Atlanta Botanical Gardens - Pics !
#1
Hey All,
Spent a few hours in the conservatory at ABG today...took 130 pics. Here are a few to get the thread started. First is Cruziohyla craspedopus, second is Anotheca spinosa, third is a free-range E. anthonyi (they were everywhere!).

Field, can I live there? Great pics man. I wish there was somewhere like that to go here. Unfortunately I can see more frogs sitting right where I am now than any of Chicago's zoos or aquariums.

Funny how the epips are running wild in both Baltimore and Atlanta.

What are you saying Phil? Becaues they both have similar management practices, or just similar display methods? Just looking for clarification.

Both Zoo's have large populations of free range epips....dunno why, actually. Maybe just a very fecund animal...maybe just a great niche that it's taking advantage of.

Free range - breeding free in the large open air displays.

Ok I gotcha. Still it's funny to think of free range frogs. I kind of envision a herd of frogs hopping through a pasture lol. I'd love to get to ATL and Baltimore to see those displays someday. It is interesting that both institutions picked the same animal though. There are probably dozens of species of Dendrobatids that would do well in that setting.

Maybe it wasn't picked at all. Could have even been a hobbyist introduction.

ABG DID have substantiated free range breeding of O. histrionicus...a time ago. Doubt THAT continues to this day, although it would be cool to research it.

Thanks for the compliments everyone. It truly is a remarkable place, one I hope to revisit often. Should be going back in July, so more pics to come.

The E. anthonyi don't look much like Santa Isabels anymore do they. Makes you wonder how important it is to keep the localities separate.

Pretty sure they have several morphs running around in there, I doubt that all are pure but I am sure there are some pockets that are. very cool place indeed. Phil I am not aware they ever had Histo's free randing in there, Pumilio yes and they are likley still there, breeding in a canopy area in some big broms.
