Awesome Pumilio Picture

Postby wohlerswi » Mon Jul 23, 2012 8:29 pm

I ran across this pic today when I was surfing and I just had to share it. I did not take this picture, credit most certainly goes out to National Geographic.

What do you guys think? I am wondering how they arranged this photo as by sight it appears to be some pumilio from pretty far away from each other. Any thoughts? One thought I had was the blue bastimentos has got to be the nicest blue bastimentos Ive ever seen.

I can tell you how I found it. I tried to get the URL but am having trouble from my phone. This was one of many many amazing pumilio pics they have. Anyway go to www.nationalgeographicstock.com and on the right hand side where it says QuickExplore, type in the word pumilio. Be prepared to drool bro I think I spent almost 2 hours looking at the pictures lol.

I think that looks like a 'blue' Basti, above....

Those animals are captive stock from different locales. The blue is a "cauchero".

The bottom '6 o'clock' pumilio is from Bastimentos, I believe.

Phil, just curious, what indicator on that frog led you to think it was a Basti locale? If I hadn't seen your post, Colon would have been my first thought.

just seeing so many Bastis over the years. There HAVE been a couple times people think they are green or blue 'Colons' but I dunno.....overall hard to say for sure as we all know the pumilio 'sitch and how we can't really go by this or that....

I see. I saw the greenish body coupled with the yellow-brown legs, and I'd never seen a Basti with such a color difference. You've been at it a lot longer than I have, though, and as you say who really knows...cool looking frog either way.

The spots - size and location are a little more telling than the overall colouration and 'stocking's colours...IMO
