Folks,

Has anyone heard of or had an experience with Leucomelas hybridizing with Tinctorius?

I have 2 adult Tincs with 6 adult Leucs and have one offspring that looks a little like each. (Sorry, no pic available at this time). It morphed approx. 3.5/4 months ago and is about 3/4" long. It has a Tinc pattern on its back, but the legs are Tinc-ish but with yellow as opposed to being blue like the true Tincs are. This is the only froglet I have been able to raise up. The Leucs are the only ones heard calling and sometimes seen in amplexus (but usually male on male).

I did not think that these two species could reproduce but this little guy appears to be the proof! Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Nick
