So over a month ago, I bought two baby Blue Whites Tree Frogs from Petsmart. They both had green backs and white tummies.

They came in a week apart and I housed them together for their time in quarantine. One is dong well, acts normal, looks normal, and is eating.

The other one developed brown spots on the back. Similar to the Neon Green Spots of Doom, but they were brown and not green. Once this happened I put them in separate enclosures.
Next the brown spots seemed to have taken over, and the back of the frog was all brown. Once this happened the skin on the tummy turned transparent. And when I say transparent, it's like glass frog transparent. I can see all it's little organs inside there.
This frog acts normal, and eats. It sleeps on the wall of his quarrantine tub, soaks in the water dish for a reasonable amount of time, and enjoys eating crickets.

very interesting but the pigment should develop as it gets older. It is still young .

Oh, I've heard that about the blues being green when they are tiny, and turning blue as they get bigger, but I want to know what happened to the pigment all together on his tummy. The other frog does not look like that.

That is pretty dang neat!!! I mean... I'd be freaking and afraid it was something bad... but if it's just "one of those things" and it continues to thrive... I'd have to give it some really crazy name like Window LOL Oh oh or better yet, Peep Show! LOL

Seriously... keep a photo diary of this one... could be quite interesting to watch it grow!

That is really a neat frog. It looks like a white's tree frog and a glass frog had a baby…If its acting mostly normal, then there is nothing to be concerned over

Hi Maria, the frog originally had pigment when I first bought it.

A few weeks later, the pigment in it's skin started to change, and then disappeared.

Unfortunalty, the frog recently passed away.
