Default Busy Saturday

Most weekends, Saturday is my main day in the frogroom, and in addition to the regular maintenance schedule, today seemed to be particularly busy:
  • Two egg clutches from Dendrobates tinctorius Patricia and Dendrobates leucomelas
  • Lots of new Mesotriton alpestris apanus larvae
  • Set up some new rearing boxes for froglets:


But the funniest thing was moving an adult Dendrobates azureus female into a viv with a younger pair who haven't got the hang of the breeding thing yet. I wish I'd taken a video of the ensuing chaos. I had been slight;ly worried about the possibility that the females might fight, but instead, as soon as she clapped eyes on the male, she was after him, chasing him round the viv, stroking and generally behaving in a lustful fashion. He looked terrified!

I think I might be needing those new frog boxes soon :-)
