Hut Breeders
Place an identified sexed pair into an enclosure with suitable egg-laying sites and with appropriate temperatures and humidity. It always helps to increase spraying the enclosure with water to two times a day to simulate the wet seasons. Place half of a coconut hut in an area where the frogs feel secure but where it is easy for you to access. Place a petri dish with filtered water underneath the coconut hut. Replace water daily if eggs have not been laid.
Males will call if they find the site suitable for egg-laying and will often call for hours out of the day. Females will approach and respond to the males' calls by dancing, vibrating their feet, and batting or stroking the males. The courtship is fascinating to watch! If the female is receptive, she will approach the hut, and the male will follow. The male then pins the female down while she lays her eggs in a gelatinous mass. By pinning the female down, the male has a higher probability of fertilizing the eggs. Make sure to leave the eggs in the enclosure until both frogs leave the hut because the male will still be fertilizing the eggs for hours. Females will eat other females’ eggs if you are group breeding, so set up plenty of egg-laying sites.
