I Have a Pretty Awesome Fiance!

My fiance had this painting commissioned for me for Christmas. I was extremely touched that he would go to the effort of having such a personal gift made just for me. Yep, he's a keeper! I may have to stray from obligates and thumbs to set up a viv for Azureus or Leucomelas now.

Pumilio Salt Creek in Their New Home

Ed just sent me a few photos of the F1 male and unrelated female in their new setup. It's so rewarding to see my frogs go to a great home! Moments like this are what this hobby is all about!!!

Tales from the Frog Room

A few updates from the frog room. The Frye Darkland pair unfortunately turned out to be two very volatile males, which quickly had to be separated; the Frye Golfitos have been cautiously getting to know their new home; and the rest of the quarantined frogs got a clean bill of health from Wasatch Exotic Pet Care and went into their permanent homes this week. The fine spot Bastimentos and Rambalas settled in and started exploring right away. It's been difficult to get pictures, but here are a couple that show their coloring fairly well.

The following two photos are from when the Bastimentos FS were still in quarantine.

One of the Golfitos has decided this film canister is his/her favorite spot to hang out.  I can almost always find him/her there.

I found one of the Popa kids running around today. This is the first time I've seen them since right after they came OOTW over two months ago. 

F1 Isla Popa Golden
And lastly, the first of the Bastimentos Salt Creek kids went to their new home with Ed. I couldn't be happier with this placement! He took the first calling male from my F1s and an unrelated female that I purchased with the group. She was too young to sex until she paired with my male last month so I figured she'd be a good match for this little guy. I know Ed will take great care of them!

Don't be Blue

Because who on earth could be sad while looking at these little sapphire beauties? The Frye line Darklands are finally in their new home. I cheated a bit and didn't wait quite as long as I would have liked for the microfauna to grow in, but they just looked so sad in their little temp tub.
