keeping amphibians? breeding any? just curious
I have a pathetic few..two firebelly toads, one Cuban treefrog and a large leopard frog, that we actually BOUGHT at Petco(my daughter needed another frong for a school display).
I don't breed anything. I am supposed to get some clown tree frogs(I think) from a trade at some point.
Just right now I have 5 Fire-Bellied Toads.
But I have kept Green Tree Frogs, Whites Tree Frogs, Barking Tree Frogs, Bullfrogs, Green Frogs, Fire-Bellied Newts, and Rough-Skinned Newts.
Oh and I do have a Afircan Dwarf Frog.
ive got the 4 dart frogs(2 azureus and 2 tincs) im looking for some USA salamanders but what i want isnt native to here or commonly bred in captivity(newts and sallys really arent as popular here as in Europe for some reason). im also on the lookout for CB Tylolotriton species(crocodile newts) but not having much luck
Have you thoguth about ordering online?
I bet I could find some breeders.
Newts and Sals are not popular here what so ever also. And when they are sold, they are sold or told to use in fish tanks with fish. Tropical fish that is. :-/
lol im in northeast Montana, ordering online is about my only option
There's tons of sals and newts here in canada.~Niki~
Great Googly Moogly!
Beware of the yellow snow!
Yes, salamanders are not that popular-I have always liked them too. It's easy to get tiger salalmanders at bait shops really cheap(like $1), but other large native US species are $10 and up(tigers cost @$20 online).
Keeping Chinese firebellies (Cynops orientalis) and raising some Southern crested newts(Triturus karelinii).
I'm expecting the first ones to produce eggs this fall as they did last year. I hear the second ones will produce like crazy but I have a while to wait for that.
