Pictures would help... Plus filling out these questions

Answer all these questions as best you can (cut and paste -- please don't quote because that makes it hard to read the responses):

1. What species ? How long have you had the frog(s) and where did you acquire them ?

2. What are your temperatures (day and night - highs and lows) and how do you measure those temperatures? Does the vivarium have any supplemental heating, and if so, what type?

3. What lighting is on the enclosure (brand, type, wattage) and does the lighting add heat to the vivarium?

4. What is the Humidity like (percentage or guesstimate)? What type of water are you using? What is your misting procedure (automated or hand mister, how long and how often)?

5. Describe your tank/enclosure and its lid or top, and give details about the ventilation (how many vents, where are they positioned, how large are they).

6. What kind of food are you providing, how much and are you dusting it? What superfine powdered supplements (brand and exact product name) are you using and are they fresh (i.e. how long has the container been open, and how is it stored)?

7. Any other animals in the enclosure currently or recently? Tankmates / other frogs ?

8. Any type of behavior you would consider 'odd' ?

9. Have you handled or touched the frogs recently ? Any cleansers, paint, perfumes, bug sprays etc near the tank ?

10. Take pictures of EVERYTHING -- the frogs, the enclosure, the vents. Take numerous pics of everything - that will be of great help.

Members need several CLEAR, close-up pictures of the frog in question and the entire vivarium. No offense, but the picture you posted reminds me of the first photo supposedly taken of Bigfoot. lol.

I think better pictures will help your post generate more replies.

I don’t keep frogs and have never even seen a WTF, but some of your care tactics don’t seem quite right. I don’t think they need a heat lamp. I would venture to guess that they could use a light other than sunlight. Do you really need to use dechlorinator? I think you should be using RO or distilled water for misting. I could be completely wrong.

Hopefully someone with some WTF background will hop in. I really can’t offer any solid advice on frog care, or more specifically WTF.

good luck
