Default Salvias tricolor eggs! Update 12/23/05

I just got 6 froglets from Jon Werner at the end of October and have them housed communally in a 37 gallon viv. Yesterday Gina noticed what appeared to be a male and female in amplexus but I thought these guys were still too young to be breeding. Also had not heard any calling.

Well, this morning guess what I found



Don't know if they are any good yet but a nice present to find on a cold and snowy Friday morning.

Jon - your frogs clearly rock 8)

Bill,

Any chance you have photos of the adults? I have been looking for salvias for too many years. I have a lone female, going on four years old that I have not been able to pair up.

Mine has orange flash marks at the back of her thighs and back of her front legs; blue stripes; red wne colored background.

Best, Yuri

Oh my gosh Bill, I've been wanting Salvias for several years. Put my name on the list if they start reproducing and you want to sell any of them

Yuri,

Here are a couple of recent shots of the salvias. I have a hard time thinking of them as adults but I suppose recent events prove otherwise :P





No blue stripes but those apparently come in with time.

Great news Bill. Funny that I was telling you in Thursday's chat that my holdbacks were beginning to breed as well! Keep us informed.

Yeah I thought that was pretty funny as well. I suppose the 1800 mile trip and transition to a new viv didn't cause them to lose a beat developmentally. Since they looked old enough, I just transferred them into their permanent home. Perhaps that helped. Thanks again for the great frogs.

Be warned - I may be pestering you with questions about tads :wink:

<<< crossing fingers

Be warned - looks like you might be up to your ears in them soon :twisted: While those eggs look bad, its a good begining... not much longer...

I do find it interesting on how they tend not to have adult coloration when they start breeding... at least not when they start testing the waters. They don't seem to really get it down closer to when they have adult coloration... or is it how we are raising them? Wonder if their development of color is linked to their age a bit - the younger the less color they have... young are usually ignored by adults... but you put in a subadult with colors close to adult... if its a male it will probibly have the stuffing beaten out of it. Kinda like the established males kicking them out of the nest... Stuff to think about...

Sorry to hear that Bill, I know how busy you must be with all those eggs. Poor guy, you probably never even get a day off. But don't worry, I think your a good guy, and I would be willing to make a sacrifice and take them off your hands for you. Send me a pm, we can discuss how much your willing to pay for me to take them. Thanks Bill!

Jordan :wink:

Well I added 3 black film cannisters to their viv and three days ago got a nice clutch of eggs. They looked good after being laid but tonight it's clear that at least some of the eggs are developing. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Well, the way I figure it, I have all winter to nag you about these, so come spring, you'll send some my way just to shut me up. I will give you until after the new year, and then start nagging whole hog!

Well done!
