About Us

The White’s tree frog gets its name man who first discovered them in 1790, John White. They are often called the Australian tree frog, or the Dumpy tree frog due to their ‘dumpy’ appearance!

Here at Woburn we have a small group of three 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.
