Default frogs as alarm clocks?

is it possible to regulate when the frogs start/stop calling by setting their lighting on a timer?

if i put them in my room could i get them to the point where they start calling at 7 am?

it sounds like a much nicer way to wake up than the electric screeching of regular alarm clock.

They could be fairly reliable, but I wouldn't bet my job on them calling, or their calling to wake me up.

...Then again, the lights coming on always wakes me up.

really im just worried that the frogs would start calling as soon as the sun came up. i would not want my alarm clock to be stuck at 4 am.

I have a number of frogs that start calling when the sun comes up and only start calling when the lights come on rather than that, when the sun comes up later than the lights come on :lol:

I also have some that like to call after the lights go out rather than when they come on :roll:

My Panguana lamasi make a bit of noise as soon as the sun starts coming up, but they start HOWLING almost immediately when the lights come on. SomethingI often wonder though, is whether or not they know the lights are about to come on (as they tend to get a bit louder just before hand) or they just get louder as a bit more light sneaks into the room from outside.
