Chimaira Basics - Poison Frogs the small species

Softcover. 94 pages, 95 colour photos. Introduction: I have been focusing on the husbandry and breeding of dendrobatids, the so-called poison frogs, since 1981. I am particularly engrossed with the small representatives of this familys various genera, e.g.,Oophaga pumilioorRanitomeya imitator, reasons for which also include practical considerations such as reduced space requirements for small terraria and the small amounts of food required. I have travelled to Central and South America on more than thirty occasions in a quest to learn as much as possible about these exceedingly interesting anurans, and I have not ceased to discover new and exciting details until today. This book is based mainly on my own practical experiences. Nevertheless, it does by no means claim to offer universally applicable directions for keeping and breeding dendrobatid frogs. There are certainly other routes that can be taken to arrive at the same destination, but what is described here is what works for me. You are welcome to copy parts or all of it to see whether it works for you, too. Let us hope together that the remaining rainforests will continue to exist and be seen as what they are, national treasures with a wealth of life that we have only just begun to discover. Their conservation is crucial for these frogs to survive in their natural environments so that our children also will have the opportunity to study them in the wild and not only look at them in amazement from behind glass.

Chimaira: The Complete Oophaga pumilio

The Complete Oophaga pumilio: Biology, Ecology, Captive Husbandry.

1st English edn. 8vo pp. 220. Illustrated laminated boards, over 500 colour photos.

This first monograph dealing with the strawberry poison frog covers a huge variety of topics. Beginning with a description of the natural habitat and the distribution of Oophaga pumilio, several important issues are discussed, including; why do some morphs of this species obviously show an aposematic colouration, whereas others show a cryptic colouration? In the centre of the book the morphs that were genetically clearly defined recently are presented in a table. This overview shows the local distribution, the range of colours and patterns and the maximum size that can be reached, respectively. This section is illustrated with approximately 200 photos by the late Chris van der Lingen. The following large chapter then provides information on the captive husbandry requirements of Oophaga pumilio. Frank Steinmann places the focus here on compiling a large variety of materials that can be used to build an attractive tropical terrarium, but he also recommends to consider the impact of using tropical plants. Feeder animals are also discussed, as well as the technical settings that are required to fulfil the needs of a poison dart frog. The large variety of plants that are available for frog enthusiasts today and which make a terrarium such an attractive display for everyone supplements this book/p

Terralog 21 Salamanders & Newts of Europe North Africa & Western Asia

Language: Bilingual in English and German

Portraying the tailed amphibians of Europe, North Africa, and western Asia, this is the first volume of the Terralog series to be dedicated to a group of amphibians. Particular emphasis lies on the fire salamanders whose distribution range almost equals the region covered by Salamanders and Newts of Europe, North Africa and Western Asia. Other representatives of this polymorphic order of vertebrates, on the other hand, such as the cave salamanders or olms, inhabit only very small and very particular natural habitats.

Over and above a representative photographic overview, Salamanders and Newts of Europe, North Africa and Western Asia provides photographs of eggs, larvae and juveniles as well as illustrations of different natural habitats. Forty-two distribution maps complement this photographic portrait. Each pictorial account is complemented by a symbol-based descriptive summary of the individual husbandry requirements of the respective species in human care. Containing more than 540 full-colour photographs, Salamanders and Newts of Europe, North Africa and Western Asia is a valuable photographic reference for both the scientist and terrarium enthusiast that bears impressive testimony of the character and natural beauty of the portrayed newts and salamanders.
