After months of waiting, I've finally received my R. Uakarii "Gold Legged". Pictures do not do these little fellas justice. I'm utterly in love with the metallic sheen to their orange bits, and tbh I was expecting yellow legs, but these suckers shine and dazzle.

They've been in their new home about an hour now, and seem to be getting settled in. 1 of them has gone to hide, but the one by the marcgravia seems to be loving his new digs.

Your pictures don't seem to load for me for some reason. Weird.

I love my "standard" uakarii. Such fun little frogs.

Hmm.. I had used the embed picture function but it doesnt seem to be working... I did edit the OP though so itll hopefully at least link. Good catch!

Out of curiosity, are you able to hear the call of yours? They both seem to be warbling their throat sacks, but I'm not hearing anything.

They're pretty quiet. It sounds like a buzz. I can distinctly pick the sound out when the male is calling.

Well, all I can do is wait and see then since I'm not hearing any calling, so I'm gonna hold out hope for a pair. Thanks fishingguy!

More for me than for yall:

The slightly smaller of the 2 has distinct hip bones showing, and is in a general sense "more narrow". The other is ever so slightly wider in the stomach, and seems to make a habit of vibrating one of its back toes.

I'm trying not to hover over them so they can get settled in, but its proving rather difficult.

I heard a very faint noise I thought was tinnitus, but after a moment I worked out it was coming from the viv.

So I got down to eye level, and the one on the right was on top of his ledge seemingly calling away. Unfortunately he hopped down while I was trying to get this pic


And here he is crawling around. This is the leaner one of the two



The other one seems to be more elusive so far


Apologies for the potato quality pics, my phones zoom isn't the best.

Some observations:

Unexpectedly, the room fan (maybe 5' away) really triggers the male calling. I've tried shutting it off to hear better and he clams right up, but chatters away within seconds of it kicking on. It might just be the time of day when I turn on the fan but illndefinitelynne watching for this.

Ive also reached the conclusion I wasted time escaping the viv, seeing as how the mister tubing is the best seat in the house

Sounds sometimes get frogs calling. At one point I had many species of frogs and certain species would call to fans or knocking sounds. Probably wavelengths we cannot hear. Yep frogs chose the oddest spots to sit too haha.

I had a White’s tree frog as a kid that would get set off playing Goldeneye.

Can’t wait to see more of their gorgeous fancy leggies.

That's so wild!

Will a belly pic do instead?


I hear calling :D :D

Look closely at the brom

It's been awhile so I'm gonna share some updates. This is the current state of the tank as of this morning.


I was able to get a piece of cork that fits much better in the area I needed it to. The purple brom here has started a second pup (just barely breaking its base), and dying back pretty hard. I'm not too hopeful either pup will be large enough to survive at the rate its started dying. The slugs have been ravaging the first pup.


Here is a rare shot of both of them out and about at the same time.



A few days ago, these tiny jelly masses popped up in one of the broms. I'm still not entirely convinced they are eggs, I expected small but not the size of a melano. (3 o'clock in the center)

There are 2 more a bit further in the brom, I just couldn't get a decent picture. I'm horrible with a cam and settled for the one okay shot. Lol

It's been awhile so here is an update on the tank


I tried to use some kodama to hide where silicone was peeking through, but I'm not too happy with the results. It does seem to have brought a second wind of new growth to the Dusk Moss I put in forever ago.

This is from a month or so back, but it's the one shot I've been able to get with em both.


The male seems to have settled in and is comparably way more active than he had been. I noticed this change about the time I started maintaining 74f, and out of superstition haven't changed it.

Found a little clutch of eggs earlier today, and was able to carefully scoop them off using a leaf.

Unfortunately I'm battling a major slug infestation, so I pulled them out. Over the last month and a half or so, I've seen some moldy egg jelly so I've been watching like a hawk. It's hard to tell for sure but I think there are maybe 3 or 4 here.

I'll likely be throwing up a build thread in a few weeks for my growout. I'm contemplating a silicon less approach to a cork bark mosaic.

Ik these pics are horrible, sorry for that.

Congratulations on the eggs, I hope they turn out for you.

My group laid a clutch of eggs (2 fertilized eggs) in a black film canister (the film canister was in the leaf litter, on about a 45 degree angle) a few weeks ago, both eggs have hatched into tads.

Oh that's pretty exciting! My frogs seem to spend a lot of time underneath their film cans, but I dont catch them in there too often. Theres actually a little straight shouldered jam jar in there I tried on a whim, that they seem to prefer over the film cans (and has the added bonus of magnification!).

I'm happy to hear that you've got some tadpoles growing up. I understand everyone kinda has their own approach to tadpole care, would you mind sharing what you've found successful with your uakarii?

I put mine in a deli cup with water and an oak leaf, feed them a bit of tadpole food every day or two
