The past month has been relatively uneventful. I have seen a slow and steady attrition of tadpoles from B5/26. As of today (7/11) there are 15 tadpoles remaining out of about 50. Their development has been slow since are only now beginning to show limb buds.
Members of B10-2 have all completed metamorphosis and are growing rapidly. I have begun finding new homes for some of them because I don't have the tank space to keep them all.
Under identical conditions two batches of eggs from different females will show a markedly different growth and survival rate. It is my belief that the African dwarf frogs typically available in the U.S. pet trade are a hybrid of H. boettgeri and H. curtipes.
I don't have plans for any breeding projects in the near future. My goal was to breed two batches and document their progress. This goal has been met. I plan to leave this site up and to make additions and improvements as time permits. My next project is the addition of a FAQ with answers to questions on the care and breeding of Hymenochirus. I also plan on adding a search engine to make finding specific information easier.
