Default 2,000 Spray Toads returned to wild

Just back from visit with colleagues at Bx Zoo, learned 2,000 more Kihansi Sparay Toads returned to Tanzania for release; I worked with these amazing, live-bearing creatures when they first came in, interesting story: Kihansi Spray Toads, Extinct in the Wild, Return to Africa | That Reptile Blog

Fantastic! I saw these guys (through a mega-awesome quarantine setup after Detroit almost caused their extinction!) in Toledo. Good to hear they're still on the rise.

Thanks, Kaysie...I was actually surprised they did so well, as some of the newborns are so small they struggle to down even pinheads. Varied diet difficult to provide; we used pins, springtails, fruit flies, flour beetle larvae; I experimented with ants as well, not sure if that is still being done, Best, Frank
