tpwd.state.tx.us is accredited with the photo of the Mexican burrowing tadpole picture found on the Tadpole development page. Here is an excerpt from the page, and a good reason to visit the site and read on: 'Texas Toads were surprisingly silent, it is a common anuran in this area. One Mexican Burrowing Toad breeding site has been eliminated. It was a small impoundment and has been bulldozed. This was in fact the only site in which I have actually seen Mexican Burrowing Toad tadpoles. However, ...'
CREDITS, RESEARCH (LINKS)
Inibico.com Inibico is a wonderful group of mostly German Scientists who research poison dart frogs in South America. Their research has helped many frog populations worldwide. Their health treatments are wonderful, and I have studied and used some on my own frogs. They are a very positive organization, I hope you visit their site.
The following excerpt is from the Research in Arabuko-Sokoke forest website. A very interesting and informative site.
During the long rains of 1992 in the Arabuko-Sokoke, scientists were able to document frog species in this forest emerging at different times to begin breeding; thus, there are "early" breeders and "late" breeders. On the night of August 27, 1987 Academy scientists watched as a spiny reed frog approached a foam nest as it was being constructed by two males and a female foam-nest treefrog, about 8' above the water.
The spiny reed frog actually thrust the entire forward half of its body into the foam nest and appeared to be eating eggs within the nest. This behavior was unexpected as frogs usually eat living insects.

Steve Bush and colleagues have done some NEW and UPDATED research on chytrid. By the way, Steve isn't taking credit for research, he's just trying to bring it along to the frog community. Read about it here: Chytrid treatment.
