    Look ahead to 2020

    It's been a very challenging year with the parasites attacking my animals and all kinds of chaos with life, but I've been thinking about what I am hoping to accomplish from now and until December 31, 2020. I haven't written the care articles yet and I've been crazy busy. I am going to explain about the care articles and about my animals, Frog Week, and some other things.

    I have been trying to put ahead some time to begin writing the care articles soon. A look at the care articles I will be writing:

    Care Articles
    Independent Study (Amphibian Reproduction in Captivity)


    Nutrition Caresheet for Eastern Tree Frogs and Toads


    American Toad Caresheet 2


    Gray Tree Frog Caresheet 2


    White's Tree Frog Caresheet 2


    Northern Leopard Frog Caresheet


    Southeastern Five Lined Skink Caresheet


    Mixed Species Caresheet



    For the American Toads, Gray Tree Frogs, and White's Tree Frogs I believe I have more experience and education on these three species so I feel it's very necessary to create a part 2 to what I have already started. For the gray tree frogs and the American toads I will be talking about how to keep them in a native environment. I am not focusing on keeping them in a tropical setting. The whites tree frogs are different story we will just be talking about their care overall. I am excited to write about other animals and new experiences the hopefully can interest and educate anybody who reads it. there may be more care articles that are to come but tentatively this is what I'm looking at for this upcoming year. what are your thoughts on the care articles that I have proposed?


    Now it is time to explain more about Frog Week. I am looking to partner with Josh's Frogs again and different forums and Facebook groups, but also the reptile report and possibly new companies, organizations, and maybe others. I am going to do my very best to try to get more people involved in marketing advertising and supporting the project because I feel a frog week is very necessary if we are going to conserve and interest people of these animals. my gray tree frogs and toads will be a part of Frog Week this year. They will be featured in some of the episodes but they will not be the most important part of the project. You will see all the toads, gray tree frogs and maybe some others.

    Frog Week will take place at my college and at a state park. Some familiar places will be in this years edition as well. I want to show where the toads and gray tree frogs came from. The Abandoned Turnpike was a fun place, and the Western Woods (where I'm from) will have a role in the project as well.

    As for what's going on with my animals I will explain a little bit. I don't have to discuss the Gray Tree Frogs (Gray Army) and White's Tree Frogs (Dumpy Family) because you have seen a lot of episodes about them and I also have a thread rolling called Frog Forests. this project is completely focused on the lives of tree frogs.

    As for the Skinks (Skink Dynasty) they have been doing very well but I have a really big plan for them that I do not wish to reveal at this time so I have been keeping them away from the camera just because it is not their time to shine just yet. They are going to take part in a massive project but it's just important for me to note that they are all doing very well and I'm a release an update video about them at some point.

    Ace, Pious, Wellsboro, and Navi are all doing wonderful. Ace looks like a completely different Toad and she looks so wonderful I am very pleased with her. Wellsboro has continued to be up and down with the parasites but I think he is actually starting to rebound and he looks his beautiful golden color now. We are monitoring him and the Toads three out of the four have a fecal exam sent in to the vet so we are awaiting the results and after a couple more tests that we run on them it's possible Wellsboro can leave quarantine to live with Ace and Pious in the 125 gallon. I have not found any poop from Navi so I cannot take her out of quarantine until we find poop from her. All the toads are doing really well it's a huge turnaround as compared to last year at this time.

    I am planning to release and update video soon about these toads and I might as well throw in the skinks since they will not be featured for a while either. but I just wanted to explain that the animals are all doing very well even though we are battling the parasitic nematodes which could become a problem later on but as of right now the animals are doing as good as they ever have. I'm trying not to reveal any spoilers but I just wanted to give a tentative look at what I want to accomplish this upcoming year.

    Good tidings to Navi and congratulations to Welsborough on his two clean tests - he is a chunky chap.

    So the skinks are getting a fully bio-active enclosure?

    I'm guessing the toads will all be aroubnd the same time of introduction to the 8 footer? Not that will stop them trying to eat eachother judging by her attitude in the last 2 minutes of the video.

    Yes the skinks are going to get a fully bioactive enclosure. They are in one right now but I am going to create a biome that will contain the skinks and many invertebrates.

    The toads are going in that 8 foot enclosure and it's a shame but I have negative news to report for Wellsboro and the other toads
