    Usually, at least from what I've seen, variation in color is completely normal. In fact, AGTFs will change their skin coloration depending upon their environment. Sometimes, my frog is a bright green, but at other times, he's a mottled brown/green color. This change in coloration is often associated with changes in lighting or environment color. During the day time, while sitting on a bright green leaf, my frog will be bright green. Near evening, while on a cork tube, he will be mottled brown.

    Variation is normal. Sometimes they seem to turn dark in response to cold or stress or a dark background, but sometimes it seems to have no cause.
