SLS normally does affect the front legs. SLS stands for spindly leg syndrome. The most common reason that is believed to be the cause is leaning towards tadpole development at to high a temperature. I have never sen a case of this with the rear legs. Looks to be just a genetic defect.
Hind legs are linked to SLS in some of the literature but in all of the documented studies I'm aware of hindlegs were not involved without the front legs being involved.He leg does look kind of funny, but I can tell if it's folded or SLS, can someone with a little more experience help me out?
If his siblings are all looking normal and he is eating well , I would just enjoy Nemo and save worries for another day.I shall name it "Nemo"
Does this look like a case of SLS? The froglet gets around fine and is a healthy eater, though it doesn't climb as well as its siblings.
Patrick needs to update his website. That information is well out of date and wasn't even well supported to begin with in the literature. If your interested in the history behind SLS in the hobby I suggest checking out Kowalski,Edward; 2007; Spindly Leg Syndrome: A Review; Leaf Litter 1(2):28-31. For where the links between nutrition and SLS were made, back in 2009 and some of the early links were discussed here on the forums... see for example
Some of the cutting edge vets recommend doing so even if you aren't having issues with SLS or fertility. The reason for this is that a once a month or twice a month additional source of vitamin A in the form of a retinoic acid can help with other problems. People often forget that vitamin A is involved with a wide range of physiological system starting with the immune system all the way through the ability to feed (due to changes of the mucous producing cells) to reproduction.Is it a good idea to supplement with vitamin A once a month or so even if you aren't having issues with SLS?
