This is one of my most favorite species. Eyelash frogs can be kept in the same type of setup as a common toad. They come in a variety of leaf type colors, including a bright yellow. They have a decently loud call like a small dog yapping quickly.
One of their coolest traits is their reproduction thru direct metamorphosis. Instead of producing an egg that turns into a tadpole.. the frog develops into a fully formed frog inside the egg, and hatches out ready to go.
They are very underrated in the hobby and I hope that more people will start keeping them!
At this moment I'm down to three frogs (1.2.0). I keep hoping for eggs but no luck so far.
Good luck getting them to lay some eggs! These frogs are really cool, something I'd definitely consider adding to the collection some day. Do you find them hard to keep? I've heard they're not too bad.
Definitely let us know WHEN they eggs for you.
And.. some baby Tomato Frogs.
Hey, if you can get some eggs I may buy a baby off ya, they look awesome!
Looking at those pictures makes me wonder why these frogs aren't more common in the pet hobby. Very cool and strange looking frogs!
I love the variety in color.
1.0.0 Litoria caerulea (Eddie)
1.2.2 Limnodynastes tasmaniensis (Powder, Mangrove, Charlotte, Shaun and Winter)
0.0.2 Litoria ewingii (Froakie and Daisy)

I'd love to keep these where did you get yours?

Saurian Enterprises - http://www.saurian.net/htm05/currentavail.html (see very bottom of page for price and availability)
There is also care information available on this page Poison Dart Frogs Poison Arrow Frogs Dart Frogs & Poison Arrow Dart Frogs Terrarium Animals from Saurian Enterprises, Inc.
The owner (Pat Nabors) is pretty much the sole source of all breeding and care info for this sp. He also wrote an article on these in reptiles magazine a few years back.
Jerry B - Jerry does not have a website or a price list anywhere, but if someone is serious about getting these, PM me and I can get you his e-mail. I believe his prices will be similar to Saurian.
I have gotten Eyelash frogs from both people and I highly recommend both.
Wild Caught eyelash frogs have not been imported for several years, so CB is the only option unless they start coming in again.
Awesome pics man! Just curious, what temps do you keep yours at? Any supplemental heat source?

I am jealous. maybe one day I will have the time and space available
And another update.. I recently learned all three of mine are males. So I can stop hoping for eggs.
And Jerry B that I mentioned in the above post is no longer working with them, so Saurian is again the only constant source of these frogs.
thats one odd looking frog, really cool tho, they blends right into that leaf litter with no problem
