Re: When and where is Frogday 2015?

Sorry I didn't see this earlier. Details for Frog Day 2015 can be found at www.frogday.org. Its less than three week away. There will be a get together at my house Friday afternoon before the event. If you'll be in town let me know if you'll be coming so I can get a head count. Thanks.

Re: Best way to sterilize collected leaf litter?

I've never done anything. Occasionally I get pesky spiders that I need to get rid of but other than that I do nothing. I really doubt that you'd pick up a parasite to tropical frogs in temperate leaf litter.

Best,

Re: Dendobates tinctorious 'Azureus' lineage(s) ?

Thanks. Its was Dr. Dale Bertram (medical doctor and I think he worked in the ER, maybe not) and he was up around Wisconsin somewhere (don't remember where although I could look through my old papers) and his importations were in the 80's. Wattley's animals were not small or no spot when he got them...

Re: can i ask a stupid Question? Azureus.

Back to the original question, there are only three, possibly four importations of Dendrobates tinctorius 'azueus' into the country. And all our frogs are related to those, which probably numbered less than 70 total, possibly significantly fewer. Dale Bertram brought into the US the first D. azureus...

Re: Phyllobates bicolour/aurotaenia wild hybrids

To my knowledge the research hasn't been done. Columbia isn't a great place to work and there is so much to do in safer countries it just hasn't been done.

I'm finding myself getting interested in Mantellas again. I kept and breed them years ago, but haven't kept any in over a decade. If anyone is getting rid of their's please let me know.

One group with various names over the years. Personally I liked BAD but it didn't stick. Almost every meeting is at my house. Meetings are on a Saturday at 2 PM, but not set on specific day - just when I have a Saturday and its been about three months. Next one will be in March, but the date isn't s...

Re: Why use scientific names instead of common names ?

Your correct - scientifically their all the same thing. The thing is that Dendrobates tinctorius all look the same except for color and they their behavior is pretty much the same across the board. Take away the color patters and I defy anyone to tell what morph is what in D. tinctorius . Common nam...

Re: Why use scientific names instead of common names ?

I'm a scientists and have used scientific names for various animals for over 50 years (https://profile.usgs.gov/cpowell/). They come pretty easy to me and I dislike common names.

Re: Why use scientific names instead of common names ?

Scientific names are used for just that purpose - scientific discussion throughout the world. You use Dendrobates leucomelas and scientists all over the world know what your talking about. Common names change from country to country and sometimes within a county. This doesn't touch on the subject of...

The ones in the title Excidobates mysteriousus. The other species I refer to in the second sentence are Adelphobates castaneoticus and A. galactonotus. Sorry for the confusion.

Re: Flaunting frogs of smuggled origins - E. Mysteriosus

I find this an interesting thread unfortunately with some mis-informtion so I guess I'll speak up. Populations in the wild have low numbers because of illegal collecting and the species has never been legally exported for any reason (unlike the other species mentioned earlier in the thread).

I've got 49 posts after a few years and maybe 500 on Dendroboard over close to 10 years. Not that many - so how's my frog cred? Posting on boards isn't a good way to figure these things out. People lie, people boast, people don't boast. The best way to judge people you can't meet is to call them, re...
