Frog Day two years from now, you won't be able to give those damn things away!

(Just kidding, that's a really nice wee one).

Very cool! I think people can tell that these will be available and maybe more affordable to anyone who wants some. Not that they're impossible to find or priced for only rich people, but I'd still rather wait until it's easier. I know right now you just have to be really persistent and get in on some early and wait.

Richard, rare or common doesn't matter to me. I'd definitely love to have a histrionica tank eventually!

Maybe I'll find someone to trade a trio of froglets for 40 azureus tadpoles haha. I can dream.

I always love seeing this species in person. An obligate egg feeder that looks like a normal sized terrestrial frog. Pretty cool.

Yeah it might take a while still to get to that point, mine are breeding like crazy and so far I only got one who's made it to the 7 month point - the good news is they're still going at it and the froglets are looking better and better

I've just moved three youngsters out to their own viv - (was getting tight in there with the breeding trio too) they have been in it a couple of weeks and are thriving - bold as really bold things.

I'll be adding some photos of it to our website over the weekend.

Just coming on for eight months the oldest - then a five month one and a two month one. I know there is this 'legend' about how long they stay with the adult frogs but I can't think of any reason why? I have seeded the new viv with gallons of springs and isos which they constantly hunt and the viv provides lots of space and secure out of sight areas areas for them - not that they use them. I moved all three at the same time - a 'saftey in numbers' sort of thing and all three hunker down in the largest of the broms every night and appear to be well settled.

One of the problems I find with leaving them in with the adults long term is feeding. Even when I target feed the froglets the adults just rush in and take. What you end up with is obese adults or malnourished froglets.

Really? Mine seem happy as clams all in there together and parents, froglets, sub adults will all eat pretty well next to each other. How large by gallons is your tank? I keep the kids in as long as possible, it is getting crowded in there though with 7 or more frogs at a time so some are coming out soon. We need to set this network up soon man so we can start trading stuff................
