    Image in Black and White? That's the night vision view.

  • FrogTV?

    Watch frogs live on the internet with FrogTV.

    Currently (December 2013), there is one channel running. What you are seeing is a live snap shot of what's going on in the terrarium. The image updates every 13 seconds.

    If the image is in black and white, the lights are off for that terrarium at the current time, so you are viewing in infrared. Any glare during "night" vision is from the infrared lights reflecting in the terrarium glass. The frogs become active before the lights come on in the morning, so they are sometimes visible even when the lights are out. This is often the case for up to an hour before the lights come on in the morning.

    Channel 1's lights run from about 7:50 am US Eastern time to 7:50 pm US Eastern time. (+/- 1 depending on Daylight Savings).

      No, no sound, but you could see the male inflating and deflating his vocal sac.

      2 updates to share. Firstly, channel 1 now shows an Oophaga pumilio terrarium with a breeding pair of the Bastimentos race. Secondly, there's a small set of terribilis eggs in the center bottom view of the terribilis terrarium (channel 2). Don't ask me why they laid there of all places.

      John I recommend using ustream.com so you can have a actual video feed from the tanks.

      Like John said earlier, he uses survilliance cameras and not actual video cameras. I don't think the streaming host is the problem, he just preferrs pictures. This way, he don't need to have the stream on his computer, since they upload it directly. That's what he said, IF I remember correctly.

      On a side note, justin.tv is often prefferred over ustream.

      Yeah, live snap shots are far more bandwidth efficient than live streaming, since this is all coming through my home internet connection. Obviously I would love to stream it live but then I would need to buy a separate internet connection just for FrogTV!

      Just an idea, but you could try move to a country with a decent 200/100 Internet connection instead of that crappy US one you are using
