    Re: Five Lined Dumpy Family 2019

    A quiet week for the Five Lined Dumpy Family...

    Quiet is good. There is nothing bad to report and everything seems to be stabilizing. I am preparing to start finishing up the second episode of Kingdoms. This will have Max and the Dumpy Family make their premier inn the series. I'm excited to showcase them and their family system. I got an UTH and they seem to be more active and alert. Fin the Betta Fish is doing a little better too.

    The Skinks will be back in episode 3 and it will have the footage of some interesting activity from the Skink Dynasty. These Skinks may get in the history books because they are behaving differently then most thought of them. These Skinks are more unknown than the other Skinks of their family.

    The baby Cope's Gray Tree Frogs are doing great but one baby is much bigger then the others. The Bumblebee Millipedes and Canyon Isopods are doing well. Everyone is great right now so hopefully things can stay like this for a while. Just a small update for you. There will be more when the next episode is being completed.

    I got the footage!!

    I wanted to let you all know that I got the footage of my skink eating blueberries tonight! I saw how he eats them and I was floored. He actually attacks them but he knows they are a fruit. It's so unbelievable to see. Not only did I record this but I FINALLY saw the Squirrel Tree Frog eat!! And while I was filming Pharaoh eating blueberries Florence was croaking right above him! I was in the right place at the right time tonight! I don't have the clips off my camera yet so I will have to get a picture to post.

    So tomorrow I am going to give Pharaoh different food to try. Like strawberries tomorrow I will see if he eats them. This would be really cool to document. Then I will try carrots and so on. Kingdoms Episode 2 is waiting on the Dumpy Family to eat the Black Soldier Flies and I'll get them on film but so far no luck. So we will just have to wait a little bit longer.

    Re: Five Lined Dumpy Family 2019

    Finally an update on the updates for the animals...

    So I got a new job and some changes are necessary so I can still keep everyone updated on the animals and their stories. So I think I will coordinate the update on them during one of the days I feed them. So the Five Lined Dumpy Family eats Tuesday and Thursday. This is just an announcement so next week I'll start this routine.

    Episode 2 is done with filming and I'm editing a little bit but it's about to be finals week so it will probably get done after finals week. It should be faster once the summer break comes. The Dumpy Family looks very good and I got new breathtaking footage from inside the enclosure as Max leaps around the from the plants to dive-bomb prey. There are some old clips but there will be a new perspective from the Dumpy Family in this episode. I am taking my native toads to the vet and will take a stool sample from Max so we will see how she's doing. I'm really excited to put this episode together because the clips looked amazing filming them.

    The Skink Dynasty is doing well. One adult Snail has survived so far and the Skinks are thriving. The Squirrel Tree Frog (Florence) has finally been able to adjust to being captive and he's eaten a few times in front of me. He's croaking a lot too. I got this and the purposed scientific discovery coming in the third episode. Pharaoh confirmed he ate fruit. I saw the strawberries were moved around and I know it was him. It's cool that a lizard who isn't supposed to eat fruit does. Even lizards have a sweet tooth! Episode 3 will have some great footage of Pharaoh and Florence being the stars. They truly make the night special and will make this upcoming video very memorable.

    Florence vs Spurgeon and Jeremiah...
    So there is a bit of a calling war going on in the hallway because now that Florence is comfortable he calls every night between 1-6 times a night. The Dumpy Family who is next to him do not like loud noise so they croak in protest of Florence. So then he thinks it's a competition so he calls back. He is 1/3 their size. He's such size to them but he knows he's safe so he calls. I honestly can't wait to see if one of the baby Cope's Gray Tree Frogs are a male because then they will be calling as well and it will be a noisy hallway with 3 species of frogs and 2 species of crickets. It will be a calming and welcomed noise too. I think it's funny and cool that the Skink Dynasty and Dumpy Family can communicate back and forth. It's a very fun night when they both are active and calling. I will be getting a female Squirrel Tree Frog for Florence so he's going to probably call more once she's in the Skink Dynasty. That's in August though. Maybe in episode 3 I will be able to get the Frog Calling War on video.

    Are you excited to get updates for the Five Lined Dumpy Family earlier in the week?

    Do you have frogs or amphibians or reptiles that communicate with each other in different setups?

    The Good The Bad and The Soon...

    I wanted to have a pretty solid update with a lot of activity and we have enough for a good update. So the good is everyone is doing well. The frogs of both enclosures are calling and eating and are happy. The male skink is eating a ton so he's probably very very happy. The snail is alive and the Canyon Isopods and Bumblebee Millipedes are as well. Another good thing is there are a lot of people who are following the Five Lined Dumpy Family on Instagram and it's actually the same amount of likes/followers as the Facebook page for the native species. That is a good thing to see that these animals are also appreciated! I hope that people will continue to follow them and that the Five Lined Dumpy Family will become some people's favorite part of the PA Woods Community.

    The bad is going to make some of you very sad. We lost another baby Cope's Gray Tree Frog and a female Mosquito Fish this last weekend. It was difficult but the Petco I get the fruit flies at they had all died so I ordered some flies and they got pushed back because of Easter so the frogs went a day without eating and one baby died. I believe the Mosquito Fish passed of old age. Still sad. Another not sad but odd thing is I haven't seen the female skink in a long time. She may have eggs or something because she hasn't been out and that's not good. More food and warmer temps and my male skink thrives but my female isn't in sight? It might be that some baby Pharaos and Amsis will hatch soon. No I don't think she's dead just not in sight.

    The soon
    The next video I'm going to work on tonight! No school for a while and I'm going to make a spectacular video featuring Max and the Dumpy Family soon! Maybe early next week will be the release of Kingdoms Episode 2! I'm very happy with the shots and I think this will be my favorite episode featuring them on my channel. I've never said that about the Dumpy Family either so it's going to be epic.

    The last part of this update I want to sincerely ask you of your opinion on something very important! So with more success and opportunity to grow on YouTube and elsewhere I am thinking of renaming my YouTube channel to PA Woods and Forests. Do you guys like this better for my name? Please don't make this your name of your channel if you have one to be spiteful to anyone reading who doesn't usually respond! Not trying to be mean but it's a serious question! Thanks and I am counting on the people who do read and always have quality feedback for their advice
