Default LF CB Theloderma corticale (Vietnamese Mossy Frog)

Hello! I am looking for someone who can breed Vietnamese Mossy Frogs. I know they are a male-heavy species, finding a female is probably a pretty slim chance, but I'm certainly open to juvies/tadpoles. If you know someone, let me know. :) Thanks!

It is now thought that the male-heavy sex ratio is due to keeping the tadpoles too warm. This species breeds in streams and pools and keeping the tadpoles cool seems to lead to a more even sex ratio. If you can get tadpoles or eggs, keep the larvae at temperate temperatures and you may have a better chance of getting some females.

Good luck finding them
