Frog size question
 
2 Attachment(s)
I have 3 leucs that are all 1-2 years old. I went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens today and their Leucs were about 20% larger than mine. Is this type of variation natural or am I missing something? I couldn’t tell if there leucs was banded or nominate.

First picture is other frog, second picture is mine.

My frogs are in a 30 gal, plump, I supplement 2x week.

I do know that some locales/morphs of leucomelas are larger than others (this goes for many species in the hobby).

That may be the issue, although I am certain that I myself could not recognize a 20% difference in the size of anything unless those two things were side by side, or at least viewable in the same time frame. It could be that the viv at ABG made the frogs look larger (as when I get aquarium fish home from the LFS and am amazed to see how freakin' small they are...).

I think its possible for factors to influence size in many species of 'lower' chordates.

Growth can continue, albeit slowly in many species of fish and I have come across wildcaught herps that were significantly larger than standard description. To memory a few Indonesian litoria that were bigger than 'normal' and one in particular monster. In Florida I encountered frogs exceeding size description

Besides Time, bone development is encouraged by many factors, dietary and I suspect, natural light factors.

Oral D3 in large amounts will not make bigger organisms, but multiple holistic influences probably can.
