Just a "thunk". (Or maybe a few "thunks"),
In talking about the incidence of belly sliders in South American
Annuals (a big geographical area to say the least) vs. African
Annuals (also a relatively big area - I jest) I have noted
mention of gooey anaerobic mud; at least for the Nothos.
Assuming this to be true for most Notho. habitats - what the
devil are we doing (and apparently successfully) spawning them in
a relatively, what would seem to be an aerobic substance like
And what kind of medium do S.A. annuals typically spawn in - goo,
loam or whatever? And if there is a distinct difference, perhaps
this is why we have such difficulty with belly sliders in S.A.
I submit that perhaps the difficulty with S.A. annuals is our
lack of knowledge of the nature of their habitats.
AND, while I'm on the subject - there all to often seems to be
very little information in JAKA about habitat for a given
species. By this I mean such things as :
1. Plant life in and on water's surface.
2. pH and Hardness of Water.
4. Water Temperature
5. Overhead Shade (are there trees?)
6. Is there flow or is the water stagnant?
7. Is the water brackish?
