Frogs/ froglet with 'Flat' hip posture - pics
#1

Anyone have a pic or 2 or a Dart Frog that is sitting and it looks like it's hips are broken and it looks like is body is lying flat with it's legs 'above' the body ? Does that make sense ?

It's a calcium deficiency, I'm fairly sure and I'm seeing a few pics of these frogs. I never had such a frog with a defect like that, so no pics on my end.

Does anyone have a pic that they can post here for future reference ?

^^ this is what happens with bad supplementation or lack thereof.....bad calcium.

Rotation - use SEVERAL different Vitamins and Calciums. Don't be stingy/tight/lazy.

Remember to replace them every 6 months

Dendrobates, Phyllobates, Rantiomeya, Epipedobates

Yep....correctomundo Don. Those that only use 1 supplement or allow that one supplement to be used for a year-plus = lazy/stingy.
