Some mints i picked up last summer...They grew real fast for a couple of months and then stopped. They're now about a fat male azureus size...is that full grown? Anyways, I thought this was a good shot of their viv.

Wow, those mints are beautiful frogs. I keep thinking about getting some, but am afraid I could not produce enough food to keep them fed. I have always fed springs and fruitflies, may have to explore other (meatier) foods.

Lynn I feed my mints mels and bean beatles, they do fine and are fat and happy.
They eat alot more due to their size so I culture extra ffy's for them.

I believe the scientific name is Callosobruchus maculatus, others can correct me if I am wrong.

They are great feeders, esp. with larger frogs like tincs or terribs.

jdooley your mints look great!
