Amazon milk frogs are medium sized tree frogs, males grow to around 7 cm, females 9cm. The dorsum colouration is dark brown with green to light brown spots. The legs and arms have brown bars with cream boarders. The snout is rounded. The dorsum has large white or brown tubercles. The iris is golden with a black cross centered on the pupil. There is a vocal sac on each side of the head on males.
Amazon milk frogs inhabit primary rainforest in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Suriname and Venezuela.
Amazon milk frogs require a spacious terrarium, a large 2ft tall terrarium would be ideal for a group of 3-4 individuals. They require a humid rainforest set up with soil and moss as a substrate. The terrarium should be equipped with logs, branches and plants (plastic or live).Plastic plants can be taken away and washed, live plants help provide higher humidity.
These frogs require a temperature of around 25-27°C (75 – 80F) and drop to around 20°C (70F) at night. These frogs seem to enjoy and benefit from UVA 5.0 or 6.0 should be provided for light. The humidity needs to be high (70-80%) which is achieved by heavy spraying in the morning and again at night.
Water should be changed daily with de-chlorinated water to avoid the build up of bacteria. Terrarium furnishings can be taken away and washed with hot water once a month. Amazon milk frogs should be fed daily with suitable sized insects including small locust, crickets and mini-mealworms. These food items should be dusted with a calcium/vitamin supplement every other feed.
