You're probably correct, they are most likely Polypedates dennysi. They have been appearing more and more in the hobby, and are really the only "blue" species that I can think of. For photos check the Kingsnake classifieds. I don't have any that I can post.

Default Re: Blue Frogs

I don't think they are very difficult captives, probably comparable to any other tree frog species. They would probably do fine in a temperate vivarium with normal temperatures. I think that the only catch with these guys might be that they are fragile when young, which is really true with any species. To look for more information broaden your search to any foam-nesting tree frog, but like I said, the care is pretty basic.

Best of Luck
Alex
