For the last few months, it’s been that time of year again. The frogs in the lab have been breeding. So far, this year has been a good year for reproductive output by the colony. We wanted to provide a few images of what we have been seeing in the lab…enjoy!
This male Darwin's Frog in our facility remained with the developing clutch (his hand rests on the eggs) for most of their developmental period.
This male is brooding a clutch in his vocal sac. He was photographed through the front opening doors of his terrarium without having to disturb him.
The babies are very small when they are first "coughed up" by the male. This baby was recently spit out.
Some of the babies develop green coloration early off.
We never keep more than two babies in a container. We like to make sure that each baby gets enough to eat.
MUCH more to come…
