So we have people on DB 'gettin' all scared' and stuff regarding these.

Simonphelps is afraid to say who, but he alludes to not getting his frogs for over two months now.

Is this a 'Frog Whisperer' transaction ? That would make all the hush hush and scared people stuff believable.

Man, just when you hope for 'better' things from that forum now that a lot of the mods left (or SHOULD have left), you are left with that B.S - fraidy cat hobbyists perpetuating bad practices - letting vendors off the hook and refusing to name names.

So is this why the big deal was made about these "best Blue Jeans" locales and then I never heard any more about them? I was curious as why they were such a big deal before they even got here, but now no one mentions them.

All CR blue jeans and black jeans are very similar IMO. Other than a TRUE locale GPS that you trust, I have no idea why one population would be any more desirable than another.

I like mine, and I know they are legal and real CR BJ's, so I have no need to get others. And mine are pretty damn spectacular lol.

Frye BJs were the first frogs I bought!

However I do have quite the unique problem. My Pair of Frye BJs has stopped eating fruit flies. They are both as fat as can be but the tank I transitioned them into has so much microfauna in it that they simple ignore the fruit flies.

I just like BJs (Really who doesn't? oh yeah, my wife)

So I bought these in addition to the Frye line frogs. I was going to get the euro line BJs that a bunch of people have but I don't have the room and I think my wife is now sick of me getting BJs

Just so things don't get out of hand (I got a text regarding this), Simon is waiting for the next shipment of Guapiles to come in next month (Nov). Might be why he is waiting, BTW. He originally ordered some other frogs, he got refunded for those, and wanted the Guapiles instead coming in on the next shipment.

I'm pretty darn certain of their locales. No strange deals being done on the side of the road of these. And since I'm the one who originally sent the exact GPS coordinates of the locales I wanted, well, I know what's going on.

People will demand photos of the facility. They'll demand photos of the individual tadpoles if you give them the chance. A while ago I decided I can't make certain people happy because they have an agenda, so I don't try anymore. The same people claimed I was smuggling them until they made a FOIA request and got the legal import paperwork from USFWS proving themselves wrong. Gossip away, it doesn't change the facts. It does make some people foolish, however.

Simply put, some are more red and more blue then others. The Guapiles are more vivid and clean looking then other Blue Jean locales.

But "tesoros de colombia did it" "live animals panama" did it even rich frye did it recently with the grannies, so why couldnt you simply post pictures of this operation where these from are bring captive bred? It really is that easy!
Im sure youre familiar with manaei and their biologists down there? I mean seeing how familiar youre with cr and the whole process with running commercial legal exports out of there?
