Just last week I purchased two barking tree frogs. Now today one of them I am presuming is a female has what looks to be a bubble coming from her rear side. I am not expert but I presume she is laying her eggs. What should I do once she has released these eggs? I have heard if the other frog is a male he will come over an nuture the eggs is this true?

Thanks

Can you take a picture. When she is laying the eggs the male should be on top of her fertalizing them as they are being laid.

It sounds a little more like a prolapse, don't bust it at all! Posting a pic of this will help clear up what it is though.

Prolapse. Looks like someone needs some sugar water bathes.

I have the frog in quaranteen with sugar and water 50/50 should I use a q-tip with the sugar water on the prolapse? Or just let the frog keep its butt in the sugar water?

Sorry JT. Mix sugar and water together, you can use a pretty concentrated mixture. Then soak the frog for a few minutes. This will usually push it back in.

Q-tip can be a little dangerous. You don't want to pop it. Try the soak. If that doesn't fix it they you can try coaxing it back in with a sugar soaked Q-tip.

Sorry for the loss, John. Sounds like you did everything that could be done...

This peaked my interest a bit and I've heard of prolapse issues before but after plunking around a bit and googling I can't find a plain explanation of what really causes prolapse. Can anyone enlighten the matter a bit for the n00bs like myself?

Most believe that it happens when the frog eats too much or swallows a food item that's too large. There can also be parasites and bacteria to blame as well.

I'm sorry for you loss JT. Barkers are often gathered in large quanties and shipped in containers with their own filth. These conditions take their toll on the frogs and they have a very high mortality rate in captivity. With BTF's it is a good idea to do a round of medication even if they look healthy. I also like to flush them with a few bathes of fresh water to try to get some of the toxins out of their system. They really need to come with a warning label.

I had episodes of prolapses with my red eyes. The vet pushed the rectum back in at first but I learned to do it myself with a very thin q tip and used K-Y jelly after sugar or caro syrup didn't work. It happened frequently so it was in my best interest and the frogs not to have to haul him back and forth to the vets when this happened. It was very nerve racking to attempt this with red eyes considering how small and delicate these little guys appear to be. This only happened with males. The vet said parasites or stress can cause it. Since the little guys were determined not to have parasites the vet thought perhaps it was the stress involved with the males competing for the female, 3 males and one female. I presently have 3 males and 2 females and thank God I haven't had to experience this again.
