    well, Tweedle dee managed to squeeze out of a little hole today, i found her but i dont know how long she had been out, she is pretty sickly looking, im keeping her moist as well as i can and she is still moving but it does not look good... :( it looks like she was out for a couple hours and started drying up, ill keep you posted but im bracing for the worst.

    ICU TIME!!!!
    If you haven't already done it, get the deli cup she was shipped in, line with damp paper towels, and plop her in there. Cover with another damp paper towel (giving her enough room to move and breathe) and place the lid back on. You can put the whole container with her in it inside the terrarium in one of the warmer corners. Check on her in the morning, but try not to peek at her until then. The more stress you create for her right now, the worse off she's going to be.

    well i got super lucky!!!! i can not expain how close dee was to dying! her eyes were white and skin was dark, and she was hardly able to breath, and she's now hopping around like nothing happened, i put a few extra fruit flies in for her and her now back again eyes spotted them pretty quick! frogs are amazing!!! i still cant believe she is fine!!! im sure she is still stressed out a bit they both are, but i really think she's gonna be ok, thanks gal for the ICU rundown, im gonna hang on to those condiment cups in case they ever need them! the hole is taped up now so no more stunts, im just glad i found her when i did and that for once Ruca's prey drive was paused! :D

    and apbtmom the flies came USPS today (wish i would have known they were not comming UPS) so that was a BIG relief as well, but its the suppliments that are not here yet which they really still need, but i now have a large ESTABLISHED culture that will last several weeks, not some expensive petco version with 30 flies.

    Try PetSmart for flies. The ones around here have started to carry wingless varieties, and it would be a whole lot more convenient and cheaper than having them shipped...unless your starting a colony?

    i dont know where a petsmart is, and our petco is 1 1/2 hours away, their "cultures" had about 30 flies and no larvae and didnt produce any either for 10, even if they did they said to expect only about 500 flies, the ones i got from black jungle had about 200 live ones and larvae and am to expect a couple thousand from it and it was only 8 dollars plus shipping then i got supplies for 10 more cultures, so we'll se how well i can grow my own :p :D

    LOL! In a few months, you may have to become the local supplier. That's going to turn into a LOT of flies. Or you'll just have to get more dendrobatids :D I vote for the latter.
