I find it amazing how they morph out at the same time?! Really amazing

I do too Dar,but really it shouldn't be that way it should be expected I guess,mum goes around feeding taking it in turn so I guess it's in her interest to get them all out at the same time,so she can move on to the next lot,if the wild conditions are favourable. That's how I see it logically,but heel yeah I get what your on about. Oh mate this points to more than one so how many?

It's fascinating to watch and see them feeding. I'm not sure how many there are stu, there are 2 froglet, and maybe a 3rd, I thought i seen Someone dive for cover in the next leaf. But there are a lot of tads sprinkled all over the viv, I think I have 1.3 in the viv and they may all be feeding their own kids?!

More grats Dar and my question.....why in god's name do oophaga make that much mess of their broms,oh and here's the thoughtful(rarely) Stu answer are they passing something beneficial on to their kids ie gut flora/fauna in all that poo?

 

Oh a note to all: if you have a crappy brom about to die covered in muck,DO NOT JUST PULL IT AND CHUCK IT OUT!!  Check the living hell out of it first,never be fooled by how little water that brom holds,there might just be a tiny surprise or two lurking,,yup this beginner has that T shirt and thank god this idiot did check thoroughly enough...PHEW

 

grats Dar sorry for the tiny ramble,but tiny pums are fab I'd rather look an idiot than have someone else make a mistake that I nearly did

 

wicked bro

Dar,

I noticed you wanted to sell your Valle de Agua last year.  Do you still have them?  I have kept three females for the past two years, and never did find a male. I have to consider that these frogs are a dead end for me, since they have disappeared in the US. 

 

From what I've read, the Valle de Agua region is very large, and covers areas where slightly differnt morphs are found, such as Vulture Point or Cay Draco, and others. So, I am concerned that calling them "Valle de Agua" is not specific enough to identify new ones.

 

Anyway, I hope they are still with you,

Mark C
