Since pumilio are kept in a mostly sealed terrarium fitted with a glass top to retain a high humidity. Would their vocal calls be able to penetrate through? How much would the glass top and the terrarium hold in the sound of their calls? Can someone please provide me with a recorded audio comparison of the two that is one with a open and a sealed top? I would like to hear the difference. If you prefer e-mail me privately.

I can hear my bastismentos called from downstairs in my house, while watching tv. My tv was blasted too when i heard this because my gf is partially deaf in one ear. My tank is completely sealed so that only the smallest ff can squeeze through the crack between the lid and the tank. I would say their call might be a bit louder then the leucs.

It really depends upon where you are going to actually be keeping your pumilio vivariums. I once had a Bri Bri pair in a small hex display in my bedroom, but ended up nixing that idea due to the those early morning calls by the male. I now keep all my pumilio OUTSIDE of my bedroom! Their calls aren't annoying by any means, but at 5am, I'm not quite in the dart frogging mood!
