What Frog is this ?
#1
I recently picked up 3 PDFs. They are currently in 3 seperate Quarantine setups until I make sure they're all eating and healthy. My question is this. What are some of the main distinguishing features of different species/subspecies. One is green and black, one is orange and black and one is white and black. I've searched and searched but found nothing that goes into much detail on the differences between multiple species. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

the green and black could possibly be a D Auratus, the yellow/orange and black could be a Lucomonus. As for the white and black im not sure. Your best bet is to search for pictures with species names. Or if you post some pictures of them ill do my best to help you out, good luck

If the Black and white one really is a Dart, I would love to buy him/her off you. :lol:

Yeh, post some pics JMFS.

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

I've found a couple of web sites that refer to a similar frog as a Black-White Bastimentos Pumilio. The only picture I've seen so far was spotted. Mine is more striped than spotted but otherwise looks about the same. Anyway, I'll get some photos posted as soon as my digi comes to me in the mail.

Sounds like a pic of a "milk frog" that I recently saw. I'm not sure if that is a PDF or not, but I don't think so.

Hello all Smile It's John's girlfriend.. I think the best way to describe the frog is as a Dendrobates leucomelas, but instead of yellow or orange (we have an orange one) it's white. I've seen something called a yellow backed dart frog (no sci. name) which was black with a white back and white feet... I still haven't seen anything White like him though. We'll try to get pics up asap, but I dunno how soon it'll be. Thank you all for all your help so far!

so its, white and black, and has a pattern like a Luc, it sounds like a milk tree frog to me, although without a picture, i cant tell, ive seen pictures of a morph or Auratus that is green and white, but none that are black and white, besides a Koi juvenile. Good luck.

There are B+W Auratus and Pumilio (two morphs).
Some Epips are B+W , but not much definition from where B stops and W starts.
Some B+W Histos, also Lehmanni .
I would guess there are others I have missed, but I stick with my offer to buy it if it is a Dart :lol: Confusedhock: :lol:

Very Cool frog! I googled it and read some about it thats a big tree frog.
"The Amazon milk frog is a rather large tree frog and adults range in size from 2.5 to 4 inches (6.3 cm to 10 cm) with males being smaller than females."

So I guess we will never see a pic of our mystery frog?
Hey JMFS, hows about enlightening us as to the specie of frog we have all been guessing at? :wink: Or post a pic?

It is a milk frog, the exact one that was pictured on page 1. They're apparently not very common. I've spoken with a few herpers who have never seen them. Thanks again for all the help.
