    Default Theloderma corticale / Vietnamese Mossy Frog info

    I was wondering if anyone had any info about Vietnamese Mossy Frogs

    A care sheet

    That care sheet doesn't say if they are hostile in groups and how many can live in the 30 gallon that they describes. I am also guessing that they are similar to Fire Bellied Frogs

    They are not similar to fire-bellied toads in any way other than they have a textured skin. Fire-bellies are of the family Bombinatoridae, which in turn belongs to the suborder Archaeobatrachia or primitive frogs.
    Mossy frogs or mossy treefrogs are of the family Rhacophoridae or Old World treefrogs. Some place them in the family Ranidae or true frogs. Either way they are in the suborder Neobatrachia or advanced frogs (its the suborder where you find most frogs that people keep)
    So you can see they are not even close. You should keep them like a treefrog and if you notice that is why I moved this thread to the treefrog section.

    You can keep treefrogs like that. My White's are kept like that. You can also keep them like you would any other treefrog.

    I am glad you are asking about these!! We ran across one in our local pet store that someone had brought to them as a rescue, and were considering taking it in, if they decide to sell/place it in a home. If you do get one, please let me know how it goes. They are beautiful frogs!

    I absolutely love their eyes. Still what kind of groups can they be kept in? and do you think that they would be happy in a 18x 18x 24x with half water in the bottom and then a couple of plants and some live moss?

    Yeah, I think that will be fine for two or three. I don't think you will have any terratorial issues with this species.

    There was someone on this Forum that did breed them. So do a search for this thread.
