Toe Tapping - Whats it mean ?
#1

I have a question about my Yellowback Dart Frog. I've noticed that when he/she is eating or very active, the back middle toes on each foot tap really fast, like Morse-code. I've been thinking it's just a reaction of being excited but I'd like to know if anyone else who may also have a Yellowback has ever seen the same. If anyone know's anything please share. Thank you and I hope to learn more about this toe tapping. =)

No one really knows why they do the toe tapping, but it is not limited to when the are hunting food. They also toe tap during courtship and even during battle.

i think its common for most land dwelling frogs. my toads and my darts all toe tap. it would be nice to know what it truly means.
