This has been a wet spring with rains nearly every night. The breeding I have been getting has been amazing! In the last 4-6 weeks I have gotten no less than 20 clutches of eggs and mostly first timers. I have had 7 clutches from my orange galacts, cobalts, alanis, azureus, leucs, SI anthonyi, 1 developing quin egg, and from frog day alone I have had Veradero, blue truncatus, 13 variabilis eggs and about 200 hourglass treefrog eggs. Keeps me very busy, but I love it!!!

How is everyone else's spring breeding going?

I've got a couple pairs of first timers too that have kicked it up.......but what is annoying is the hot/cold/hot spells that sometimes come in......my frogs definitely respond when it warms up outside, and we haven't turned on the AC yet, and the ambient temperature in the house goes up by several degrees.

My azureus and leucs haven't started yet. We're in a drought, but I don't know how the frogs would know that, given that they are in climate and temperature controlled environments. I've been misting and feeding them like crazy.

My variabilis have been giving me 5 to 10 eggs a week for the past two months. Both pairs of pumilio cristobals have froglets and tads going, but I haven't heard a peep out of my blue jeans male (sexed trio) or Mancreeks (female and two suspected males). My leucs, oyapoks, and powder blue tincs are still too young.

Isn't it funny, but they seem to tell what the temp and humidity is outside.......they seem to kick up breeding and calling when the environment changes outside the house.....

So, you're basically telling me that they have a little miniature weather station somewhere outside my house that is wired to each of the vivs? Hmmm, I wondered what that tiny little spinning thing next to the copper wire was doing on the roof.

Lucky people! I had my varadero court for 20 minutes then they slept right next to each other and woke up and did it again! But no eggs! What can I do? This is the 5th time something like this happened!

So, what if I sealed up the viv really tight, put a bulkhead fitting into the lid and used a vacuum to drop the pressure inside the viv, while playing recordings of thunder and rain?
barometric pressure

Given them some cigarettes.

I don't think you could seal it well enough and still be able to access it. But theoretically I guess you could. Isnt it just easier to wait for a storm? The storm sounds would be unnecessary


WAIT: If you reduce the pressure inside that container, you are stripping breathable air out of the viv to decrease pressure... not a good idea

I was kidding about the vacuum. I suppose I'll have to wait a couple of weeks until we get into our afternoon thunderstorm pattern or play videos of frogs mating in front of each viv. :eek:
