Similar species: Taylor’s Stream Frog is part of a complex of species that was all split off of Kuhl’s Creek Frog, Limnonectes kuhli.  The species boundaries are still being defined and several species in the complex appear very similar to each other.  I am not certain whether all of the above photos represent Taylor’s Stream Frog or a related species.

    1. I don’t give advice on captive care here. I would only catch and breed the frogs if it was absolutely certain that it was legal in my area, if I had a specific and clear goal in doing so, and if I was certain not to ever release the frogs back into the wild, as that can spread disease.
