Doyle's Dart Den
Bowling Green, KY
After I moved to the Bowling Green Kentucky office of EnSafe, the people at the office took a liking to my frogs. The office manager (Derek) mentioned that he would like to have a nice display in the entrance way to the office and I mentioned that I had a nice display tank in storage. So with that the plan to setup the tank was hatched. The tank is a custom built 90 gallon tank built by Twin Oaks of Dickson Tennessee. It measures 48 inches long, 18 inches from front to back, and is 25 inches tall. Currently, the vivarium houses two male and one female Dendrobates azureus (the blue frog) and one female (expected) Phyllobates bicolor (the yellow frog). These frogs are of the family Dendrobatidae which is commonly referred to as the poison dart frogs. To read more about these frogs see my main page at www.doylesdartden.com. Since setting up the tank, the D. azureus have laid several clutches and have even hid some of the eggs resulting in the office getting to see the male carrying the tads around to place them in the water. See the photographs below.
