  1. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Yesterday morning I saw two frogs acting differently (they were facing opposite directions and their bottoms were touching). About 5cm to the right I could see seven eggs in the leaf litter (right against the front glass- this was pure luck). I have a group of leucs so I thought I would pull...
  2. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Sorry if this is redundant to any previous posting—I searched but could not find a clear question response. I acquired a Leuc recently. The previous owners said it was about a year old and were getting selling it because they never saw it in their terrarium. Since it's been with me it has...
  3. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hey everyone! I've had my D. leucomelas for about 6 months. I am unsure of true age, but I'm assuming this one has to be around 8-10 months old. I know it can be hard to visually sex these guys, but I wanted some input from you more experienced owners! Based on the visual guide on the Josh's...

    Good day everyone! I have done some searching but can't find much that describes the activity levels of leucomelas and am hoping to learn a bit from others' observations. Mine are approaching 9 months now and 4 weeks in my vivarium and they seem to be as active as my cats, i.e. not very: lots...

    Hey, my name is Colin and I've recently decided to take the plunge into the hobby and get some frogs at last week's Repticon in Charlotte. I've been keeping various tree frogs, fish,marbled/red/mud salamanders, spotted turtles, musk turtles and painted turtles over the years, so I would like to...

    I have a three month old exo terra 24x18x18 vivarium, built to hold a few Dendrobates leucomelas 'Fine Spot' - Bumble Bee dart frogs (although that can change anytime). I'm not planning on having frogs in there until the plants are fully established, so maybe in 2 or 3 more months. This is my...

    I've had my viv up for about 4 months so I figured it was time to stop lurking. I have 4 unsexed, juvy Leucs that are voracious eaters. Its a 36x18x24 Exo with a false bottom, ABG, leaf litter. Using a monsoon since it came with the Exo and I only have one viv. Lights are a Finnex 24/7...
  9. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hi guys, Just a quick question on my dart frog's behaviour. I have 2 dart frog vivs with a pair of d.leucomelas and a male/female pair of r.imitator 'Tarapoto'. The males of both species will call every single morning sometimes throughout the day. I have provided them with bromeliads and...

    I had a spare 16 gallon aquarium lying around at home and have recently converted it into a new dart frog setup. I am thinking of getting a pair of D. Leucomelas. Waiting for temp and humidity gauges to come in the post, what are your guys thoughts? I already keep a pair of Rantiomeya imitator...
  11. Breeding, Eggs & Tadpoles
    Hello, I am new to the world of tadpole rearing and very new to this forum (just joined this afternoon). I am volunteering in a herpetology lab where the resident leucomelas frogs have been laying like crazy. I finally had two tadpoles hatched out and set up, but both died today. One had been...
  12. General Discussion
    I have a pair of leucs that are about two and a half years old. This morning I noticed them both acting somewhat strange. They climbed to the top of the wall of the vivarium and started lunging toward the ceiling over and over. Here is a video. I thought maybe I under-fed them last night, so I...
  13. General Health & Disease Treatment
    Hi everyone. I have a leuc (Denny) that isn't holding itself up very well. His front legs are at 90 degree angles, rather than the obtuse angle (sorry, math teacher) that my healthier frog has. I've had him since last Christmas, and this is a recent thing. He gets FFF's dusted alternately...
  14. Food & Feeding
    So I have my leucs in the classroom (4th grade), and went to feed them before the kids got there and saw that flies had escaped my culture. Dreading the thought of my principal's reaction, I quickly squished the escapees and inspected the culture for cracks. Seeing none, I then saw in horror...

    Hello everyone. I want to show my last job. I spent a few weeks building a pine table, varnishing them and finishing my two leucomelas and azureus terrariums. As you see, to avoid the potential stress of the frogs, I painted the unnecessary sides of the terrariums (Except the back to see the...
  16. General Health & Disease Treatment
    He (I think?) is far skinnier than the other two. He climbs and hops around constantly, and engages more than the other two with things moving (flies, follows my finger when I trace it on the outside of the tank). But he looks almost skeletal, while the others are plump. He eats as much as...

    So my brother, a herpetologist gave me 3 D. leucomelas frogs for Christmas. I previously had them approved by my boss and this has been planned. However, I'm seeing these fancy vivariums and am worried that I put the cart before the horse, or the frogs before the vivarium. My kids won't be a...

    Hi everyone, So I just wanted to share a little info with you guys about my Banded Leucs. I have two lines one from Dart Frog Connection (DFC) and the other from Josh's Frogs(JFs). I've noticed some differences in the two lines: The DFC line are MUCH bolder than the JF's. The JF's...

    Hi everyone, I am quite new to the hobby... I have had darts before... 5 D. auratus (1 male, 3 female, 1 nobody could figure out), in a 75 gallon long tank. It went really well! For about 8 months that is... Than my male for some reason just died, than it all went down hill from there. Three...

    We have an ever growing frog room here at the LLL breeding center, and I just wanted to share a couple pics from the tanks here. Also including a few pics from my "desk cage" with campana auratus :) We've experimented with a few options in cage decor. We use foggers on all of the cages, and I...
