apologies for my poor videoing skills :oops:
hope these are of interest and go some way to answering some of the many questions raised about Biotodoma cupido
maybe round two will bring us a step further down the road to seeing captive bred cupido

:lol: subtle as a brick! I mentioned earlier that I messed up my photobucket account, since then I have been trying to sort it out but no joy, so I opened a utube account and am in the process of uploading all the videos there, here is the link to it, hopefully that will be the end of any missing videos.
