Default Blue Red Eyed Tree Frog ...Normal or new morph?

I bought this juvenile 19 weeks ago from a guy on craigslist when it was just a very tiny froglet. The guy I purchased from said that the parents are "blue". I sought info on it and was told the color is normal in baby froglets and it will change with age. This frog still has the teal/cyan color to it months later, has peach toe pads and is only getting more beautiful with age. Could I have something here or is this normal?

you could potentially have something however, I have a few CB adults myself and some of them are just as blue. I have noticed that adults from the Nicaragua line seem to have more blue in them.

Could be a morph, however lots of tree frog species have different colors as part of their natural variation and due to different aspects in their keeping and environment. Humidity, diet, stress levels all play key to the color of their skin.

Good looking frog though!

is not a morph, just a color variation, there are others as well such as the lutiano, which is a form of albinism, saw an interesting one at frogday this past weekend that looked almost white.

Yeah, they look like Nicaragua lines I had for a while. Neat to have though!

I know the frogs of which you are speaking of and if I am correct, his was an adult more blue than most that held her color. She passed of disease, so you may want to have yours tested if you know who I am referring to. If so, his was WC.

Beautiful frog!

Joshsfrogs carries a lovely line of Nicaraguans (CB) who have a minty-green hue and a more purplish blue to their sides. Very pretty.
