Is the frog in this state at all times?
I ask because auratus will sometimes puff up and click as a defensive reaction to being surprised or scared. This behavior is more common in shyer morphs such as green and white, ancon hill, capria, campana etc, but all auratus can and will do this if sufficently surprised, it's just most people keep the more bold morphs so the behavior is rarely seen in captivity.

Here's a pic of my green and whites displaying this behavior when I inadvertently surprised them lifting their cocohut during tank cleaning.
