PHURU-WASI

 

BIRDS, DENDROBATIDAE AND OTHER AMPHIBIANS

Our main attention at this moment goes out to Cracids, these birds deserve more knowledge both in captive population as in-situ.On a lot of species there is not much know on their status in the wild, not even about the numbers that still appear in their habitat. These interesting birds are quite easy to keep, they are very hardy, don't make loud noises and eat an easy diet.
