Default Phyllomedusa bicolor

Got in a couple healthy babies recently. Very excited to be able to grow these up both eating like champs in front of me.

Bicolor's do have quite an appetite and I think they are one of the few frogs

that prefer to be communal and some researchers have suggested that they

stress when removed from their established group. I have found mine like to

stay close to each other when sleeping.

Hi, I would love to see yours. I would think they stick together for safety in numbers type of deal.

I had one of these guys for over a decade. Makes me want to get another one! Such cute little fellows.

One of my all time favorite tree frogs. Where did you procure these from if I might ask?

I been seeing these as cb online for a few months now but wasn't willing to order any until LLL got them in stock being that I'm local I decided to get them. I got word that they are actually collected from the wild as tads and raised I'm not sure which is true. Either way they are doing great and growing

So sweet!

Yours probably aren't at that age yet, but is this species a loud caller?

I've never heard my previous one call but from what I've heard in videos it's a quick bark like call. I'd say whites are more annoying. Here's one I had a while back

You guessed why I was asking. I am not keen on a loud call, but otherwise I LOVE white's and their cute, gumby faces.

They're going strong and growing. Gonna try to feed them small Dubia for the first time.

If anyone has ever raised these guys I would love to know the growth rate on them. I definitely see them growing but very slow.

I have thought about this species a bunch. Please keep posting so we can share vicariously in your experience. I'm very keen on seeing how large they get (and how much they eat). I've yet to meet a frog that won't over chow if you let them. Did they take the Dubias yet?

Hi, glad to see your interest. They both went for the dubia however only one took them down on more than 1 occasion now. The other one seems to prefer smaller prey ATM so he's still eating fruit flies and small crickets. When I tried to feed him dubia he spit it out.

As long as the eye is all healed up the care wouldn't be any different. I'd watch how it eats and responds to its environment and go from there.
