Great advice, friendly people, and lots of frogs!
You're welcome. I am sorry for your loss. I just lost a newt today, a Tylototriton kweichowensis.
unfortunately my frog passed away the day after i sent you that message. thanks for responding though.
I don't know what to tell you. These are not symptoms I am familiar with, so all I can advise is for you to bring it to a vet. Maybe you can make some sort of payment arrangement with your vet. I know mine will do such things as the animal always comes first to him. Good luck.
had temp and humity gauges so i cant tell you what the lvls are...times have been tuff and i havent been able to find the extra money to prperly outfit my frogs' homes with gauges. now if you have any info on what is goin on or what i can do to help him recover plz share. one more thing i have givin him a honey bath once to try and help though i dont really know if that will help much. please respond. thank you
hello kurt, its been a long while since i was on the forum due to a move and loss of internet, but i am having some difficulties with my whites. Im not sure what is goin on with him but in what seems like overnight or in a day maybe he went from perfectly normal to not so much. he acts as though he is having trouble breething...he often holds his mouth open and makes a small noise the sounds like a hiccup almost. i shined a light in his mouth while he had it open and i could see that there was a bubble over the the opening in his throat. then afterwards when i checked on him again he had coughed up a single drop of what appears to be blood. i saw this only once and not again...now i must admit i have had frogger(my whites) and 7 other frogs for well over a year now...and had trouble only with 1, my pacman which later did die for still unknown reasons. now i have never
I have never experienced that with any frog. Sorry.
hello kurt. i have a little story for you. last night i was feeding my frogs, and threw some crickets in with my pacman, and normally when i do he will come up out of the dirt and start hunting, well this time he never moved a muscle. i found that unusal so i reached in and touched him...he still didnt move, so i picked him up and he was extremelt dry and lifleless....naturally i paniced...i put him in his water bowl and and got him good and wet...and saw some skin come loose...i pulled it and realized he was in mid shed but before he could shed his skin it dried on his body...i got all the skin off and hes since been doing fine....i wonder though have you ever heard of this happening before...i almost lost my frog because he was trying to shed. if you can shed any light on this it would be helpful.
To sex Bombina orientalis see the Fire-Bellied Toad Care article. Fire-bellies are toxic but you will not be poisoned unless you either try to eat them or handle them roughly with open wounds on your hands. After you handle them, which you should do minimumly, don't touch your eyes or mouth until you have washed your hands.
hello kurt. i have a couple questions im hoping you can answer. i just obtained 2 bombina orientalis who had to rescued from a girl who had not fed them in about a month. now the first question i have is...is there any way to sex the frogs....and the second is are they really poisonous to the touch...meaning if i touch them am i gonna get a nasty rash as everyone keeps tellin me i will....hope you have answers for me.
Its a White's treefrog, Litoria caerulea, AKA the dumpy treefrog.
