Default Second new member posts - maturation rates

Hey there guys,
Do you notice a faster maturation rate for individuals? Obviously amount of food consumed and supplements will make a difference, but have you ever had an individual mature faster than others regardless of food intake?

I have not. I had 5 juveniles, ranitomeya amizonica. They all seemed to grow at the same rate, and after the first month or so of calls I saw all 5 in the same bromeliad presenting breeding behavior. That instance did not produce eggs, but I am hoping they get back to it. What species?

By 'maturation rate' I presume you mean 'growth rate' rather than something like 'age to sexual maturity'.

In a group of frogs, one or more will often be dominant, and may prevent others from eating, or generally stressing them out. Even if you don't see such behavior, it may be present.

Just speculation from other animals (reptiles, mammals), but if I had a group where one or more members were noticeably growing more slowly, I'd consider testing them for internal parasites.

Group dynamics can be very subtle. Iíve seen individuals ó sometimes regardless of size ó freeze or stop hunting when in sight of others.

Their posture doesnít change. Just their level of activity changes without actually being in contact with the other animals.
