Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Salt Creek without a flash, pretty accurate depiction of the color . http://i405.photobucket.com/albums/pp133/markpulawski/004-9.jpg Interesting quarantine tank for wild caught pums... Any pics of orange with solid green legs? Yes it is and no not yet, though most of mine are a tangerine orange col...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Damn I thought I was done, I did see 1 pic of a Loma and man was it stunning, the ones Pat got were very similar to what is here now..green frogs with blue undertones and a few small black spots. I have heard on Loma there are always a very few stunning individuals but most are understated green wit...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

OK 1 more reply, no Rich I am not questioning your word, I don't know if you collected your frogs, we've never had that conversation, if you did great then you know and can say with absolute that yours are site specific. I was just saying in general unless you fall into the Mark P circumstances anyt...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Yes but back in the late 90's and even early 2000's access to data and info was severly limited compared to today and back then our hobby did not demand much in the way of that info. Labeling anything 100% I will admit is wrong, Rich's GPS frogs 100%...did he collect them and mark the spot himself? ...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

though not on topic I will say this, when I had 30 tanks my hobby seemed like a job, now that I have fewer I enjoy them much more but I am always wishing I had room for 4 or 5 more tanks.

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

I pass off a few to friends to work with, maybe they don't have the $$ for frogs like some of us but if they are good and conscientious I have no problem doing breeding loans. And trust me Rich, if I could have proven anything I would have commented on the guy. I went to many for proof and no one co...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Can't bash the guy for making up info? No? This is the same guy who has gone underground. the same guy who has not yet made it right for others in the hobby. The same guy who got "Zach Allen Smith" to buy from me , because Josh Lucas knew I would not sell to him. No, no reason to bash the...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

$600 for a pair of BJ's is cheap, damn Rich how much do you charge for yours and yes I saw a pic but I seem to remember someone saying you can't ID Pums from a picture? Did you say the rest Damian brought in weren't BJ's? I have orange and green frogs in my group Rich, actually very orange, I also h...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

I agree you really can't say 100%, we have all learned the hard way with that but I will say I am convinced and comfortable with the determination. I would also have no problem with selling their offspring as SC. I don't see anyone has a problem with people selling BJ's, your may have data Rich but...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Rich asking me to ID a Pumilio from a picture? My 8 do look like the ones on the right with granulated backs, can't really see that in the pics nor how big the frogs are, it's all relative until you can see the frogs in person. As I said Rich take a look when they show in Chicago, we would be intere...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Because back in the 90's locality data was pretty much nonexistant....as was the internet when this went on. Wouldn't you agree Rich that over the last few years information has progressed at an exponential rate? And yes there is still not enough info available but compared to '95, '96 & '97, we...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Pat Nabors got almost all the salt Creek imported with that 90's shipment, he says they are the exact same frog as he got part of this batch as well and comparing them next to each other, the exact same frog 100%. For those that say this could be something different have you actually seen any? Rich ...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Yes but Phil you infer these are best guess imports to which I would say that is worng. Just to take Salt Creek, that is what was requested, the exporter claimed to go to Salt Creek and collect and then they sent a bunch of frogs that are phenotypical exactly what we expect are Salt Creek, which are...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Finding an exact duplicate of a requested moprh is likely more difficult than going to collect that morph if you know where it exists. I would say the morph JP has a pic of has many distinct differences from Escudo, granulated, body size etc. There will always be a few variable frogs in each populat...

Re: Oophaga pumilio import and non site specific

Well unless someone discovered a morph of Pumilio that is dead on Salt Creek and a different locality, these are Salt Creek. Show me a cloned morph in another area and I will believe there is a chance they are something else. This morph is pretty unique and almost imposssible to confuse with anythin...

Florida/SE Meet -Saturday March 31

I am hosting a frog meet on Saturday March 31, it coincides with the Tropiflora Spring Event , which we will all travel over to (unless someone wants to stay behind and babysit my Neo Mastiff...she is a sweetheart). There are a few travelling down from Georgia for this so you may find a ride if that...

Re: Breeding for specific traits - Thoughts ?

I don't think anyone said their vivs are too small just that smaller frogs would be better accomodated in vivs that we keep, no matter what their size. There is a big difference between the 2 statements. My bad. To address this, no, smaller sized frogs will not be the answer to vivs not of optimal ...
