Default Are these normal froglets??

Out of 5 froglets, these two have a funny bump in the tail area. Is this normal or is it a deformity?? They are 4 months out of water. Thank you in advance for any comments.

They look ok to me. I remember my luecs having a more defined point on their rear than other frog species. Not as defined as yours though. The first frog looks a little lean which may be exacerbating the appearance. Perhaps the second as well, but tough to tell with just the one pose.

How big a tank are you housing your frogs in?
What is your feeding regimen and supplementation routine?

I know they say that luecs make great group frogs, but I've had to separate a few within my old group a few times due to stress. I never observed outright aggression, but on three occasions I had to remove one of the group (not the same one) to rehabilitate it and put some weight back on them. They bounced right back within a couple of months.

I have a ~8 month old leuc with a similar appearance. His "tail" is a lot more noticeable than his tank mates though thinking about it now I wonder if its exasperated by the fact that its yellow whereas his tank mates I think have black back there so theirs doesnt look like it sticks out as far...

He's a perfectly healthy frog though, and your guy is probably ok too!

Thank you for your response. These are froglets from my pair. The froglet on the right I sold to a teenanger who messages me with questions frequenly. He is taking very good care of his new babies. We have discussed tank size, feeding, and supplements. When he asked me about the tail bump, I messaged the 2nd person I sold the froglets to. He sent me Back the pic on the left. I do appreciate your response. I obtained my frogs as sub adults and never saw either of my Leucs as froglets. I agree the one froglets looks very thin. I will address it with the "dad".

Again, thank you your response. It was greatly appreciated.

Looking at it now and I agree the frog in the first pic does look thin, it was hard to tell on my phone until I saw it was pointed out. Not sure if it's just a photo quality issue though

It's definitely thin, but without a few more pictures in different poses, the level of emaciation is tough to determine.
