Breeding vs. quality of life
#1
Does breeding the frogs so much shorten their life expectancy? It seems to be the majority of the froggers goals to breed their frogs. Why is this? I have one pair of frogs that I would love to have offspring from but simply because I want to have 2 more frogs in their tank. I feel that would be a nice way to obtain 2 more so I can have a better chance at seeing the little buggers every now and then.

After hearing how many tadpoles a forum member has from her terribilis, I am praying I have all one sex. I would not know what to do with 90+ froglets.

The way I see it is if you had 90 froglets thats at least 90 more people that will enjoy them. Plus if you sell a few it helps pay for supplies. I know this is a bad example but it is kind of like a drug addict selling drugs to support his habit. But that is just my opinion......Scotty Bradley Tongue

Yes I can definately understand that view. I am grateful for all the people who do breed and sell their frogs because without them, I would not have my frogs.

Is breeding the frogs healthier than say having a tank of males only or females only? I have a 120g with 3 female azureus and a juv. that is taking more of a female shape that will be going in there once she is big enough. I had a male but my friend wanted to breed her azureus so I let her take him because I was not interested in breeding them. I am just wondering if it is better (healthier) for the frogs to have a male to go through the natural breeding process with even if I cull the eggs or if a tank of females will be just fine without the whole male calling, courting behavior.

I am pretty sure if you put one male in for the three females you will have a big mess on your hands. Female azureus do not like to share anything. :wink: ..........Scotty
