First eggs from Head-started Gopher frogs!!!!

In November, we posted on the blog that Vanessa Kinney Terrell, graduate student in John Maerz' lab at UGA working on Gopher frogs found the first adult head-started Gopher frog at the release site. Today, John Jensen with Georgia DNR found the first clutch of eggs laid by head-started frogs! This was an incredible discovery and some encouraging news for Gopher frogs.

UGA Herpetological Society visits the Garden

Every year, the UGHS comes to Atlanta for behind the scenes tours of the Garden's amphibian conservation program, and Zoo Atlanta's reptile house. It's always a great visit! (Photo's by Henry Adams)
