  2. Thrifty duo viv

  3. Thrifty duo viv

    Yeah they are getting there I was thinking the boldness had been exaggerated but while I was cutting back plants a couple really couldn’t be bothered to move. I tell you what thy don’t like. Springtails. there are more in that viv than in some of my cultures. So once again against froggy rules I’ve added a few thumbs to clean up the clean up crew they are half grown (southern variabilis) the bi color are half grown neither of them could give s damn about the other. They will occupy walls branches broms the bi color oblivious to them on the floor. I added two yesterday (one still to morph/grow on) one hopped straight past biggest bi c he never moved then they’ve settled up top. Same as my leucs santa and French Guyana and now triv viv.none of them care leucs. Pums on their own tincs on their own.

As I’m making my own viv May do another decent sized vertically oriented viv and combine maybe auratus and vanzo group????
  5. Thrifty duo viv

    Cheers he doesn’t look that skinny in the flesh. I see flashes of the other 3 but they all look well fed. I cut back loads of foliage in the bi color viv yesterday exposing the 900 flys that must be keeping them in the shadows I could immediately see more of them sitting on top of coconuts as they do. Once they’ve hoovered these I’ll feed more carefully. Like to see them react to feedings like the azureus

    the nearest gas station around me best I could get
  7. Thrifty duo viv

    I’ll try. Tbh a fungwent through it like wildfire and took alit if the foliage from climbers. It’s recoveriynow but the frogs are a bit elusive. I’ll get a shot if I can
  8. Thrifty duo viv

    Been stocked with 4 pumilio colon one older thought to be female one older thought to be male and two younger for luck range from many tiny round spots poss male lighter blotches poss female big symmetrical lady bird style so should identify individually. Proving to be bit elusive. The likely male seems to be the one I see more and in same place.after a misting I think I just heard his first little crack at calling. Now need to watch for trouble. Not sure if I want to try the group split a pair off? May sell off when sort a pair.

    you know when your mates that good looking he just doesn’t try. Bog standard dart frog bit of wood bit of green Lovely
  10. easy again I know but just found first Isabel clutch after searching out a girl(or two?) woo hoo. Most of them look brown bread but suppose it’s a first clutch young frog thing
  11. More celebrating mediocrity!

    Down to one tad but first clutch so fine. Colin and Deidres first effort. My sexier bigger pair were the ones I expected to perform. Anyway I’ve just directly sprayed Alan and Brenda directly with cool ro and he’s started calling the mucky fat so and so is following him like a puppy

  13. Favourite lil viv

    eastern bank locations and hours thought I’d share pic of best lil jungly viv. Needs a trim. Ferns totally self sown. I’ve agonised over hard scapes and planting in past with mixed results. This one tree fern bunged in few plants I had last year filled out great. Do wish I’d stumbled in this site before everyone had left to the dark side(face book etc) suppose its inevitable. I’m trying to resist
  14. More celebrating mediocrity!

    first eggs after some heavy petting. 4 eggs one looked wrong then a second bloated but these two look ok for first attempt. I honestly have only heard one croak from tincs and it was from the other viv.
  15. More celebrating mediocrity!

    young love. This is the pair I was less sure about and were slightly smaller. I’d toyed with idea of selling this pair or swapping for Brazil/Patricia. My bigger girl and her good looking boyfriend seem to be having bedroom woes.
  16. Good morning froggers. I’m sure you guys and girls remember springs of yesteryear up to your knees in buckets of frogs spawn thousands of new morphlings under every log and leaping from every step in the grass. Well that’s changed. So many frogs toads even great crested newts by me decades ago (middle of industrial town Midlands) that it supported an equally impressive number of grass snakes. Well the snakes are long gone and frogs not far behind. Saw first male rana temporaria this morning stamped on probably on footpath (eeer slimy you know) the girls will be next out with two thousand eggs ready to go! Let’s give them somewhere to lay. Before I spend on my next viv I’m bunging a little pond in. More ponds = more frogs toads newts. The whole country looks after the blue tits why not the slimy ones??
  17. Terribilis build

    arvest bank atm near me bit more like it
  18. http://www.jasonsteelwildlifephotography.yolasite.com/aesculapian-snakes.php stumbled upon this site after recently talking about alien reptiles and amphibians. Some great images and info on hoppers creepers and slitheres. Thought it may be if interest
  19. adding cork bark

    Velcro adhesive pads? Think even the the least harmful fumes in closed environment is bad idea.

  21. what a b's some pepole are

    I know there were marsh frogs(ridibunda?) and edible (esculenta?) but not sure if they were every confirmed as that species or hybrids. One of my best was working in a council estate as as builder when a male peacock landed in the drive! We tried to catch it to add to my dads avian menagerie but he did one onto porch roof. I was told a colony of European tree frogs was destroyed by developers. Then as it turned out there was a change they had always been there (apparently)
  22. New to pumilio advice pls

    Hello all and happy new year. I’m picking up 2 or 3 possibly 4 pumilio colon in couple of months. The viv is approx 400 deep 500 high 550 wide. Intend to include multiple deposition sites and number of bromeliads. My question is in numbers and what to look for.may pop 3-4 youngsters in hope for a pair or 1.2 trio is 2.2 a no no in that viv?(guessing so) I’ve also heard that a trio will probably only produce a similar amount of offspring to a pair but I like the idea of more frogs to look at but would they be as happy in a trio. Any advice appreciated regarding these type of frog thanks john

    Yes that’s your girl Adrian. I know it’s not pleasant to hear but he’s one of many DIRTY FROG!
  24. what a b's some pepole are

    Anyone seen any “aliens”. I know you southerners can’t move for ring neck parakeets (saw some in west mids recently). But any real beauty’s. It’s a terrible shame Burmese pythons are eating the Florida Everglades but there is something exciting about finding an exotic alien. American bullfrogs down south.european tree frogs. Balearic wall lizards in Kent.aesulapian snakes on regents canal.cougars(not middle aged horny ladies) black panthers.garters corns? Eagle owls in northern quarries. Anyone add to list. Oh wait scorpions in shearness docs
