At Woburn there is a small group of White's tree frogs living in their custom designed terrarium. To meet the needs of these big frogs their enclosure features specialised heating and lighting to mimic their natural habitat, as well as a special misting system which automatically provides a fine mist of water in the terrarium at intervals to keep the high humidity they need.
