Peter Johnson will be the speaker at the February meeting. Peter has been breeding frogs since 1985 and established his Frogarium some years ago and has had to ‘jump through some hoops’ to get it approved and open to the public. You may have noticed the enormous bird-cage structures at the garden centre at Boambee (Garden Mania as we know it), this is where Peter’s frogarium is situated.
Peter says that ‘frogarium’ is not actually a word however, he hopes that it will become quite well known!
Peter is especially proud to be the only person who has successfully bred the Giant Barred frog in captivity. This frog sprays its eggs on the roofs of caves, where they cannot touch water until the tadpole forms.
We look forward to hearing more about Peter’s passion – frogs at the February 2020 meeting.
