I've been recently working on acquiring a number of S. gottlebei
. The task has been challenging, although not impossible, especially in my neck of the (Canadian) woods.
During that time, I've been gathering info on their natural habitats, on the explosive breeding habits, etc. I've also been in contact with Brent Brock of TWI as per one of their on-going S. gottlebei
projects. Brent has been quite generous with the info...
I've created a Facebook group in order to encourage a collaborative efforts of members from different boards. I am well aware that we all have our loyalties to ours, and respect this. For this reason, I thought that creating a neutral ground where we could exchange on them could motivate a larger group of us/you to help on the project.
The idea is simple: gather as much info as possible on them and build a suitable enclosure to promote their survival in captivity.
More details are on the Facebook page. But one detail is key: who ever wishes to join is encourage to share the info on their respected board. This is for the S. gottlebei
first and foremost.
Hope to see some of you there. Here's the group: http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=gro ... 5339814318
PS: I will cut and paste this info on a number of boards. Just an FYI.
