Brian317's Frog Room

Postby Brian317 » Fri May 31, 2013 6:33 pm

Hey All!!

I've been over on other forums for a few years and thought I'd join here as well. A little about my background first...My name is Brian Burris and I'm from Indianapolis, Indiana. I've been in the hobby since 2010 getting my first frogs at a local show and have been hooked ever since. I had a teacher in 1st, 4th and 5th grade (yes, same teacher all 3 years) who was very passionate about animals and actually had a small pond(with turtles and fish) in the classroom, along with multiple tanks with salamanders, frogs, lizards...you name it! From then on, I was hooked on all things animals and got a leopard gecko and bearded dragon a few years after (which are still in my collection today) . The passion died off a little during high school and college, but soon after buying my first house, I really wanted to start keeping dart frogs as they were amazing, bright, beautiful animals. I am currently keeping and breeding numerous species such as fine spot leucomeles, copperhead fants, varaderos, green sirensis, old line variabilis, and bakhuis. My collection is still expanding, but I focus on the species that I really enjoy. The local frog scene is ever growing in Indiana (IDS) and have met numerous, fantastic new people through our passion of amphibians. I have a beautiful wife, a cocker spaniel/golden retriever dog who loves to "frog watch", a room full of dart frogs, and cold beer in the fridge. What else can a guy ask for?!

About my Frog room...it is upstairs and just moved into our new house over a month ago. I think the dimentions of the room are 11x16. I also have a 8000btu window ac that runs all day in the room and keep the room around 72. I'll post up some Frog Room pics and some of the frogs I'm keeping:

Thanks alot!

Good eye! I really need to find a better spot for it, but for now, it will due above the vivariums.

...i guess all thats left for a guy to ask, is for the wife to grab him a beer since you and the dog are busy enjoying the frogs! ;)

But seriously, thanks for sharing the pics. Makes me miss my last place where I had hardwood floors and a chair on wheels...ultimate combo for a frog room!

Welcome to the Den Brian. Great looking setups you have there. The wood floors and the green walls go great together!

Haha...beer is up with me though, so I can just roll over to the mini fridge ;)

Glad I could share them with you all. Hardwood floors are awesome! I had carpet before and this is SO much easier to clean...and just looks better.

Great minds think alike 'eh? haha! I love the color and it goes perfect with the floors.

Hey Beth!!! There is always more room for vivs!! Thank you.

The leucs are doing great and i typically get clutches every couple weeks or so. They are picky breeders, but are beautiful frogs!

Yo Jon!! Thanks!!
I'm a ginger, not blind!!! I'd come down to Florida and teach you a lesson for calling me a ginger, but I may spontaneously combust due to all that sun down there :wink: Haha!

Sorry it has been so long since my last update to this thread. Alot has been going on this past month, both good and bad...but here are some recent shots of my frogs!

Retics recently were put into their perm vivarium (finally!) and they have been quite bold. Hopefully it stays like that :) They went into a 18 cube exoterra.

Retics: (Female is first, male is second)
