Cross Shaped Pupils

Postby Marshie Man » Sun Mar 06, 2011 5:37 pm

I heard that litoria peronii has cross shaped pupils and that there was one other frog that had them. I searched everywhere and can't find it!
Could anyone please help me.
thanks :D

I know I am 10 months late with this reply but I know that Tyler's tree frogs (litoria tyleri) have crossed shaped pupils and are almost identical to perons. I think Litoria rothii also have crossed shaped pupils.

I had never heard of Pearson's tree frogs before so I googled them:) They're beautiful but appear to have horizontal pupils. Congrats with the taddies:) unfortunately I won't be able to purchase any:( I was just wondering how long it takes them to get from hatchling to froglet? I'm trying to get my perons to breed but my striped marshies take over a year to morph!

All you would need is just a 25 watt water heater cost $20 and minimium water for the tadpoles. i noticed that some of my tadpoles in my storage container is getting legs so i will have to clean some of that out and add some water to slow their production down haha

Yeah, I already have a heater but I won't be using it;) I'm so used to striped marsh frogs which take at LEAST a year to metamorph!
By the way, I will be sleeping tonight to the sound of Litoria latopalmata , crinea signifiera , limnodynastes peronii and maybe even Litoria peronii and fallax in the distance:) the rain has brought an abundance of froggies who are laying eggs all over the place!
