Default E. hahneli breeding

We received 6 E. hahneli 'Iquitos' from Understory Enterprises last June and they've grown well and flourished as a group in a 20 gallon long viv complete with wood hiding pieces, magnolia leaves, etc. I was fairly certain by their body shape that I had both males and females in the group and last night I heard and saw calling by one of the males. So today, decided to include some egg deposition options. Lifting the lone coco hut, I discovered a clutch of eggs on a decaying leaf! I carefully removed the leaf and the result is shown below. While there are some infertile eggs, at least one good tadpole is developing.



A careful search of the leaf litter revealed another egg clutch that is obviously much newer so I have left it in the viv for the moment.

Bill

Thats good to see! Hopefully my Hahneli will get down to some breeding soon :roll: the male calls away, and there is definitley one male and one female in the group (from body type-its quite distinctive)

Good luck with these!

I think the "Tricolor Bill" title should officially be replaced (er, modified)...

Epi-Bill-obates anyone?

Yes the call is very strange...I almost didn't recognize it since I have adult crickets (food for chameleons, geckos, etc.) in the frog room.

Congrats on the breeding! Once they get going there's no stopping them!
Mine produce about one clutch every week.
