I'm so sorry Jordan. Do you know how old he was? was he young when you got him or already grown?

Sound like he was pretty young. What's their usual life span?

So sad about losing your frog. He was a beauty. Sometimes we never know what causes these things.

Did you ever get the frog treated for parasites? Most of these are wild caught specimens and come pre-loaded with tons of parasites. I plan on taking my new one to Dr. Minson today to get treated. I actually found a nematode in its droppings yesterday. I hope it isn't too late to save the frog. This is why we quarantine our critters. It is also why I decided to only buy captive specimens, but I broke my own rule with this one.

Also, knowing where yours came from, I wouldn't believe anything you were told. If it was a lady that helped you, then it was probably the girlfriend of the guy that owns the company and she doesn't know a frog from a ferret. Another member recently had 2 dart frogs die that came from the same vendor. The darts were sold way too young and underfed.
