Out of stock


Archimantis sobrina is a widespread species found primarily in SA and WA. Those from SA have a thick white band going down the back fo the body, while those from WA have a much thinner stripe. They are a large, slow growing species reaching 10cm in length. A very rarely available species.

These ones are from the SA population. Individuals come in an array of colours, adult males are always brown while adult females can be bright green, dark green, purple, brown or pink in colour. Juveniles often have muddied colours, which represent a transition in colour forms. An image is provided of a juvenile that was brown-pink previously and turning green with each moult.

Our nymphs are currently feeding small crickets. They have to be kept seperate, not communal.

    I’ve ordered two of these guys and the differences in them is awesome, the 1st is lighter than the 2nd. Both have already molted and are chowing down on their crickets. Amazing to watch hunting.

    Exactly as described, he even came with some sort of food / moisture substance as well as his own thermal bubble wrap inside the box. He’s been a bright energetic little fellow since day one. Much to my daughters delight. Thank you Bug Frenzy!

    Little buddy came perfectly safe despite Anzac Day stopping delivery for a day. Was scared to eat at first but quickly acclimated to its new enclosure and ate a day later
