Absolutely! Contagious calling runs rampant in my frog room. There are a few factors that can contribute to frog calling in my room, which could be misting, birds calling, crickets chirping, or even if I play a frog call from my computer. The Dendrobates imitators are always the first to sing, followed by my group of Epipedobates tricolor anthonyi. This has also proven that my Dendrobates leucomelas are female, as males will begin calling if they hear tricolors mid-song. It is amazing the chain reaction that can occur as a result of a mere cricket chirping, as it turns in to a symphony of the rainforest. My Bombina orientalis are always making some sort of noise as well, but that seems to be a result of their own set of stimuli.
