    Default Hyla marmorata (Bird Poop Frogs)


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    The 6 Hyla marmorata (Bird Poop Frogs) that I got at the show on Sunday have settled in nicely. They even ate some crickets last night. For such small frogs (1 inch or so), they sure eat a lot. They even use their 'hands' to stuff the food in faster. It's quite funny to watch a squirmy cricket get pushed in with a plunger Some of the frogs were hiding in hard to reach places, so I didn't get pictures of them all, but you can get an idea of how good their camouflage is. There's one that's so well decorated, it's absolutely beautiful, but he didn't co-operate for pictures yet.


    These two are the same frog, but the flash fired for the 2nd picture, making him look completely different.



    This is the plainest of the bunch, but a nice big splat


    Looks like he's covered in partially digested seeds of some sort (still in the deli-cup, before he decided to move into the tank)


    No matter which angle, they really look the part


    Just love those blue eyes


    Nothing like buying bird poop at the show and being happy about it

    Those are really cool looking frogs. Fantastic camouflage! I've never owned frogs. But I've been recently tossing around the idea of trying some out.

    Like they say, "try it, you'll like it". Frogs are as addicting as geckos. One of my fondest memories of dart frogs is hearing the leucomelas singing on rainy days, or waking up to the sound of them singing on a winter morning (a lot nicer to wake up to than a blaring alarm clock).
