I'm looking for some species of frog that have more quiet calls... I'm looking for other species to begin keeping but I can't be having something that calls really loud. Let me know if you know of any good species to look into ... or ones that I should avoid because they sound like a dog! Thanks

Most dart frogs have very low pleasant trills. Also you could buy sexed adult females of any species.

Leucs are very loud compared to some other dart frogs(calls audible across the room i'm told). However, other dart frogs(auratus, tinctorius) the calls can barely be heard even outside the tank...most people only can tell when they see the male calling. The Phyllobates and Epipedobates are also loud for darts.

Vietnamese mossy frogs have a quiet call. They are not darts, but they are a fun frog to keep (in my opinion).

I wouldn't say t. corticale's call is very quiet at all. I can hear mine at night all the way across my house with doors closed. Darts are much more quiet, well some of them anyway, especially the Tinc family.

I keep a wide variety of frogs and I like the sound that the chubby frogs make when they are calling. It's a pleasent mewling sound, kind of a cross between a cow and a cat. Also, if you were to get D. ventrimaculatus, you wouldn't be able to hear them calling. It's a low humming noise, and then you just find eggs and know that they bred I vote for Vents! Also, the Dendropsophus (H.yla) leucophyllata have a nice call.

I'd recommend fire bellied toads. The males make a very low barking sound, but I have to be in the room with them to hear it. Even then, it's not very loud.

Shawn, the waxy monkey p. sauvagii has a very soft call. Really hope I can record that.
