More Frogs at the Zoo

Late in 2011 our field team assembled again and went out to collect frogs for our assurance colonies at the National Zoo of Chile in Santiago. Here are a few shots from that process…

Dante and Marcela hold up a bag of frogs from one of their collecting sites. It is nice to get freshly captured frogs right back to the zoo to start the process of settling them into their enclosures at the lab.

All frogs going into quarantine are tested for amphibian chytrid fungus.

The process of collecting a non-invasive skin swab to test for amphibian disease.

Each frog is set up in its own enclosure when in quarantine. The enclosures are cleaned out daily.

    I love frogs and want to be an animal rescuer when I grow up. Could we see pictures of the frogs habitat in captivity? It is a little weird to see them in the containers.
