince?
Among the 4,000+ species, the little green treefrog stands out as a popular pet. That’s due to its small size, friendly face, and low-maintenance lifestyle. Perched among the petals of a purple water lily, this treefrog is a common backyard animal in parts of the U.S. and was named the official state reptile of both Louisiana and Georgia. It’s not bad for a petite treefrog who likes flowers.
