New Rio Branco Pair - pics
#1
So after winning Shawn's facebook auction for my pair of frogs I set them up in a 24x18x18 exo terra with a drip wall on all three sides for a temporary home as their permanent home is still growing in. To my amazement I have developing eggs just under two weeks of owning them. I also have learned since having them that males are few and far between from this last shipment of them and they can be finicky breeders with sporadic breeding. So here is to hopefully a successful breeding pair. Enjoy the pictures.

Edit*- I'll have to upload them through Photobucket so I can post them. Pictures will come tonight

The orange one is a pretty 'iconic' Rio Branco , at least to me. The spotted one is....different.

Okay guys I have some great news but now freaking out. My rios as everyone who has seen laid eggs and only two of the eggs made it. I wasnt to worried with that since I have two fireballs that hold water in their axels. Well today I come home to find my female transporting a tad and thought she was moving one of the two only to find its a new one. So then I start looking and find a new clutch of four eggs that was just laid a day or two ago. My question is how do I add more areas for deposit sites without stressing out the frogs? Is it common for a pair to lay this much? Ive kept pumilio before but never seen three or more clutches laid in a months time frame with developing eggs. Enjoy the pictures and please share advice.

Wild caught frogs often exhibit a rush of breeding activity when first acquired. After a while they tend to resume a more normal pace.
I would not disrupt them by rearranging too much. Perhap add a few film canister clusters, but otherwise let them settle in and cross your fingers.

How long does this take cause these have been in the US for over 6 months.

I use 2 broms per every obligate at a minimum. I would place a couple more broms in there. I doubt it would stress them out too much.

It can take some time. You may also be seeing a general disruption and new partner surge in activity.
