Dart frogs calling ?

Postby _ld99 » Fri Nov 06, 2015 5:32 pm

So tonight i heard my azureus calling. Im curious whether he is calling to mate, or if they call when hunting too. It seems the second I turned the light to my room on, he stopped. So do you guys think this is a mating call? I saw a video where someone said hunting call. So im not sure. I turned the light off and waited 5 minutes and hes doing it again.

No such thing as a 'hunting call'. The call = mating, or at least, trying to call in a female to mate.

Some frogs can certainly call at night / with lights off. My leucomelas did it all the time.

Can you paste the link to the video of the 'Hunting Call' ?
