Swollen citronella?

Postby _ld99 » Mon Oct 05, 2015 2:41 pm

So i got home today and the skin under my male citronellas chin appears to have a bubble on it. I thought it might have been from him calling but it is just a little bubble type thing. Maybe you guys can help me figure out what it is.

Very hard to tell what that could be without handling and inspecting the frog personally. I does look like something swollen. I can only say - take it to a vet that specializes in Herps / exotics.

It resembles my azureus males throat after a day of sustained calling. I don't necessarily see it in all my male tincs, but I have seen something similar from time to time.

Are you familiar with the call of a tinc? It's a very low buzz that you can typically only hear in a quiet room when you are near the tank. The first time I heard a tinc calling I thought a fan was out of alignment and buzzing :)

If you think it's something else then is follow Phils advice and find a vet.

Good luck!

The Tinc throats can also stay 'semi inflated' for a period of time, even after calling. Maybe that's what you are seeing.
