Spots

Do you have a question about anatomy, life cycle, taxonomy, or anything else that isn't covered by the other frogs.org.au projects? Ask them here (or provide an answer to other people's questions).

Spots

Postby Evan » Sun Aug 20, 2006 5:06 pm

Do the spots you see on Litoria caerulea and Litoria splendida increase with age? I remember reading somewhere that they do, but can't find it again. Looking at this image on the ARC site, it has a huge amount of spots, but it is young as the paratoid glands haven't developed fully. So I am doubting whether it is true.

By the way, that L. splendida is the most beautiful I have seen.

Thanks,

Evan

My Litoria caerulea spots have developed as they have aged, all the spots on all three have increased in size or now have some that we didn't see when they where younger.

EDIT. I know I haven't worded this clearly but I'm a bit tired!! LOL I will come back tommorrow and try and make more sense I hope!!!

2 of my caerulea's spots did decrease in size as they grew but my splendida's spots are still the same
