Default Dartfrogs shedding

It's early in the morning and you see your favourite dartfrog behaving strangely. Should you panic? No, it's probably just shedding it's skin, as shown in this nice video:

Im so glad this video was here. I though my frog had gotten tangeled up in something slimy. Then he jumped into a puddle, wiggled and was fine. He was just shedding. First time Ive seen it in person. Freaked me out but I know my kids are growing up.

Do the frogs eat their shed skin?

Nice vid. I've caught one of my Luecs shedding, did panic a little at first until I looked closer and realized what was going on.

Yes, frogs do shed daily indeed.
It's just that they do it in times most of us aren't watching

I don't think its necessarily their skin they shed. But the layer of mucus that coats their skin and protects it. My imitators do it every morning after lights on as well.

I don't know what to say....I have personally seen my frog choke on a strand of sphagnum moss (while attempting to eat a fly) and go through this exact same process...with the moss hanging out on his side like that too! After a couple of minutes, I worried he couldn't ingest it, so I literally pulled the moss from his mouth...everything that just happened looked exactly the same. Incredible. I guess if they could handle a big ass pile of skin like that, then I didn't really need to pull all the sphagnum out! Haha, nice vid!

Had the same experience with my salamanders, so I was a lot less freaked when one of my frogs did it

The thread is 7 years old, and the link is likely dead. If you have a question regarding dart frogs shedding, the general discussion forum or search function will probably contain the answers you seek.

Don't know why, but when I clicked on 'More', I got a FEEDBURNER error message as below:
Feed Address: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/frogr...-shedding.html

HTTP Error (Code) and Message: (404) null

I use Chrome to log onto Dandroboard.
I'd love to see this video!
