Scales and Terrariums

Hello again, after much without posting anything, here I bring you a short summary about the feeding of the dendrobates.

On the internet you can find very good and extensive articles but I think with the keys I will give here is More than enough.

Dendrobates eat live, moving food. Because they are very small frogs, they will obviously need even smaller animals. The most common form, which practically all uses is to feed them with fruit fly / vinegar (Drosophila melanogaster or Drosophila hydei). The D. melanogaster or "blonde" is smaller and hydei or "black" is somewhat larger, the latter being somewhat larger is the one I usually use for adult frogs.

. These flies are often sold genetically selected with atrophied wings so they can not fly and the house of flies will fill us.

The advantage of flies is that they are easy to get and very prolific, We can make crops and save money.

Also on the internet there are a thousand ways to make a Drosophila crop, here I leave you like I do (we will first need to buy a crop in an animal store)

- 2 ripe bananas.

Biomes | ASU - Ask A Biologist
Do these groups seem to be different enough to be classified in a separate biome? Do not worry, there is no right or wrong answer. The natural world is more varied than we can imagine, and the separation of similar groups can help us better define what we see.

- 1 tablespoon yeast.

- 2 tablespoons cornmeal.

- 1 tablespoon of yogurt.

- A little water.

Once cold, we throw about 40 flies in each crop and cover it with a kitchen paper caught with a rubber band and after a week the larvae will be seen, and in a short time new flies will be born.

To frogs we will feed them a couple of times a day, when they are adults with once enough, enough to eat them all before they are too dispersed. It must be said that it is better to have a frog "chubby" than thin, since it will be more likely to get ahead. Once or twice a week we will add a vitamin and calcium supplement, so that the frogs are properly fed.

There are other foods that we can give our dendros, such as bean beetle, microgrillos or colémbolos, but with The flies well supplemented we can feed them exclusively with that.
