as stated i have a pair of cobalt's and when one came out of it's hiding hole today came out with a slime over both front arms and was opening and closing its mouth in a weird way, no pics but some advice would be great on what it was. once it hopped around it seemed to disappear.

Don't worry, you witnessed it shedding :D
The frogs shed every day, old skin will be eaten as it comes of the body.

Perfectly normal, you just don't see it every day.

Yeah. Consider yourself lucky. I havn't seen any of my frogs shed yet in two years in the hobby.
well let me tell you, when i first saw it i really panicked and the oh [email protected]#t meter went off, then i had to go to work after i posted the thread and wondered all day if they would be alive when i got home. once i read the posts the meter went off.

I'm definitely glad I've read about this because if I ever saw this I know I would freak out and panic like crazy. I even found a vid of it so at least I'll know what it looks like when I encounter it and so I won't go crazy and think my frog is dying.



Just to clarify exactly what you saw I think the vids help.

the AZUREUS is doing exactly what mine was, but i didn't have the info i have now and thought what did i do to possibly kill my cobalt?
thanks to all for posting as it was a GREAT HELP!!!!!

you all are probably missing it because your not watching them at the right time. they tend to shed in the early morning IME. i personally miss a LOT of activity since much of occurs in the morning (while im fast asleep)
