Neotropical Amphibians in Kansas

Hey guys,
I've been on this forum for quite some time but it's always nice to post pictures of frogs and vivs so I can go back and see how my tanks and collection has changed over time. I just got done moving to a new place so I figured now is a great time to do so. I'm finishing up school so my free time is limited, but you bet your ass I spend it in the frog room or at the lake when I have it!

I'll start with some frog shots and follow it up with a few viv pics. All shots are through the glass, some good, others not so much. I'm going to try to convince my roommate to get some pictures with his camera, as he's a digital arts major at KSU and they get to play with more fun electronic toys than I do in the biology dept.

A few of my Phyllobates terribilis 'mint'







Oophaga pumilio 'bastimentos'











Epipedobates anthonyi 'salvias'











A few random

Thanks for the compliments guys, it's been a life long passion for me.

I have some Adelpgobates galactonotus 'yellow' tadpoles currently, salvias have been laying eggs and I believe the bastis are caring for the tads in the bromeliads.

Very nice tanks!!!!

I'm glad to see someone else in Kansas interested in this kind of stuff. We are far and few between!

I would love to see your tanks in person sometime. I'm in salina for my Kansas Diesel Crew meets (my other hobby) From time to time.

If you don't mind or were available I would love to see your tanks and pic your brain!


Beautiful Vivs!
