Default assorted pics, Mantellas, tads, darts and a Hyla

M. laevigata, adult is mom and the tads are hers. i think all the pics are of the same tad but i saw 2 others that i couldnt get a pic of. sorry for the quality but shooting through the glass wasnt the best. this is one of the two monsters i have see. it is over 1/2 inch







M. madagascariensis one of my females, for some reason out of my 2.2 group i never see the other female, always the two males(very camera shy but will bounce around when its not around) and this female.




Suri cobalt tinc on the hunt(another through the glass his colors are much better in person)



Hyla leucophyllata hiding under a leaf

very nice, congrats on the laevi tads. YOu will love the neonates. A few weeks after morphing, they have bright blue feet. JUst let the parents keep doing what they are doing , and as long as they provide plenty of food they won't become cannibalistic. Keep us updated on how they do,

Are M. laevigata always/exclusively egg-feeders? Staniszewski mentions egg-feeding in passing in his book, but seems to treat it as an occasional thing.

M. laevigata are not "obligate" egg feeders, but more like thumbnails and possibly classified as semi obligate. I have raised some outside of the parents viv without ever feeding them eggs, but they took much longer to develop and were not half the size of the ones raised by the parents. So, the egg feeding is important, but not necessary.
