Hey,
I posted this on some other sites and i thought i'd share here as well...
Yesterday was a big day for me, frog-wise!

Hylomantis lemur arrived! They're only 4-5 months old so I got a ways to go, but eventually I hope to get them breeding. Lookin to bring these guys back from the brink of extinction!



Then, found my white's like this...



I know reproduction is just something they "do", but she looks pretty happy in the last shot! Not sure if I can handle any more eggs/tads, but I'll see what I can do!

I got some A. annae on the way, but after that I need to chill...(who am I kiddin?)

I get the pleasure of caring for 5 lemur tree frogs at work. We have a 2.3 group that we got from the Como Zoo. They are definitely awesome. They just now went into their exhibit and we have a rain chamber set up for them. One of the females is gravid. Good luck breeding them.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'll get some shots up of their enclosure, but it's only a temp set-up. I'm going to be housing them in a 40 breeder vert shortly tho.

On another note, I got my second batch of white's eggs yesterday. Yikes....

Nice frogs, but personally i'd never buy them this young. In my experience frogs this young are quite fragile.

I hope they do well for you.

Thanks for the concern but they're not that young. Frogs this age (4-5 months) are routinely shipped and kept successfully. I'm confident they'll do well.

Great looking frogs, the lemurs and white's. I've been seeing more and more of the lemurs and I'm considering acquiring some at this point, they really are pretty cool frogs. Thanks for sharing!

They're beginning to get more confident in their new home and are displaying some interesting behaviors. Really cool to watch. Anyway, Enjoy!

They're lookin good and are pretty cool to watch at night. The only thing about them is that since they are naturally a very slender frog, Im constantly concerned that they are too skinny! But they hunt actively and defecate so I know they're ok.

It's not much to look at at this point, but I'll get some pics of the enclosure up later.

I have the same problem with my Super Tiger Legged Monkey Tree Frogs. Their thinness worries me. Every morning, I scour their enclosure to count poo, lol. Lots of poo so I guess they're eating. :p

How are you viewing them at night? Do you have some sort of night time lighting? I've tried infrared lights that make them go back to sleep and some other night time light (blueish purplish color) from zoomed that is too weak for me to see them. :mad:

I was just looking at one right now, freaking myself out at the thinness...Im gonna drive myself crazy! I used to do the same thing with my p.tomopternas!

To view them, I just turn on a soft light across the room. They hide after a few minutes, but I get enough time to see them active.
