So, I recently purchased what was a probable pair of D. Tinctorius Inferalanis. I got them home and immediately both started calling. Soon after watching them both call for a while I watched in amazement as they grabbed and tossed eachother around in what seemed like a fight. Doesn't that break the rules a bit? I thought two females would fight, but two calling males? Anyone else seen this before?

I've found that there's no hard and fast rule when it comes to this. I've seen males fight with other males, females fight with females, and even a female fight with a male. The only way to be absolutely sure of what you have is to see a male call or to see the female back-patting or laying eggs.

And even that's not always a sure thing. I watched my 'pair' of tincs courting, complete with calling from one and following and back-patting from the other. Some 6 months or so down the road, the 'back-patter' started calling too. :D

Oh, wow...and I thought I had it figured out. Lol!

So, now we're down solely to egg laying and calling...and I've read reports that even female Terribs can make some sort of call.

Aggression amongst D. tinctorius is complicated. That's why they are best kept in 1.1 pairs.

Good luck with them, Richard.

I have 3 Males about a year old, that i bought as froglets and no fighting yet. If a group of frogs are raised together as froglets there is a greater chance that they will get along, verus introducing two matures together.
