Hi all,

Is there anyone that has experience keeping these anurans? I'm particularly interested in information concerning breeding them, but other information is welcome too.

They are interesting little frogs that like to spend a lot of time burrowed into the substrate. I only worked with males so I wasn't interested in trying to breed them.

Ok thanks both for the information. But I'm still looking for breeding experiences. Anyone else?

Yes, I kept and bred them once. They have to be kept in not too dry soil and well fed. Then you'll induce breeding by putting them in a rain chamber with shallow water (about 5 inches deep in the deepest point). Females must be quite overfed prior to introduce them into the rain chamber. tadpoles are both bottom feeders and suspension feeders. Use very fine fish powder to feed them.
Hope it helps even after this long period.
Bye
Emanuele
