Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

New addition - 0.0.4 R summersi. I have been shifting from larger frogs to smaller frogs. Here are shots of the four animals:

Re: Sick and weak Azureus

It looks pretty far gone. Is this frog isolated from the other animals? I'd get it into an isolated enclosure with thick leaf litter and a feeding station. You may want to contact Dr Frye and discuss your situation. He may prescribe metronidazole which is a antibacterial/ antiprotozoal/appetite stim...

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

The clutch was still looking ok last night ... fingers crossed.

So far both groups of thumbnails I am keeping prefer the horizontal cans. Here are a few shots zooming in on the location of the can the highlands are using:

Full height picture of the left side of the Viv. Film can is about 2/3 of the way up, toward the front. There are cans in the back too, but they picked the one closer to the front.

A bit closer to illustrate how dark and set back the can is.

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

Found the third highland sirensis clutch last night. They seem to like a specific film can placed horizontally on a corkbark shelf about halfway up their Viv. This clutch looks better than the first two attempts.

Re: Aposematic Poison Frogs of the Andean Countries Book

I saw that fantastica print and thought that would be a near addition to the frog wall. Might need an add order :)

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

The sirensis / lamasi deposited their second "clutch", this time two eggs that molded over. I am not that concerned - I figure it will take a while for them to get going. I had left the remnants of the eggs in the Viv over the holiday weekend and found these Isopods diligently cleaning up ...

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

Captured an interesting series of photos in the Bakhuis viv the other day. They are a 2.2 that have been housed together for over three years. They have been producing on their own for about two years, depositing and transporting within their viv; I pull about a froglet every month or two. The domin...

Re: Poll - Forums vs Facebook

Ok so what is all the chatter over on Facebook about large obligates? I am not a member of FB nor do I intend to be. It sounds like there are some illegal imports being flaunted? It *seemed* like the forums were taking a pretty good line recently against new imports of suspect origin. Are we seeing ...

Re: Frog update

Hah yeah it's always the azureus that get the oohs and aahs in my house. A hand held pressure sprayer or pump garden sprayer will do. I started with a hand held and as my Viv count went up up just picked up a large garden sprayer from HD. I flush my vivs every week or two.

Re: terrestrial / arboreal and a 24" glass box

I completely agree that we need to discuss tank orientations and usable space, but to say that a thumbnail or a pumilio is going to use all parts of a properly constructed vertically oriented 24" tall vivarium and a D. tinctorius will not because it is "terrestrial" is, well, silly, n...

terrestrial / arboreal and a 24" glass box

The "terrestrial" versus "arboreal" discussion topic seems to pop up frequently across multiple threads, and I thought it was an interesting debate that warranted a dedicated thread. As a D. tinctorius keeper, it bothers me to see them incorrectly characterized as "unable to...

Re: Jim from Austin's frog wall

Some progress in the highlands Viv - first egg but it looks like a dud. Kind of a pathetic photo, but I was still happy: image.jpeg They went for the horizontal cans too. I'm not sure how much supplementation they get - they seem to prefer hunting at dusk after the flies have been wandering for a wh...
