    They are beautiful! Good appetite too, ha? I am surprised they are not after the mites.

    Tindo:

    Where are you originally from? The names of your toads sound very Argentine to me... just a guess and curious, maybe I'm wrong.

    The mites infested orchid is out of reach for them since they can't jump. Im sure they would have had a field day since they also love microfauna. Mites, aphids, springtails, little spiders, etc...... They are always flicking their tongue at something only they can do.

    Ferrari, I am from Colombia, and I chose Argentine words for thier names since they hail from Pampas, Argentina. Actually I think two were captive bred. If I get another one I will name it Gauchito, for those who don't know what that means, its the Argentinian equivalent of cowboy.

    That would be very satisfying to feed the mites to your frogs. They would get what they deserve!

    ps. Columbia? I was sure 1of 9 has to have something to do with the Borg hive...

    Ania,

    At the risk of sound even more nerider,
    1of9 refers to 1 of the 9 Nazgul from lord of the rings. Tindomul is one of them, I don't remember which though.

    Ah, one of the ghost kings? I read Tolkien books years ago, but the names were too difficult to stick in my memory. I stand corrected.

    Well, at least I won't accuse you of beeing a Borg person.

    Well since you started it. I remember Buffy the Vamp...


    Just kidding!


    On a side note , the mites haven't made a reappearance since the finger and facuet massacre. But I still want to treat the plant incase of eggs.
