    Default Albino Motorbike tadpoles

    Litoria moorei

    Not exactly a fish or an invert, but native nevertheless...
    Probably the commonest frog in the Perth region, but the albinos are a bit more scarce.

    I hope you can get them thru, white taddies sometimes have difficulty in the metamorph stage. I have had white Litoria caerulea and white Litoria rothi taddies and they all died during metamorphosis.

    Attached is a pic of the white Roths Tree Fog, it never produced legs and was sent to the CSIRO researchers for them to check out its RNA.

    Cheers

    These should be good, they have been breeding for at least 7 years.

    Terry from Midland was breeding them (with license) until about 7 years ago, then he gave it up released them on his property.

    Recently he found these in one of his ponds. Joe and I have 16 between us.

    Joe got a young frog, tail almost gone.





    Here's a non-albino from the same pond:

    Well done, it looks healthy, you are having better tadpole management than I am. I cant get albino Green Tree Frog taddies to metamorph, they always perish during the change over.

    Default Tree Frogs

    Hey Dave, what kind of tree frogs you got breeding up there. I'm looking for some white lipped tree frogs (or a few tadpoles) for my brother. You know, those big ones

    Cheers
