Haha, I tried to get a female a while back but the only person willing to sell me one was in canada. I'm still kicking myself for not buying this huge albino female for 30 bucks I saw at a show.

Aw. Well maybe there's another show coming through. 30 bucks is cheap for a proven female...

Yea it was but at the time I was thinking that I wasn't going to breed anything. I could possibly have some babies already if I had bought it back in July.

Thanks. They are tiny tiny adults. Haha. When I first saw them in a care book i got years ago I thought they were about the size of a tomato frog. Man was I wrong!

Their common name varies but I guess if you want to put the most common.... Rainbow burrowing frogs. They are around an inch maybe less. They're like a fat dart frog.

Just awesome frogs. I really hope they breed for you. Someday I would love to work with these guys but I cannot imagine them being imported for much longer with them being listed as Critically endangered.

Scaphiophryne gottlebei, and from my knowledge they have never bred in captivity.

Thats what I thought too but if you look on the sidebar of your YouTube vid there is a vid from Italy of Scaphiophryne gottlebei tadpoles.

gothaicus - I think those were collected from a certain area. That's the way it came across to me in the caption thingy...but I could just be assuming too.

Yes, I did get 5 of these guys from Swanee's Exotics. They are super healthy and doing really well! I am very impressed!

Mego, I pretty sure you are right. I didn't catch that on the first watch. My mistake.

Jason says the rain frogs will be in hopefully in a few weeks...I'm excited. I definately want to get some, but I wonder how to make soil sandy enough for them??? And they eat termites???? i'll have to maybe breed termites? HMMM....Maybe they'll eat small roaches...?

I have some Scaphiophryne as well (marmorata) and I was thinking about setting up a tank for breeding.
Where did you get the ideia of a rainchamber like that? I still don't know how I'm going to do it but from what I've read, I think you need some kind of substrate other than pebbles, like coco husk, vermiculite, turf...
I also read that you need some time to simulate weather changes according to the diff seasons to get them in the mood. The final step is to flood the substrate hoping that they breed.
Mine have been calling for a while, probably 1 month but I don't have much time now to breed them

Yea, I know. I was hoping that they would be cycled already since they are WC. If anything I would put sand under the water. Also I got the idea from, I don't know i just thought of it.

What a neat frog species! Are they like pacman frogs? Do they have teeth and eat pinkies and such? Congrats on the new guys!

Do they every do anything..or just burrow underground? Or is that only during the day?

Thanks, and only in the respect that they burrow.

Do they have teeth and eat pinkies and such?
No teeth and a pinkie is probably around twice their size.

As long as I've had them all they've done is burrow.

But I would use that water rain chamber as a pool for my big 'ol Pyxie frogs!
Haha, yea i'm sure mine would enjoy it, but I plan on using it in the future so I don't want to let it get ruined.

do you know if they ll loose a bit of their color??
They are adults so I would doubt it.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Scaphiophryne gottlebei, and from my knowledge they have never bred in captivity.

Havent noticed gottlebei around, but have seen S. marmorata for sale as cb babies last year.

How these are btw ment to cycle? With some aestivation period I could assume?


Only dead fish go with the flow.

Yes I would assume that a dry period would be needed.

As long as I've had them all they've done is burrow.


After a month or two they'll probably get used to the vivarium and you'll see them hopping around. At first mine kept only their heads out, but know by the end of the day they get out in the open. One of them even chases crickets, instead of using the tipical ambush technique they are know for.
Here's a pic of my two male S. marmorata.

Thanks for the info, JoaoAvo. Great pic.
I really like marmorata. I'll get them at some point. Along with pustulosa.
