Those are adorable. I wish I had them. They look like jelly :)
The kiss originated when the first male reptile licked the first female reptile, implying in a subtle, complimentary way that she was as succulent as the small reptile he had for dinner the night before.

What are they like to keep? Would you be breeding and selling any?

Great stuff reptile.

I hope you don't mind answering a few questions, but frog keeping is not a common hobby in RSA.

The set-up looks good. Do you use normal tap water or any special type of water? Do you spray them and how often? How long have you had them? What do you feed them?

Thanks everyone.
Westley:
I use tap water, it is not so bad here in Malawi. I spray them every second day. I have only had these particular ones for a week, but I have kept others for half a year, before letting them go due to a Holiday. I feed the fruit flys, which I catch by placing a bottle with bananas outside, and leaving it there for a day or two.
Conbizzle:
Sorry, I am in Malawi, other wise I would give them away if they bread.

Great stuff.

If you have kept the for 6 months using the current methods, I am sure it's successful.

Just be careful of some tap water because it contains chlorine.
