Keep those babies safe Zach. I'm not looking forward to having to move my collection once I graduate.

He's going up to Michigan (from Huston TX), so it's a healthy trip.

Well, Im finally here, as of 8 hours ago. Everyone traveled very well, with the exception of 1 of my imitators, which somehow managed to escape his container (a ziploc sandwich container, sealed with tape) and turn into frog jerky. I still have no clue how he got out, as the container still appeared to be unopened, just no frog inside! I even had leuc eggs hatch sometime during the trip, and the 6 tads appear fine. During the first night, in the hotel, the bastis and leucs were calling up a storm in the cooler.

It really stinks about the imi, that was my first and only frog to die on me, but overall, I was pretty relieved things went as well as they did. The leucs are in their viv, and the bastis and remaining imi will be in the viv tonight. I can hear the bastis calling back and forth right now from in the cooler. My adult beardie pair was my greatest concern, as Ive had them for several years. They were eating greens within 30 minutes of being unpacked. I was pretty amazed, not even any of my basking bulbs broke during the trip.

Glad to hear things went as well as they did...though sorry about the frog. I'm not looking forward to my move either later this summer. Although its only a 2hr drive, I've got about 150 animals to get there safely, most of them adult breeders...

Welcome back to the US Zack

Sorry to hear about your imi, that stinks. At least everyone else came through all right. I can't imagine moving all of that, what a pain.

Don't forget to update your profile from Denton, TX.

BTW, in case you didn't know, everyone up there in Michigan is a closet OSU fan. Feel free to jump on the bandwagon!

Thanks all,

I was able to stop by Josh's for FFs the other day, and was able to pick up a suspected 1.2 imis to keep the lone male company - so far, they are much more active, and the 2 definate males are calling their tiny yellow-and-black heads off. I actually managed to set up a rack yesterday (actually, 3, 2 for my frogs, one for my beardies/tads) - Ill try and get pics up after the weekend - thats if I survive the week. I really dont want to move any time soon!

And now, off to update the profile!
