Hi.
I have 3 Bombina orientalis kept together for several years. Two are brown (maybe B. bombina) and one green. It happens that some weeks ago I noticed that the green one is showing brown patches on its skin.
It could be because I moved them close to a window and removed artificial lighting. Feeding has not been the best, moslty gut loaded T. molitor since crickets tend to be fairly scarce in winter in my region, so I'm worried it might be some nutrient deficiency. Its behavior is quite normal and it's the most active of the 3 though. Does anyone have any experience regarding this problem?

Thanks

In my experience this is fairly normal for them, mine changed color back and forth from dark brown to bright green all the time and would have spots of the other color occasionally.

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the reply.
I kept them for 2 years and never noticed that. Then I gave them to my GF and didn't pay that much attention, but it got significantly darker then. It was only we moved in together that it got bright green again, so maybe it's some old pigmentation left.

Thanks again
