I think you should get some. Why else are we in this hobby? Surely not to become broke buying awesome frogs...

P.S. I've heard the white eventually fades into a light brown as the frogs get older.

I need to stop looking at photos. I don't have any more room after this last group that is coming.

I definitely think you should get some though...

Growing up my friend had a dumpy tree frog and she used to make clothes and dress him for pictures. It was hilarious. These guys are so cute, I may be tempted to make them clothes, and do ridiculous photo shoots.

Milk Frogs are apparently right behind Dumpies for being tolerant of handling and even somewhat social. They do get BIG though. I think adult size is ~5". Real plant crushers! That was actually going to be my target for the vivarium build I'm currently working on, until I found that out. I decided to go smaller.

I believe the Verm. are more readily available...the Ulus are a little more difficult to find...They, the Ulus, have not been successfully bred in the U.S. to this point...but hey...I love a challenge. Trying to replicate the flooding that the Ulus use to amplex in underground mud, and the flushing of the eggs, or pehaps tads at that point...to a point where they mature...that is the mystery of the process. How do you replicate the "mud" but not have the substrate rot?? I'm glad you like the frog...the males are about 1 1/2 inches...females about 2 1/2--since they are from Tanzania, the breeding season starts around Oct.--so I do have a little time yet...

Wow that would be cool to try to simulate. It's gotta be possible. Like maybe have a really tight mesh for the mud to drain slowly but not let particles past and have a misting system in place so the water doesn't saturate the mud too quickly. I'm sure if there's constant water flow the mud won't go bad

The water could go into a sump system that gets recycled in the misting system

I believe that this is what adult milk frogs look like, the color get substantially subdued:


I think clown tree frogs retain their coloration?


My favorite tree frog has got to be Centrolene Ilex, ghost tree frogs:

To my knowledge they aren't available in the hobby currently. I did some digging through the boards and I found this:

There is sure a lot of of work to do with the Centrolenids, there are some challenging aspects to them, but that is of course what makes them so interesting.

We have some tads that seem to be doing well that are now about 16 months old, with the first signs of legs beginning to appear. We also have several that are morphing now, or will very shortly that will have been about 6 months in the water. I am getting the feeling that somewhere between 6-8 months should be about normal for these guys. I think as the frogs mature if they are well grown, nurtured etc, they should produce stronger clutches of eggs with resulting tads that are not too delicate, and that metamorphose in a reasonable amount of time (6-8 months). I think the first few clutches we had were from adults who were really just a little young, or who did not have proper nutrient reserves. Like with most frogs, I feel strongly that closer attention to health and care of adults will go a long way in mitigating problems in the larval/developmental stage.

We will be finally sending out the first few valerioi in July, and small numbers hopefully somewhat consistently after that, slowly attacking the waitlist. Froglets are fairly delicate, and we need to make sure they are well grown so that nobody has any unnecessary disappointments with these. All we will be offering for the time being are valerioi. We do have fleischmanni, but only males unfortunately atm.

S. ilex is indeed a fabulous species, unfortunately has been very problematic for Brian at the larval stage.

Thanks for the patience of everyone who has been waiting patiently for these guys. They will be worth the wait, and best of all is 50% of the sale of each of the valerioi we sell will go right back to Brian and the CRARC.
It seems maybe UE is working with them? Although he could be talking about Sachatamia ilex (which i do not know if it is a different species)

Smile Re: How about them Milk Frogs

I raise Amazon Milk Frogs and my breeding groups coloration has never changed, they are a lovely teal blue /gray and black. Right now I have 3 clutches hatching out . And my Reticulated Glass frogs are settling in after there arrival this week from Understory ... will get some pics up as soon as we get some of these tads settled in bins and the other groups of frogs in breeding chambers.

I saw on page 1 talk about the ruby eyed moon frog. Can someone direct me to a good supplier or these in the USA? In addition Ive been looking for a supplier of many species. Most sites only have a few, and many times out of stock...
Thanks for any help!
Greg

I have a group of Ulus, and am still pondering how to set up the right conditions for a breeding tank... These frogs come from Tanzania and you have got to keep in mind that probably every frog has cytrid...so be prepared to isolate, test, treat, and retest...after a quarantine period... I was very lucky to come across them from four different sources...and have enjoyed the limited viewing of them because of them being nocturnal...but I "talk" back to the boys when they call as I am at the computer....they will answer, and I recognize each of them by their sound--but of course cannot see which one is which. They love to soak in a large dish, and when I clean the dish or muck around in the viv, they climb my arm...love 'em. Good luck if you find them...
