This little guy was unmarked at my local pet shop and I had to get him. I have never seen a frog like him before and I am having trouble identifing it. Does anyone know what he is?

Wow, that's really strange- just one question though, is this an April Fools joke?

If it isn't a joke, it looks like maybe... a blue phase Cuban Treefrog?!?

although I'm almost 100% positive that its a photo shop... I wish I still had this picture of a completely bright blue tree frog, which was a real photo, which was on my old computer. The species is usually brown, but there was a genetic trait that either had blue patterns, or turned the frog completely blue. It looked much like a green tree frog, only a bit bigger. I believe it was called a "Giant (some country in Central/South America)Tree Frog. Does any one know what I'm talking about, ever seen the photos, or heard of them? I just cant think of the common name, or scientific for that matter. I'll look around for any photos online that I can find and let you know if I find it.

    @The-Axolotl, im a hug energy when it comes to axolotls, and decided i might as well “shoot my shot” and try to make a living out of it. lots of inspiration taken from margie, who used to breed and sell here on caudata- she was raising about 1000 juveniles at a time, which is my end goal

  • Elder_Axolotl:
    @Albi_the_axolotlt I would definitely make a thread about this, but before you panic try putting you axolotl in a tub where the water only goes about an inch above it, and then cool the water down SLOWLY, like a couple ice cubes at a time, to about 50 Deg F. sometimes this helps them pass gas, or even have a bowel movement. Just make sure the Temps from your current enclosure and the tub are within 4 degrees of each other and not higher than 65 Deg F. so you dont Temp shock your baby.

    well I don't know how to make a thread and I am very thankful for your help but the real reason I am worried about is that it goes away and comes back constantly like its gets better today then tomorrow morning she is at the top of the tank floating on her side all bubbled up? I do put her in a container with just enough water to cover her back and it helped but it gets annoying and scary when it's consantly happening and I am worried I am doing something horrible wrong.
