    HElP. One of my junivllle Qwonake Gliding Tree Frogs broke its leg. I think. When it was sitting on the ground with one of its legs sticking out really weirdly. What can I do to help it.

    Have you seen it walk or jump after that broken leg?
    It may just be streching its leg far..
    Frogs can strech their legs (at most?) this far(ex.this- http://www2.aes.ac.in/es/intranet/Ra...lidingfrog.jpg or some random plushie picture i found: https://ssl.perfora.net/s232663891.o...ages/pedro.jpg ) I know i've seen my Red eye frogs do that when they were trying to reach/strench to somewhere.
    Mine havent gotten a broken leg..So i cant give much help if yours did,but many frog experts are on these forums,so i think they will help

    2-3 hours is a long time for them to be stretching..but sometimes frogs are slow(mostly when lights on or when they just woke up..well mine do that)
    I have a few ideas though,and if none of them work the leg may be broken
    (1 squirt them with some water; Its simple,but they may move there legs/feet to reattach to things like a glass tank wall
    (2 Nudge them(not on the leg.on there side,softly)..If they limp..its broken

    If it is broken;these a answer about broken frog legs here" Frog with a broken leg? How do I help it? - Yahoo! Answers "

    he can move the leg and all it just sticks up all the time. the thigh is fine its just the part after it. could it be dislocated. If it is dislocated, then how can i fix it.

    Maybe post a picture of the leg? Hopefully a frog expert comes along and can answer this.
    You could also take it to a vet.vets that help amphibians: Herp Vet Connection

    just an update. good news, my frogs leg seems to be getting better. It is not sticking up anymore and the frog is the fattest one of the three.
