Golden Bell Frog (Litoria aurea)
Growling Grass Frog
These frogs vary in coloration from splendid to boring. They seem to adapt to their surroundings. The particular "Golden" color comes from yellowish accents along the sides of their bodies...surprisingly, the "golden" color really looks like 14k Gold!! Yet, this color fades and shines depending upon tank temp and mood. If they are agitated, the color is washed out. If the tank is too cold, they turn very dark. These frogs can grow quickly! In the first month, the Bell Frog can double in size.

Hawaii's Hated Frogs
by Janet Raloff
Puerto Rico's beloved mascot is a miniature tree frog named for its distinctive call: ko-KEE. All night long, choirs of love-starved males serenade would-be mates, who respond with quiet guttural chuckles. "To me, it's pleasant just like birds singing," says Bryan Brunner, a University of Puerto Rico plant breeder in Mayaguez. "Here, everybody loves the coquies." And legend has it, he says, that coquies native only to Puerto Rico die of sadness when removed from their island. Hawaiians are lamenting that that fable isn't true.
