Default O. pumilio - Colon eggs

I got an unsexed trio of sub-adult Colons at the beginning of December, and apparently I was really lucky with the odds. The male started calling on the first day but the others remained very shy, so it was hard to determine what sexes they were. Today while trying to spot some frogs I found these, which already seem to be developing nicely. Going to be exciting to see them progress. Fingers crossed for seeing some tad transporting, always wanted to experience it first hand.

Best,
Jan Philip

Thanks - I am really excited to see them develop. I will try to get some shots of the frogs and the terrarium, but its pretty difficult since they are really shy. If I see them, they are usually sitting in a bromeliad and retreat out my sight as soon as they notice. The male is slightly more tolerant though.

The tads got transported, but I have no clue where they are now. The parents are extremely shy, usually darting for cover as soon as they see me. Have only been able to get this picture of the male so far.

don't worry about where the tads are just be aware of having water in broms and count 2 month to see the little ones

Dad won't be touching that, damn millipede's. Nice frog, looks like it could be Drago Colon, was there a locale attached to your purchase?

I do not think he will be attacking any millipedes, they seem to be doing good in my tank and I have never seen any get eaten. Its ok though, I like millipedes as well, so as long that they do not cause harm to the Frogs, I am very happy to have them.

Sadly I don not have any exact locality information. I bought them as "Colon", so they could be anything form that general area. I will try to dig up some more information though.

A small, but extremely exciting update: Yesterday I spotted the first froglet in the terrarium, hunting for food on the ground. So it seems the parents are doing their job pretty well so far. The froglet looked healthy and well fed, as far as I could tell. Sadly they are still skittish, so I did not get any new pictures to share with you.
