Default H picturatus

Hi everyone,

I decided to take a few quick shots of the H picturatus I received from UE this last shipment. They are AMAZING frogs. I just used my phone for the photos so the quality does not do them justice. I haven't seen anyone posting about these guys and wanted to let everyone know how fantastic they are in case others would like to scoop them up next time around. Take a look at the eyes!! Enjoy!

Nick

Nick, they look good! You heard any calling yet? This is going to determine where their viv ends up. How is the viv coming?

Thanks very much! They're doing great and yes, I've heard some calling. Not a ton, but some. I haven't really sprayed them heavily or anything. Viv is coming, I'm still working on it.

How are yours doing? Any pics? Is your viv done?

Mine are still in a tub as well. The viv still needs to be put together. Two have been hanging out together, but I have only heard attempts to call. Now that work is slowing down, I can concentrate on the few projects that need permanent homes... I will try for some good shots soon

The intensity of the brown coloration on their dorsal changes a lot depending on humidity. Do you notice that yours change color or are they all pretty much brown or very light?

I have noticed a variation of the shading, but the one with the darker brown won't get as light as my lightest tan. Though I haven't been misting a ton either. Just feeding them lots. I did notice with the two that hang out that, that there appears to be a difference in their hind leg length... May be nothing, but would love to figure a way to sex these guys.

Beautiful. How many did you get, and how do you plan to set them up?

Exactly the same as mine as far as color goes. To sex them, try to look at the body length. The longer ones are the females.

Kind of what I thought, just wasn't sure where these guys are age wise. That's good, since all I hope for is (at least)one female,and two males. I heard a couple of peeps from the room but my Nyctixalus Pictus are worked up lately (calling all night). So not sure

LOL!! That is funny!


Since asked. I got 4 and plan on a 24"x24"x36" custom viv (still being built). Have the sump, plants, and background ready for the build once it's ready for me.

Very nice! They look nice and happy! Thanks for sharing. We mind as well share our ideas for setup so that people can use this thread in the future. What are you doing for their setup?

My plans are custom viv (24x24x36) stand/canopy. I am calling in a few favors to get that done, as I blew all my $ on the frogs. The wife really likes them, so I 'get' build a show viv. That said, it will be mostly self contained (misting, and sump to filter the water).

I left a dozen mossy frog tads in with my group, and really enjoyed watching them morph out in viv. This is hopefully the plan with these guys too
