    Frogging from Peru

    Hey FrogForum!
    I've just begun field work for my PhD working on amphibian declines and rebounds in the Neotropics. Check out my website/blog (Alex Shepack - Home) and my lab's website (Catenazzi Lab...

    re: Oophaga pumilio "Black Jeans"

    That is so awesome Lynn! I think mine gave up on feeding their tadpoles a while ago. Now the hard part comes! Good luck with those awesome froglets!

    Re: Dart breeders

    Educate yourself before you make any purchases. I doubt the BOI on Fauna will have anything. I would try a google search and see what some of the dart frog forums have to say.

    Caveat - Just...
  6. Re: A few questions before I proceed to the next step: D. Leucomelas

    1) That is entirely up to you. I hand mist all of my tanks, but I certainly like the idea of automatic misters. Make sure you read the reviews for the Monsoon products or any misting system you are...

    Re: Begginer dart frog questions

    I have to agree with Lynn! Dart Frogs are much, much easier than most anything else. I've kept amphibians for a while. When I first started there was a mantra that darts were nearly impossible to...

    Re: Beginner dartfrogs?

    1) P. terribilis are phenomenal starter frogs, so long as you can make sure they don't get too hot. Any Dendrobates sp. would be good as well (although I prefer D. leucomelas)

    2) They're...

    Re: Temperature?

    Most dart frogs are good at "room temperature". That is, high 60s to mid 70s. Some can go warmer, although most don't need or appreciate it. Some can go cooler as well. I don't use heat mats on...

    Re: neotenic dart frog?

    I've certainly heard of dart frogs and other anurans with protracted development but they aren't truly neotenic. Most simply die after spending an extremely long time as tadpoles. To be truly...

    Re: war against 'mites'

    I wouldn't be all that concerned about mites and the frogs. Like Geo said, I think they would be a great food source if nothing else. It has been suggested that poison dart frogs sequester their...

    Moss is really fickle, but it's great if you can get it to grow. There really are so many plants to choose from. Maybe Bill can chime in with some suggestions. A fogger really isn't necessary. ...

    Re: Live plants or fake?

    You're right! That statement is a vast oversimplification. What I actually meant was that they absorb nitrates and other chemicals that come from animal wastes. In this way they help to purify the...

    Re: Live plants or fake?

    Live! Always.

    Live are helpful, and really quite necessary for darts. They help keep humidity up by transpiration and aid in creating the "vivarium" by breaking down animal waste. You can use...

    1. What poison dart frogs are best for a beginner ?
    All of them! Just kidding, although I do think that in general darts are some of the easiest of frogs to maintain. Ryan hit most of the good...

    Re: What to choose?

    All 3 of those are great choices. It really depends on what sort of tank you want. D. leucomelas needs a tank that is about as vertical as it is wide. They like (and will use) as much height as you...

  18. Re: Darwin's Frog is Extinct: Males "Nursed" Tadpoles in Vocal Sacs

    I don't know of any specific criteria for determining extinction. For instance, Bufo periglenes has been declared extinct and it was last seen in 1989. I imagine most things take so long to be...

    Josh,
    The paper is in PLOSONE, so it is freely accessible.

  21. Re: Amphibian Racking System Build (Photo Heavy)

    That should be great!

    I would definitely seal the boards. If you accidentally spill on the boards or even have small leak, they'll be basically wrecked. If water only sat for a short time you'd...

    Re: Bicolor in Terrebilis exhibit

    Michael
    - In captivity they are not poisonous. Dart frogs derive their toxins from diet, and a captive diet of fruit flies doesn't possess the alkaloids necessary to make the toxins.

    Re: Bicolor in Terrebilis exhibit

    Are P. terribilis illegal where you live?

    Also, i'm not certain that the frog you have pictured there is actually P. bicolor. It very well could be, but the toes color doesn't necessarily act as...

    Yes! I've gone to the dark side.

    Frankly, they're so much easier to keep than everything else.

    I'm really glad you ended up with some of these. They are absolutely beautiful. I hope...
