Re: first pumilio froglet
So glad to see more pum froglets emerging this season! Love it! We just found 2 more Vulture Point froglets in the last week. Here is a question that may benefit the OP, myself, and potentially a lot of other pum keepers..
I have read about different pumilio and that some may only yield 2 or 3 froglets a year and so far in the last 6 months our vulture points have given us 6 and just laid another 6 egg clutch last night.. So far, all eggs they have given us have been fertile but they obviously abandon some of their clutch otherwise we would be sitting on 20+ froglets (darn it) I noticed over the winter it was a bit more dry around the house which is a given here in Washington.. So breeding kinda stopped with most of our frogs on its own. Do breeders still try to encourage an off season with their pums? Our female seems to know what she is doing and only cares for what she wants.. The 2 froglets that emerged this week were from a 9 egg clutch so we may end up with a couple more, may not.. Just curious what others with much more experience have to say on this matter.
