Maurice is, of course, a Tiger-Leg Monkey Frog. I got him for a birthday present 11 years ago this coming February. He was probably about 4-5 mos old at that time.
He lives alone in a 18x18x18 Exo Terra and eats 3 small crickets about 2-3 times a week. He calls (clicks) a couple of times a month around 4 in the morning. I feel bad for him because no other frog ever answers. If I'm awake at that time, I answer him and he will continue to call as long as I answer.

Are they bold for such small frogs? Would love to try to get a few good shots.

Here's a few photos I just took of Malochio and my other pyxie Bruce.

Hi Bill..
Not sure but I have a feeling he was wild caught. My daughter bought 2 of these guys for me 11 yrs ago. The other one did not fare well. I don't think this particular pet shop was into cb frogs. They had gotten several of them in, all different sizes and ages, which makes be believe they were wild caught.
He's a very tough little guy. About 5 yrs ago, I was careless and forgot to tightly close the door to his enclosure. The next morning, my husband got up to let the dog out. Upon returning to bed, he noticed something laying on the rug. It was Maurice! Keep in mind we have dark brown carpeting and Maurice was in his dark brown phase lying in the path of my 6'9 husband who somehow missed stepping on him. The frog had traveled about 25 feet down the hallway to get into our bedroom from the frog room. It was the middle of winter so when I picked him up off the floor his little body seemed lifeless and very cold. I was pretty sure he was close to death.
I cleaned off the carpet fuzz he had gathered on his journey, placed him in warm water and massaged him till he began to move again. I then placed him under the lights in his tank. A few hours later, he was a beautiful bright green. I was amazed! I'm not sure what the life span for these frogs is, but I hope it's a lot more years. He is by far the cutest little guy ever!

Neat story. I think you may have a record their, I know I have never heard of them living that long, maybe 5 or 6, but not 11. Keep doing what your doing, take care, Bill

Thanks, Bill
I have 4 WTFs coming up on 11 yrs as well. I bought them as a group in 2002. They are some of the sweetest frogs.
