  • Yellow-Spotted Tree Frogs (Leptopelis Flavomaculatus)

    The yellow-spotted tree frog is very similar to the big-eyed tree frog. The only difference is they do not have the marble patterns in the first phase; instead they have yellow spots along their sides. My guys names are Apollo and Zim.

        Thanks! No they are not fully grown yet. Apollo is huge now and Zim is not far behind Zim is the green one. You can see how much the colour changes because he is the one that is on my finger in the other photo.

            Sorry don't quite know what you mean?


            I love these guys! I got them from a reptile show and the sellers actually sold them as big-eyed tree frogs. They looks the same physically but I thought something was up. They had three of them and one did not look very healthy so I said I would buy just the two and the seller just gave me the third. Unfortunately I was right and Nyx, the one who did not make it, just would not eat. The other two pounce on crickets. I only ever saw Nyx eat a single cricket in the two months I had him/her.

                My bad! Yeah they have huge eyes! They are cool to watch because when they sleep their eyes are pretty much sucked into their heads. Also when the eat, as they swallow one or both eyes sink in and pop out!

                  Dang those guys are adorable! How big do they end up getting?
                  I got 2 Big Eye tree frogs at the last show I went to and they were about the same size as yours when I got them. They're still adolescents right now but one is definitely female (she's twice the size and already turning bronze) and the other is already calling. I think the female is ignoring him though. Too young I'm sure!

                      They are identical in size to big-eyed tree frogs or maybe even a little smaller. I think that both of mine are male because I think that I have heard them both call. Apollo is about 50% bigger than Zim so it makes me think that he is a she but I have physically seen him call and inflate his throat.

                      I got a nice new shot of Zim yesterday and you can see how he is solid brown now with no yellow spots of even green blotches.

                        Ok two questions... I looked up the yellow spotted tree frog... Not only does it not look like these frogs shown, but it is listed as critically endangered with only one living wild population... So I looked up the scientific name you listed in the title Leptopelus Flavomaculatus. That came up with ornate tree frog. These frogs look similar to the one u are speaking of... I could easily be mistaken because google doesn't know everything so I was hoping someone could help me. Thanks!

                        Yellow spotted tree frog scientific name is litoria castanea. This is one of my sources...
                        http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Litoria_castanea

                        Here they are listing some conflicting information as well :
                        http://amphibiaweb.org/cgi-bin/amphi...species=equals


                        Ok so after further searching I'm even more confused... I found so much conflicting information and no solid answers... First of all I can only find an ornate horned frog or an ornate peacock frog... I don't even think it is an ornate frog after finding these two sites...

                        I'm at a loss!!! I'm going to bring the pics to umass to ask a biologist.

                          A quick answer (and this without me doing research on this particular example) is that many species have many common names. That's part of the reason scientific names are so important. This sounds like a pretty easy mix-up to make to me.

                          For example I could call a grey rat snake as white oak runner, white oak racer, and a chicken snake and all of them be referring to the same snake.

                          The only group that have standardized common names are the birds. Therefore you could go to a European or Japanese ornithologist and say Northern Cardinal and they would possibly no what you are talking about without having to say Cardinalis cardinalis.

                            Very cool frogs, if you dont me asking, how much did they cost?
                            Would one do well in a 12x12x12 terrarium? I have a planted one, and was looking for a small/ attractive resident, and these guys are pretty freaking adorable.

                            thanks
