Hey all,
I just wanted to post a picture of some blue sided leaf frogs I purchased a little while back from Todd Kelly. They have been doing quite well surviving my second move this year - this time from NY, to Joplin, MO. Sadly their terrarium didn't fair so well and upon arrival I found it shattered into a thousand pieces along with two of my other terrariums:(. If these frogs have been on your wish list I would highly suggest you get some.
Todd has been an excellent help with the many questions and concerns that I have had.

Well here are the pics

I'm not sure of the frogs exact age but I have a 4.4 adult group. The males are about 2.5 inches and the females are about 3 inches. They spend most of the day sleeping but when it starts getting dark out I will hear an occasional chirp.
During my move from NY to Joplin, MO I transported the frogs in 32 oz containers with in a 1.1 ratio. I placed paper towels in each container and wet them down with distilled water. When I arrived one of the males was taking a piggy back ride :p !

Nice, I'm assuming these guys get nothing but large crickets as adults right? I have always wondered how these guys go diet wise but I just assumed crickets. Logan

About your question Logan, so far I have been feeding crickets but I know that there are many other food items that they eat. I believe that Todd mentioned that he knew someone that fed roaches and a variety of other food times.

A book that I have found to be very helpful is:
"Tree Frogs" (Complete herp care) by Devin Edmonds

Amazon.com: Tree Frogs (Complete Herp Care) (9780793828944): Devin Edmonds: Books

Hope you find it helpful.

It's pretty good...definitely worth buying. Lots of the info in it is common knowledge to frog keepers, but sometimes its nice to have a book instead of the interweb. You can always find older frog books used on Amazon for super cheap, I've gotten some out-of-print stuff from the early 90's and some harder to find stuff for a penny each (no joke...one cent). Works out to $4 after $3.99 shipping, hard to beat that.

@ Seth K: those are some sweet looking annae...I almost bought some about 3 years ago, your pics are making me wish I had;)

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you Chris. I seem to have lost the fts I had. My brother in NY is sending me a few he took so I'll try to get them posted as soon as he does.
