This culture is W/C from Tanzania. Hyperoliidae is a family of small to medium sized frogs, brightly colored frogs which contains more than 250 species in 19 genera. Seventeen genera are live in sub-Saharan Africa (Shiotz, 1999). In addition,the monotypic genus Tachycnemis occurs on the Seychelles Islands, and the genus Heterixalus (currently 10 species) is endemic to Madagascar. Many species have smooth, brightly patterned skin that almost looks enameled.

Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, swamps, freshwater marshes, intermittent freshwater marches, arable land, urban areas, heavily degraded former forest, ponds, irrigated land, and seasonally flooded agricultural land. Breeding in this family start at the begining of the rain season. Most hyperoliids lay their eggs in water, although foam nesting, tree hole breeding, and laying of eggs in vegetation above water are all known behaviors. Afrixalus builds leaf nests for its eggs, by folding and gluing the edges of the leaves. Tadpoles are pond type larvae with large dirsal fins on the tail.

Most Hyperoliids are arboreal, but some are terrestrial, including several Kassina species that move by walking or running rather than hopping. Diet varies widely, with examples including Tornierella, who specialize on snails, and Afrixalus fornasinii, the only terrestrial frog known to prey on eggs of other species of anurans.

Their setup. They tend to hide really well! There are actually 6 frogs inside :)!
