 BIRDS, DENDROBATIDAE AND OTHER AMPHIBIANS

On this site you can find more information on our hobby, that is still growing and changing forms. But our interest stays the same: all wildlife.... Yes I'm not kidding, wildlife in all his different forms and sizes. But because time, space and money is always limited, choices have to be made. We started out with birds since very young age, fish followed soon and later the aquariums were re-used as paludaria to keep frogs.


Well i would say, wander a round a bit here and if you have any questions don't hesitate to email me for further info.


Off course we will try to update this site as much as possible with latest info and pictures.

In 2014 I builded the new frogroom with a greenhouse on top of it to house some of my birds. The greenhouse construction I could buy cheap from a locale garden centre that stopped his activities. It took a lot of time and effort to move the whole structure to my place, rebuilt it while changing size and heights. It is up and running now, but not yet finished. The birds that are already in, enjoy it every minute, they have a lot of space to discover and a lot of things to do. And I must admid I also enjoy my birds a lot more in a setting like this.

For some of our tadpoles we use this system now, plastic tubs with +- 6 liters of water and oxygen. Tadpoles in this system do grow bigger than the small plastic cubs I use.

2 new aviaries, each aviary houses a pair of Chaco Chachalaca (Ortalis canicollis). They just look like dull brown birds but they are the smallest representatives of the Cracidae and do show interesting behaviour all year round. They lay 3 eggs, several times during the breeding season, and young are easy to raise.
