Bluetip,
I think Joe is saying that keeper's errors are reponsible for the frog's death. And I would agree! ie. feeding, temp, humidity, supplements, stresses, etc.

In general, buying imports and not giving them the proper meds or care.

Personally, accidents are the major reason for mortality with my collection.

oh!

hehe, pretty slow...this is what we call here LPU or "low pick-up unit"... :oops:

Of the factors though that you mentioned below, aside from food which is an obvious...which is the most often problems that one would encounter? Is temperature a real major stressor? As I live in a tropical country, my temperatures are a standard 75degrees-80degrees...is this going to be a real problem for me if ever?

thanks

Blue,

Sorry about that... I can be a little obtuse. Keeper mistakes are definitely #1. Everything from fruit fly shortages to escapes to temp fluxes to other conditional mistakes are common problems. The temps you desribe are a little high, but if you can find a cool spot in your house that stays pretty constant, you may be able to make it work. Heat spikes can be a serious problem, so plan accordingly. Good luck!
