Re: Next weeks pumilio shipment!

Stu I stand corrected on the Basti's, I just saw pictures of them from the guy that got them all here in the states, they are in my opinion RFB Basti's. I have not seen them in person but they look dead on. I also heard that the Panama exporter sent his frogs to Europe first this time, so many of th...

Re: Poll- Can Dart Frogs Drown in a Viv ?

I had a female Retic dive into the center of a brom when I was leaving on a trip one morning, when I got back she was still there...and quite obviously dead.

Re: Next weeks pumilio shipment!

Sorry Stu, I was told no RFB but a few basti's. A few Escudo which are gone already, a few Popa's, Cauchero's, Nancy's/Solarte, Salt Creek & Esperanza....maybe others, they were busy.

Re: Next weeks pumilio shipment!

Very true Beth, though the last few imports from Panama have been in very good shape (figuratively speaking) there is always the risk of contamination...and depending on your collection the risk of losing many $$ should make everyone exercise caution with new frogs. Though anyone's collection may co...

Re: Shipping Tadpoles - Good practice ?

I have shipped probably a couple hundred tads over the years in pint size spring water bottles and as Cindy mentioned enough water to transition to the receiver's water gradually is critical. I have never had issues with those I shipped except once on some Retic tads and I think those were just mess...

Re: "Hybridizing”,Cross-breeding and Mixing Dart Frogs

I echo Rich's sentiment on the GO/Regina info, Mark Pepper had talked extensively to one of the originators and I have through the years heard from original importers as well as several Europeans all echoing the same thing, separated here because of $$ maybe but there called something else than they...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

I"M SPARTICUS.....oops I meant Mark P. Maybe a change of thread title would be appropriate, how about............. Pumilio and whole lot of other shit....gotta admit it's got a nice ring to it.
It is entertaining as hell but honestly Phil I wonder if it is ultimately healthy for your site?

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Rich when where you at my house and how do you know where my frogs are? For the record my new frogs are in a seperate room away from the rest of my collection, once they have finished treatment (worming and chytrid, sorry I don't treat for anything else so go ahead and blast away) and fed out they w...

Re: O. pumilio 'colon' isle lines ?

The only confimred lines I know of were the ones Scott Conley shipped out about 14 - 16 months ago, he had Drago and another location that escapes me but his were collected by him and then sent out by him. I got 3 pair of Drago from him ultimately, 1 pair is in Julio's hands, another was a lone fema...

Re: Direct Importation of Amphibians into the USA

Rich I see the wholesale price list but for the avg hobbyist these Pums have gone from $250 - $450 a pair depending on the morph, at least a few I know have picked them up for that and were happy to do so....as always supply and demand. As for limited understanding you are pretty dead on Shawn, obvi...

I thought I was contributing, my advice let someone else do it, pay the mark up and sit back and enjoy your frogs.

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

I thought I would also mention that Jason is also correct in that there are additional costs, depending on the circumstances and i have not done it for a long time but any where from $200 to maybe $500 total....so if you imported 500 frogs it would only be $1 per frog and outside of brokerage and a ...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

I will say one thing, dealing with the hassles and headaches of importing and then the stress of moving the imported frogs afterward is rarely worth the effort....unless that is your business. One can easily assume why SNDF does not take the 200 - 300 frog risk anymore tying up all that $$, it is fa...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Daryl the only reason I referenced you was so that Rich may get a chance to see the frogs in person and get a better idea, no offense was meant. Seeing you regularly offer frogs that were likely from him I figured you 2 were friends and he could easily get a look.
