Im always afraid mine have escaped, but they're just hiding in their plants, and I cant see them cause they're so little, lol

Mine are the size of a ten cent piece after about a month! The 3 I kept are growing so well :D They have striking brownish cream spots of the side and to top it off green spots, and the orange thighs are really bright on a particular one!

I have 6 of them. Had them from tadpoles, so it was a great experience for my kids to see the metamorphosis

That's why i'm building a new enclosure, I think I need more space.

I thought i would post some more pictures of my bells! I just love them!

This is one of my other green phases, but they arent so green, but i still love em!
Image

Here is one of my first bells, he doesnt have any green but he is a bit funny, he follows around the biggest Bell and trys to size him up by fighting! Sibling rivalry so cute!
Image

3 Little fellows all in a row! Missing one, where could he be?
Image

Oh here he is :lol:
Image

When feeding comes around, they flare their bright green and become darker in colour! What could this mean? :)
Image

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

i got a small cheapy terrarium for $40 from cheap as chips for some baby bell frogs I just purchased today (couldn't resist). It will do until they grow a little. They had cheap fish tanks there as well but they werent 2 feet long. I got the perons tadpoles in my old 2 ft fish tank with about 10cm of water and a big rock at one end for them to climb on when they morph.
