Default Whites tree frogs

Being new to this hobby I would like to get some personal favorites on breeders or sellers of white tree frogs for when my set up is complete and habitable. I am also stumped by the different breeds. I can’t find any info or lists of different breeds but have heard names like honey, snowflake,baby blue etc in my research. Are there any knowledgeable hobbyists out there that can show and tell me on the different breeds

They arenít different breeds.

The Snowflake and SuperSnowflake were created by Bob owner of Sandfire Dragon Ranch.

I talked a while with him in person, told me it took 30 yrs of selective breeding to generate the Snows.

He also has some that only have butter yellow spots vs white spots.

Morphologically distinct lines of herptiles are typically termed 'morphs'. 'Breed' (used as a noun) is a similar term used to refer to other animals (e.g. dogs, cattle), and while it sometimes means roughly the same as 'morph', isn't used in herp circles. One reason for this is herp morphs are often the result of accidental genetic mutations, and are less frequently a cluster of traits arrived at by selective breeding (as is the common case in dogs, cattle, etc.). Sometimes people try to refer to herp species as 'breeds'; that usage isn't correct at all.

Searching online for 'White's tree frog morphs' will give you a fair amount of info, though I didn't see any sort of comprehensive listing of morphs.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.

Thank you that clears up a lot since I’m still obviously learning herp lingo

I'm not as familiar with the morph names but I will say if you get a chance there are some Gold White's Tree Frogs with Blue Eyes which look beautiful I've never seen a White's Tree Frog like that! The blue eyed specimen looks neat too! Like stated if you Google White's Tree Frog Morphs it will help. Here are some I know of but again I don't know the exact names on some so I will * them so that you can search them.

White's Tree Frog (wc)
White's Tree Frog (cb)
Blue Phase White's Tree Frog (cb)
Snowflake White's Tree Frog (cb)
*Golden White's Tree Frog (cb)
*Blue Eyed White's Tree Frog (cb)

If anyone has the name of the frogs at the bottom that would be useful and if there are more morphs add those too!
