Default First darts- R. Uakarii

After months of waiting, I've finally received my R. Uakarii "Gold Legged". Pictures do not do these little fellas justice. I'm utterly in love with the metallic sheen to their orange bits, and tbh I was expecting yellow legs, but these suckers shine and dazzle.

They've been in their new home about an hour now, and seem to be getting settled in. 1 of them has gone to hide, but the one by the marcgravia seems to be loving his new digs.

Your pictures don't seem to load for me for some reason. Weird.

I love my "standard" uakarii. Such fun little frogs.

Hmm.. I had used the embed picture function but it doesnt seem to be working... I did edit the OP though so itll hopefully at least link. Good catch!

Out of curiosity, are you able to hear the call of yours? They both seem to be warbling their throat sacks, but I'm not hearing anything.

They're pretty quiet. It sounds like a buzz. I can distinctly pick the sound out when the male is calling.

Well, all I can do is wait and see then since I'm not hearing any calling, so I'm gonna hold out hope for a pair. Thanks fishingguy!

More for me than for yall:

The slightly smaller of the 2 has distinct hip bones showing, and is in a general sense "more narrow". The other is ever so slightly wider in the stomach, and seems to make a habit of vibrating one of its back toes.

I'm trying not to hover over them so they can get settled in, but its proving rather difficult.

I heard a very faint noise I thought was tinnitus, but after a moment I worked out it was coming from the viv.

So I got down to eye level, and the one on the right was on top of his ledge seemingly calling away. Unfortunately he hopped down while I was trying to get this pic


And here he is crawling around. This is the leaner one of the two



The other one seems to be more elusive so far


Apologies for the potato quality pics, my phones zoom isn't the best.

Still good news so far, then, Jaime! Until you see them both calling, it's all good :-)

Some observations:

Unexpectedly, the room fan (maybe 5' away) really triggers the male calling. I've tried shutting it off to hear better and he clams right up, but chatters away within seconds of it kicking on. It might just be the time of day when I turn on the fan but illndefinitelynne watching for this.

Ive also reached the conclusion I wasted time escaping the viv, seeing as how the mister tubing is the best seat in the house

Sounds sometimes get frogs calling. At one point I had many species of frogs and certain species would call to fans or knocking sounds. Probably wavelengths we cannot hear. Yep frogs chose the oddest spots to sit too haha.

I had a White’s tree frog as a kid that would get set off playing Goldeneye.

Can’t wait to see more of their gorgeous fancy leggies.
