CB F1 Waxy tiger legged frogs. NOTE: Most will be hypochondrialis although my tomopterna bred in there also and the tadpoles were mixed together. Its hard to separate the two species by looks at this age.

Lemur tree frogs are bright yellowish-green with dark flecks or spots on their dorsal (back) side. Their hands, feet and flanks are yellow, and their bellies are white. A thick, black line surrounds each eye. Their color can change depending on their activity. At night, when they are active, their yellow-green skin turns brown and their eyes turn dark gray.
Monkey Leg Lemur Tree frogs have thin bodies, arms and legs, and their fingers and toes are not webbed. They move slowly, walking hand over hand, and rarely jump unless escaping from danger.
Female Lemur tree frogs are typically larger than males, ranging from 4-5 centimeters long while males are 3-4 centimeters long. Males will call, which is generally the best way to sex the animals.
Lemur leaf frogs are found in Costa Rica, Panama, and some areas of Colombia. They live in forests on sloping mountainsides and in the humid uplands and lowlands. These frogs have been extirpated, or wiped out, of parts of their previous range and are critically endangered where they currently live.
Lemur tree frogs are territorial, and males call with a short “tick” to warn other males they are nearby. Calls are around 0.2 seconds long, with about 40 pulses per second.
Male Lemur frogs aggressively defend their territory. A resident male will clasp an intruder male or unreceptive female and try to push them off their perch. Males also produce a release call if grasped by another male.
In the wild, lemur frogs eat insects and other small invertebrates. At the Smithsonian's National Zoo, they are fed crickets, fruit flies, worms and beetles.
Reproduction and Development
These frogs typically breed during the rainy season (April to July). Males call to females from plants near (or overhanging) pools and slow-moving streams. Males grasp females in the mating position, called amplexus, and females lay clutches of 15 to 20 eggs. They may lay two or three clutches per night, depositing the egg masses in a single or double layer.
Eggs are deposited on the surface or underside of leaves that hang over the water. The ambient humidity keeps the eggs moist as they develop, and rain triggers the larvae to "wiggle" out of the eggs and fall into the water below.
The eggs hatch seven to 14 days after fertilization, and the tads are light green. Metamorphosis takes generally 69 to 98 days after hatching. Lemur tree frog tadpoles can also change color day to night but do not have the same yellow or orange side coloration as adults.
Lemur tree frog lifespan is estimated to be between five and 10 years.
