When I woke up this morning, I went to check on my babies like I always do. I noticed that Obdulia, my female New Mexico spadefoot, was out. I picked her up because, well, I love my babies and she's adorable. When I looked at her belly, I noticed that she was full of eggs! Their tummies are slightly transparent near their legs, so it was quite obvious that she has these eggs.
Why this is excellent news is because my male, Melix, has been croaking his heart out at night. I'm definitely considering trying to get them to reproduce. Tomorrow I'm going to get a better water dish, and I'm thinking of getting some aquatic plants for her to lay her eggs on. I haven't much experience with breeding frogs (okay, none :/) but it would be fantastic to breed these magnificent toads.
Anybody have any suggestions? Melix and Obdulia are the light of my life, and the idea of having babies that were created by them is so amazing. He's already croaking, which lets me know he's ready to reproduce. The problem is that there is so little research on these guys and what assists them in breeding.
