    Re: Breeding the False Tomato Frog

    Tomato frogs are very very very hard to breed, I hear you need to get them on hormones to breed them successfully in captivity. Most of the tomatoes sold in pet stores are wild caught. I have never herd of a tomato breeder.

    These were captive bred however they are the false tomato as tomato are CITIES 1 .Trouble is a lot of people keep their techniques close to their chests. To me that is not the idea. The more we breed the less goes extinct.

    Re: Breeding the False Tomato Frog

    I agree with you Vinny. If people continue to breed them, there will be no need to catch them in the wild. Unfortunately, I can't help as I've never owned Tomato Frogs, false or otherwise, and I've never bred any herps. Maybe if you spoke with the breeder you got them from he could help you.

    As stated most breeder haven't had luck without hormone injections, but few have your on the right track with the rain chamber keep trying and maybe you'll be one of the few that can breed them without hormones.
