  Phylobates terribilis no longer the most toxic animal on earth?
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 05-15-2020, 01:39 AM - Forum: Science, Conservation and News - Replies (1)

This article describes Pacific Northwest newts as twice as toxic as the golden dart frog.
Very interesting how they're figuring out how these animals are producing toxins in their skin.  Given how these newts and many other toxic animals in the sea are using bacteria to produce the toxins.  We generally assume that poison dart frogs are getting their toxins from the insects which are eating toxic fungus and plants.  Could there be more to the story?

  Azureus legs look funny (spindly leg syndrome)?
Posted by: pet_tree_gnat - 05-14-2020, 11:20 AM - Forum: Hospital - Stress, Injuries, Disease and Treatments - Replies (11)

Hey guys I got a frog on a trade late last night and it was hard to see until this morning.  What do you guys think, is this a problem?  Is this metabolic bone disease or spindly leg syndrome? Or just flexible and thin?

My friend is stuck in quarantine in tropical paradise on the beach in Brazil.  Are there any plants he can bring back legally that are hard to find here?

  Springtails vs Mites - Let's get it on!
Posted by: Philsuma - 05-12-2020, 10:46 AM - Forum: Feeder Insects, Nutrition - How to feed your Frogs - Replies (6)

Springtail vs Mites...

I have heard the theory that all things being equal, Springtails will 'out populate' mites. 

I kinda believe that. I really only think that Mites take over a FF Cx is when the flies are not producing for either old age or poorly made founding stock or possible environmental factors.

Mite contamination in springtail cx's happens in two ways:

1. Springtail cxs are place too close to FF cxs and the mites simply walk onto the Springtail cxs

2. Mites arrive at the Springtail cxs on an escaped FF. FFs normally 'carry' grain mites that are just hanging out on the legs or the body of the fly. Not SUCKING the blood of the fly, just crawling around or tucked onto the fly. 

The FF desires to get moisture from the Springtail CX and finds an opening and settles on the Springtail CX media. The grain Mite(s) then disembark the Fly Taxi and voila.....mite contamination. 

Any thoughts? Theories?
