If it's a Leptopelis vermiculatis AKA Tanzanian Leaf frog, Peacock TF, Usumbura TF, Big-eyed TF, African Big-eyed TF (and maybe even also Tanzanian Beauty now) then I can refer you to the only page written in English on the web on them. It's Henry's page on them and I have it on my site. Hope this helps.

Here's another thing about them: HTey're only green as juvi's. As adults they are brownish. That cool color fades w/ age
I've got 2 adults now, they are the LOUDEST tree frogs I have every owned. They were given to me and I set them up and hte first night they started calling it scared the shi+ outta me heheh
anyway, there's not a whole lot of info on them on the web, but...
Also, They are commonly called big eyed tree frogs even though this common name is reserved for a sister species in Leptopelis.
anyway, hope that helped.

Oh,wow. I dont know thats what they were,sorry for the crappy post then. The little one in work is about an inch long tops right now,and is the greenest green i've ever seen. He's got the nicest patterns,like black zigzagz all over him arms and legs,and bright green eyes. The color fades?Thats a bummer.

Wow.. I saw the African Big Eyed tree frogs and they were absolutely gorgeous!

Is there any way you could post pics? That would be fantastic

The brown is pretty, because it has a pattern in it and a little green if I'm not mistaken.

I wouldn't be so sure that this ones color will fade. From what Henry has told me about them their colors and patterns are vastly varied and the one of his in the pic on my page isn't a youngen and his colors don't look faded to me. I wouldn't let the possibility of the fading colors change my mind about wanting him, but I have always wanted one so I'd jump on the chance. Just my .02 worth.

Editting here: sorry we must have been posting at the same time. Was under the impression you didn't want him if he'd be brown. Sorry! Good luck with him!

Thanks alot, This guy is too brilliant to fade. Doesnt matter if he does. I had no intentions of getting one of these frogs before,until i saw the cutie. My store relly needs to stop ordering new species of animals, i bring everything new HOME! I've only got a 10 gallon and a 15 gallon open.This baby is very tiny so Ill put him in the 10 for now,and maybe invest in another tank in the future, but then i've only got one tank left! I hope they don't get anythign new in next week...
