Default Hypsiboas punctatus

So... who's working with Hypsiboas punctatus? Use to be Hyla punctata. I just recieved 5 of them, set them up in a 47 column tank, with a waterfall. Beautiful frogs, more people need to work with them...

I will get pics up soon! Warning, I am not a good photographer...
Has anyone had any success breeding this species?

I had a trio until my A/C went out while I was out of town last summer...They were very cool animals. I'm not sure if you've observed it yet, but their colors change drastically from day to night. My males called every once in a while, but no breeding.

That's one of their cool traits It's pretty amazing how they change their color.
I have heard calling for the past few days, if I had to guess, I'd say I have 3.2.
Been feeding them crickets, any other good feeders for them?

Good to know that they ate the bean beetles. I plan on offering them the following: crickets, bean beetles, hydei, dubai roaches, lesser wax worm moths, and any other feeders that I think they might eat.

I really miss my punctata and their nocturnal red color changes. I kept mine in a 40 gallon tall tank with lots of larger leafed Philodendrons and Neoregelias with a large water bottom. I believe these guys breed like Dendropsophus sp. in flooded pools on floating vegetation. Fed them crickets and small roaches and males called nightly, believe i had a 3.2 as well. I never had any breeding success, only the occassional amplexing.

If anyone breeds them, put me on the list. They're high on my (Hyla) want list.

For me, they really relished the moths of wax worms.

Ok, here's some pics of when they arrived, one almost didn't make it, but I gave it some calcium solution, and it was fine within 10 minutes. I am not the best photographer, but here

Hopefully these do well for you, they are magnificent frogs and have a pretty cool call as well. Glad you were able to save that one. Did you get ventral shots of all? I was tried to see if I could see their internal structure to aid in sexing them, loose throat patches on males as well. Congrats!

Thanks everybody! Ok, the calcium solution, I bought at Mill's Fleet Farm, it's just Calcium Gluconate 23% solution. It worked wonders on that one glass frog! It went from looking like it was dead, to alive and well within 10-15 minutes.
