Default 5-6 Mo. Vit Calling!!!

I have a group of four 5-6 month old P. Vittatus (from Jeremy) that I have had for almost 3 months and they were just moved into their new viv 2 weeks ago.
I also have another viv with 2 Azureus, that are 10 months old and I have been playing the Mist King call recording for them, hoping I have a pair, they have been responsive but no calling yet. One night I played the recording for my Vits and have done so a couple times now since moving them. I thought I heard something last weekend, but chalked it to wishful thinking. Last night I was eating dinner in my chair right next to their viv, and I am 99.9% sure that I heard calling. I jumped up to spy on them and nothing (kind of like the frog in the old WB cartoon), I sat back down and heard it again, I tried spying on them from my chair but could see nothing.

So, is it possible that one is calling already or am I going mad?

Thanks
Shawn

P.S. They are still a bit timid and hide a lot, with the exception of one little dare devil.

He could have been nice to you and given you a slightly older one, or made a convenient mistake with the same outcome. From what I've read, these do often call well under a year, but you're right, that does sound young.

it is not uncommon to have frogs call when they are 6 month of age, i have gotten leucs calling at 4 as well as many other frogs at 6 months and even breed at this age as well, you just happen to have one that is maturing faster than others.

My Vittatus called at about that age. Once they get going, they have some of the best calls. They have several calls and often mimic other frogs that they hear.

Enjoy,

That's pretty standard for this species.
