    here is the newly morphed M. laevigata froglet, i saw the other large tad last night. and he is getting hind legs so i should have another out of the water soon. sorry for the quality but he stays in the very back of the tank and isnt up front like the adults much.





    here is one of the adults


    and here is one of the clown tree frogs taking a nap


    and here is my visious attack dog

    Great looking frogs.

    Is that Dendrobates azureus?
    That's the one I've been studying up on.

    I see them often at the reptile show I go to.

    yep thats azureus, first good pics ive gotten of them in awhile. when they are young they are quite shy but as adults they are really bold. easy frogs to take care of

    Since they are bigger frogs, I guess they spend more time on the ground?

    What size tank do you keep them in? This can help me if I need a taller or longer tank.

    What food do you usually feed them?
    I think I'd like to stay away from FF. I raised them before, but a pain. Also worried about them climbing out of the tank.
    I have read and seen at the reptile show, wheat or flour beetles. Any experience with them?
    I have also read about a type of very small mealworm. Not sure where to get them though.

    a pair can be kept in a 10 or 20 gal. females fight so 2 females in a small tank is very bad. they like floor space and dont need to climb. my Tincs(another terrestrial species) climb lots more than the azureus even though they dont do it often.

    as far as raising fruit flys i dont know how you have done it in the past but if you buy the kits from Eds Fly Meat they are easy to raise and have almost no smell. my wife even lets me keep the cultures in the kitchen there is that lil smell. rice flour beetles arent good as an only source of food. they dont reproduce very fast and are smaller than fruit flies. i have a culture i use to suppliment the fruit flies. best you can do is offer a mix of food. i cant raise alot of different critters so in the winter mine live on fruit flies and the rice flour beetles and maybe some other odds and ends. spring summer and fall i collect bugs out side to suppliment, small spiders, some ants, isopods ect.

    i think that answers all your questions, as to escapped fruit flies, i raise wingless varieties so any escapees generall fall to the shelf below the frog tanks which is where i keep my CP's, so i have almost no flies actually wondering around the house. the sundews especially catch quite a few.

    Your frogs are just beautiful. I'm always impressed. Every time I see pics of them it makes me want to get some even more. Their coloring is just awsome.

    How many frogs do you have altogether and are they difficult to get to breed?
