Tomato frogs
    #2596669 - 04/24/04 12:56 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Does anyone else here have one?  I've had mine(Magellan) since february and he's plumping up nicely, plus the red pigment is starting to appear. For those who have one or are curious, i started a yahoo group soley for this beautiful triplex species: 

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/tomato_frogs/

Here is a tomato frog:

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

although it does secrete a midly toxic substance(kinda like glue) there are unfortunatley no known special effects  :frown:. However, These frogs are only found in Madagascar (homeland of the lemurs!) So based on that alone I would suspect something magical....cause, you know,  they live with lemurs....

Not yet, i only have one and he's only about 20 in. long now. At least I think it's a he, if not then she's definately not at a safe weight to reproduce. Although one day i'd like to have as nice clutch....maybe I should get him? probed....

Here's a better more mystical picture.



Now the hard choice: mayonaise or miracle whip? Seems a bit fatty.

I don't know, at this point i think frog would win,  For one my snake is still young and eating pinkies, and the frog is much larger than that,  plus frog would kick in his toxin stuff which is an irritant and works like glue.  From what i've read, it would take a week for a snake to work it all out of his mouth.  When a predator approaches, their first instinct isn't to run, they'll puff themselves up, lock their eyes on it, and hold their ground. Pretty intimidating. Not to mention that the name of the genus, Dyscophus, roughly translates to "bad for snakes".

So, i took the obvious precaution, i put the tanks right up next to eachother to see if they challenge eachother through the glass. :wexican:

:grin: It's like those Chinese Fighting Fish that they keep in bowls next to each other... just tempting them!

But will the frog secrete this venom if you handle it, or is it friendly towards you?

He doesn't do it anymore, i guess he finally realized that when I handle him, there's usually crickets involved, and i'm not trying to eat him.

The venom itself would only bother a person if it got into a cut or mucous membrane, and even then its only mildly irritating(unless you're allergic) The worst effect is the stickiness, his bedding(leftover coir!) would stick to my hands for days.

So anyway, i wouldn't say he's friendly to me, but I would say he doesn't seem to see me as a major threat anymore.

rodan the sepentor, master of his micro realm!

over the years i've had: a tokay gecko, some lepord geckos, a parson's chameleon, a green iguana, some anoles, various salamanders, frogs, toads, newts and other such amphibians. a few turtles also, fav was a little baby softshell. the snake is a "southwestern blackheaded snake" ...real creative name huh? i found him in the building at work a few months ago.

i haven't had any herps recently though, all those i've given to someone or they died years ago. i was really into that sort of thing when i was younger though. if i ever got back into it, i might make a very nice looking glass tank for a couple tokay geckos i think. but for now, just some tropical fish.

Cool, what species is that, looks like some "crowned" variety? I don't yet have a picture of my snow corn, so i found one on the web about the same size and colorization:

Tokay geckos are definately a great looking herp, pretty aggressive from what I hear too. One of my favorite stories about them (whether truth or urban legened) is that its become popular for ravers in japan to get the tokay's to bite on to their shirts, and then go to the rave with them hanging from their shirts, because apparently once they bite they refuse to let go. I'd like some validation to this story. My Gf's considering a beardie, which will happen once the snake and frog are optimally setup. How quickly the tanks add up!

the tokay gecko i had was about 6-7" long, and brightly colored like the one in the pic. he was mean at first and bit me a few times. one time he bit my hand and just would *not* let go. after about 30 min of waiting and still not showing any sign of letting go i got an idea. i went and got a bowl of luke warm water, and gently dunked my hand. i tell ya that little fella fought the good fight, but he came up for air after about a minute.  :evil: kinda mean, but he must have learned his lesson because after a week or so, he calmed down and was very friendly and adventureous to handle. he would sit on your shoulder fine until you were close enough to a wall he liked. i might also get lepord geckos too. since i live in arizona and they are shitty climbers, i could make them a couple square yard pen  out back to get some real sun and bugs whenever i'm bored.



ya know they live for like 20 years too. a dog can't touch that.

I like the water idea, i can see that coming in handy as my collection grows. I think i might give the tokays a try sometime. I just started using the flukers orange ctricket food stuff, they seem to like it, poor bastards, last meal and all. As far lifespan, it always bothered me knowing that my herps can quite possibly outlive my cat Hephae...he's not even 2 yet.
