    Default Green and Golden Bell Frog <Litoria Aurea>

    I just saw some Bell frogs for sale on Kingsnake and have been wondering about their care, the only member i can remember that keeps them is Ebony.

    They have a body build similar to rana but i believe that Ebony once mentioned them being like tree frogs, anyone have any more info?

    When John has looked at it. He is very busy at the moment so it may not be for a while.
    What makes these frogs great pets is that they are out day and night. They are also a good size. Im just about to put up some more photo's of them now. They are loving the new enclosure and the waterfall.

    Well..I say the bigger the better. I have 5 adults in a 90x60x45cm. I think they could even do bigger but they dont make a bigger Exo terra. You could get away with a 60x45x45cm but I think that is better for two adults. Are you really going to buy some?? That would be so cool.

    I am very tempted too, if they are on kingsnake.com again soon when i look. Although space is a problem, will there be a breeding section to this article?

    We just briefly touched on the subject in the article so hopefully I can add actual experience to it eventually.
    I haven't actually breed my Green and Golden Bell frogs but im hoping they might breed this year. They are showing all the signs. I wont be upset if they dont breed though as things are a bit chaotic around here at the moment. We are still getting after shocks (just had one 10 min ago) and on top of all that we have a storm about to hit and possible flooding and snow. We are in spring so very odd. Mother nature is not happy.

    I'm jealous Tom, I would love to tour the sights there!

    I sent you a PM with a possible solution until the article is ready, I will talk to Ebony about it also.
