Terribilis Health: Yellow vs Orange, Mint
 
I love Terribilis and am in the process of setting up an appropriately dryer enclosure. After spending many hours on this forum and contacting some breeders who no longer have these, I am putting it out to you. Is it possible to successfully keep these frogs for years without foot rot and gout? Is one color healthier than another? I read here that Yellows are more prone to foot rot for example. Can anyone shed some light to help me decide which to share my life with? Many folks seem to have them but no one says for how long. Your input would be most appreciated.

For that matter, the Care Sheet here says Mints are more common in the US due to fungal infections in Yellows and Oranges. But that relates to imports. Is this the same situation in CB frogs?

Are Bi-Colors hardier in general? Do they seem to have the same outgoing personality?

I would love to know any experiences or insight you may have. Thanks very much.

I've seen foot rot on bicolor and terribilis of them, but more in terribilis. As for the morphs, no real difference, IME. Just make sure your setup doesn't become muddy, and give them places to climb to dry their feet!

First, thank you for the reply. I appreciate it. I plan on a drier viv but it seems no one here has successfully raised them for years no matter what. That's sad...

Huh? There are plenty of people around who have kept terribilis without problems, even bred them. I have three yellows, and I haven't had any issues with them. Keep them in the 70's, make sure they have some drier spots as previously mentioned. Its not that difficult.

This is definitely sampling bias. You don't hear as much from the people that aren't having any problems because they don't need any help :-) I imagine that if you posted a question asking how many people were successfully keeping and breeding terribilis, you would get lots folks saying that they are keeping them without issue, including me. I have 3 mints in a tank that isn't terribly dry and have had minimal issues with them. The only things I have observed come from them having little wounds associated with their aggressive feeding habits. Mine will run into things because they are so excited to feed. These minor scrapes have always gone away in a few days. Otherwise, I find them to be a much easier frog to keep than most of my other species and morphs. I never have to worry about them jumping out when I open the glass and they are never hard to find to count.

Best of luck,

Mark

I have had yellow, orange, mints, and bicolors for about 10 yrs. I have the most problems with mints. No problems with the other 3. Mostly the mints just do not breed well for me.

I have some orange and mints was told 3-4 months oow when I got both but the mint whets twice the size of the orange wondering this is the mints are older do they grow faster

My mints are substantialy larger then my oranges, they are both adults and of breeding age for reference.
