Default Ill gray treefrog

This is in a vivarium of mine. Yesterday, I found it looking very ill. Belly skin seems very transparent, and I see those white spots inside. Any idea what is going on?

Not a Gray expert, bur since the species is so prolific, I have never heard of captive bred Grays, so I am assuming this one was wild caught. Looks like possible fly / wasp larvae infestation? That, and the paralyzed state indicates nervous system compromise. Animal should be removed and quarantined. When eggs erupt, the maggots will consume the frog. Sorry, 100% fatal. Wasp poisons are designed to paralyze all but the minimum respiratory functions so the embedded larvae develop in peace.

Think this was one I raised from a tadpole.


I think it is now dead. I will remove it.

I think I saw signs of parasites in this one shortly after it metamorphosed -- maybe nematodes under the skin on the back -- but it seemed health anyway for quite.
