    *Note* I originally posted this under the beginners section (that's me) but realized its more a question for you veterans. PM me if there is a way to reassign or delete posts. Thanks! Welcome fellow and grizzled froggers! PDFs are something I've always been interested in and I finally popped...
  2. General Health & Disease Treatment
    Adding on to Bd, I'm trying to compile a comprehensive list of pathogens that affect tropical poison frogs (dendrobatids in particular). This means I'm less interested in non-tropical/dendrobatid frog pathogens unless they are also known to occur in dendrobatids or other tropical frogs. I'm...
  3. General Health & Disease Treatment
    I am a somewhat newbie to breeding red eyed tree frogs. I met a RETF breeder on this forum and proceeded to meet him at a reptile show to buy his frogs because I was very interested in breeding. I bought 5 that day. 4 from him and 1 from another breeder. I already had 7 adults, 1 juvenile and...

I heard that PDFs can be carriers but show no symptoms because of the high temperature that they live in. If anyone...

  9. Science & Conservation
    The US Fish & Wildlife Service recently solicited comments on its proposal to list amphibians as injurious wildlife under the Lacey Act UNLESS certified free of chytrid fungus.
