Default Hypsiboas Picturatus info

Does anyone have any husbandry information on the Hypsiboas Picturatus? I've searched high and low and cant find any.

My understanding is that these having been exported in a long time and they are very rare in the hobby. Understory has some available and I'm very fascinated by them, but cant find any husbandry info.

Thank you,

I got a little bit of info back from Understory that stated the follow...

...Wikiri has informed us that the care of them is the same as A.
spurelli. From this I can infer that the care should fall in line
with the parameters with whioch mosts leaf frogs are successfully
kept. So think a red eyed treefrog enclose, with a little more space

I am glad to see some more interest in these guys. They were supposed to be here in time for yesterday's shipment. It doesn't sound like there will be a large amount coming in this first round either.

I will be getting them, and am curious how else plans to work with them....
I will be putting them in something around 75g. or more. What ever my wife will let me get away with

Found a habitat shot I like

Life History, Abundance, Activity, and Special Behaviors
Uncommon according to Bolívar et al. (2004) but can be locally abundant. Ortega-Andrade et al. (2010) reported that this nocturnal species was one of the most abundant amphibians in forested areas having streams or waterfalls, near Bilsa Biological Station (Esmeraldas Province), Ecuador. At Anchicayá, Colombia, two individuals were found on leaves overhanging streams, at 40 and 200 cm above the water respectively (Vargas et al. 2000).

I realize its an old post but just found the info & decided to share.
