    Wow! Froggy-licious!

    I think you need Miss Piggy to complete the outfit!

    (Do you have that poison frog, where the tribal guys rub an arrow on the frog's back to kill the monkey's?)

    Quote:Most of the frogs I own / breed are poison dart frogs ( some of the pics up there are of my odds and ends) But the bakhuis, H valley trivs, leucomelas, matcheos and cobalt are all poision dart frogs.

    I would be here for hours if I put up all the pics of the different kinds I have [​IMG]

    What's the passion, porkchop? Is there a market for them?
    Any relationship to pork chops and frogs?

    Gorgeous collection. I know those frogs can be so delicate, you must be an excellent keeper! I've seen some pretty magical terrariums built to replicate the best possible conditions for the more sensitive species.

    Quote:Poison dart frogs are harmless in captivity. The poison of the wild frogs is derived from their diet of ants, mites, and centipedes.

    What a stunning collection! I always wanted a big tank with some poison dart frogs in it but I know I could not devote the time necessary for keeping them. I already have too many irons in the fire!

    Keep an eye on the cat - lots of interest there. Beautiful frogs! How long have you been breeding them.
