    Default Colopus and Ptenopus pics


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I haven't posted in quite awhile and thought I would share a few pictures for fun.



    This beautiful colopus w wahlbergii hatched out just a few days ago!



    Parent Colopus w walhbergii of the above hatchling.




    Breeder pair of Colopus kochii. I have eggs from these that have been incubated for two years. Praying these hatch and will be worth the wait.



    This juvenile Ptenopus carpi hatched out late 2011. This is my favorite species of Ptenopus and have reproduced well for me. The hatchlings can be difficult to rear but do very well when they get past the two month mark.

    Enjoy!!

    Most hatchlings seem to stress easy and are intimidated by fast moving prey such as crickets. I had to painstakingly pluck the hind legs off pinhead crickets daily to slow them down. Not easy to do with out killing the tiny cricket! I also would cool the crickets but this would only slow them down temporarily.
    Some hatchlings would accept fruitflies, small spiders and small waxworms. Small termites are by far their favorites and almost always accepted. I tried small roaches but never had any accept them.
    After a couple months they aggressively pounce on crickets with no problems.

    Enclosures are more practical, not pretty so I'm not sure you'd want to see pics. They are large pull out tubs with of sand and 4 to 6 cm of sand and turned over terra-cotta dishes for hide spots.
