I just got a couple of males to place with my two females and the second day I got them the female laid eggs. I'm pretty sure the male fertilized them but I can't be positive as they don't look like any other eggs that I have seen. They aren't solid dark as my other frogs eggs. Can anyone who has raised or seen Pumilio eggs lend some insight? Thanks!

The best advice I could give you is to be patient and leave the eggs alone. The bri-bri are good parents and will take care of anything.

Below is a pic of a clutch of bri-bri eggs. In the clutch there are good and bad eggs. The good ones are not as 'black' as tinc eggs so there is a good possibility your eggs are good.

Bri-Bri eggs:


Good luck,

I'm gonna have to go with Melissa on this one. In my experience the even some of the eggs that look gray end up being fertile. There's no way to really know unless you use a microscope. I don't advise this however. Just leave them there and give it a way days.

Good luck!

My highest recommendation would be to just sit back and watch them. Removal of the eggs would be pointless and if the clutch goes bad, the frogs will 'sense' this and produce more. Human intervention is once thing that shouldn't happen when attempting to breed this species. A pair of bri bri that I had in the past produced many clutches and I had 4 moprh out successfully. Though bri bri lay rather large clutches for pumilio, you can expect only half of them to make it to neonates.

Hey Bill,

I have been just sitting back and watching for too long now. Then again, I have blue jeans and not bri-bri. I have stopped counting the number of clutches that were fertile, but that they didn't raise. Last count was over 30 clutches of fertile eggs and they still haven't taken care of any of the tadpoles. UGH! Bill's right though, human intervention need not apply.

Thanks everyone for the insight! I appreciate all of your advice. I will definitely keep my eye out but will stay away from the eggs. Bummer about the blue jeans tads man......maybe we should trade females?
