  1. Re: Whites Tree Frog infected fat pad after wound?

    Sorry to hear about your frog. I have a lot of success using Bactine on the wound. Bactine, NOT Betadine is safe for amphibians.

    Re: New Toad Mom: Worried about loneliness

    I really don't think toads get lonely, however fire belly toads seem to do well in small colonies. If you don't have room for two, just enjoy the one you have.

    Re: Spot on back

    It is probably a skin blemish. I wouldn't worry too much. Watch for any significant changes in color, size or texture of the spot, it could be a sign of disease.
  9. Re: Injured arm on ACF? Holding arm above body, pic included

    I don't see any sign of disease or injury. Often times the frogs will lie motionless with their arms extended. Just keep an eye out for any changes, bu right now he looks quite healthy.

    I have not kept this species but I would think they could be kept in the same manner as frogs in the family Rhacophoridae. They are arboreal and appear to be foam nest builders. Good luck in your...

    Re: Male or female? Opinions welcome

    Most likely it's a male because of the yollowish around the legs. However, it is hard to tell until the dorsal stripe fades out. The stripe indicates it's still a juvenile.
  16. Re: Baby African claws frog keeps floating to the surface (help)
