Oophaga pumilio punta lauren discussion

Postby TonyI25 » Mon Sep 30, 2013 5:40 pm

I was searching online for different species and found this kind. Was wondering if anyone has owned these before and/or if anyone is selling any? They are beautiful and love the colors they have.

There are people selling them i just recieved my 1.1 last week. Beautiful frog! There was an import this year from Stricktly Reptiles that had some nice frogs. They are "South canal popa". Punta laurent was the collector that they were named after. Just more confusion to add to the barrel.

So the morph is South canal popa? Frogs do you have any pics of your 2? I really want a pair. How much did you pay for them if you don't mind me asking.

They sell for around $200 each give or take.This is the only photo i have at the time the other frog has fewer dorsal spots.

Look amazing, It seems their leg color varies. Some other pics I've seen, their legs are a bright baby blue. Does anyone know is that the case?

The question is, to use your words "regardless of where they cane from" is the glut of WC for sale in the hobby and what the consequence is to the population in the wild. Yep gorgeous frogs, all pdfs are gorgeous to me, just can't help but wonder what all this collecting is doing to the populations in the wild. Oops you're a "snake gal" so maybe irrelevant, yall mix and match.

Weren't all the types of frogs out in the hobby field wild caught at one point? It has to start somewhere. I think we are helping the population by them breeding in captivity. The animals don't have to worry about deforestation, predators, any kind of threat besides hobbyist not taking adequate care of the animal.

Yeppers! I sure am a snake gal, and after my husband bought some blue monitors..I am a lizard gal and now a frog gal too!

Is the population taking a hit with these imports? Maybe...maybe not. Who knows. Unless youre willing to move to panama to conduct an extensive research on their population and return here and prove to us indeed theyre taking a great hit, Id suggest you let those of us who are happy with what we have and have the privilage to work with and let us enjoy them!

If you truly are concerned with the well being of our planet, how about you pack up and fly over to syria to help some unfortunate whom have been harmed horribly and just let this"hobby" be what it is to many of us who work,raise kids and deal with everyday stress/life...a hobby!

...making quick note of 'locale' named after some guy.
Check.
Nice frogs.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.
