I am just asking because I don't know.

Are these the same as standard lamasi ?

Rich,first up the obvious thanks and congratulations,stunning pics as always and I don't think this particular frog morphing out is one I have seen before.

Rich we are very interested in keeping these,can you give us any information please,while I say these,but there seem to be two highland lamasi out there divorsia(huanaco sp?) and tingo maria are these pictures divorsia Rich,your nomenclature might be totally different to ours,if so I'll try and be clearer
Could you give us parameters for temp,that you keep yours at please,i'm curious as to how much cooler you keep them than your other frogs...if at all ?

How much time do they spend on the ground as opposed to off the ground?

If this is a derailment you don't want here,then just take the thanks,but we have both long loved these frogs and see so few folks breeding I had to ask

much thanks

Stu

Thanks Stu and everyone.
As far as I know there is only one standard/highland locale . I have read a report of classification of one other lamasi locale that was not yet called panguana by some, but it had green coloration , not the typical metallic gold of the standards. I could be wrong, but I thought I had kept up on this population, as it is almost gone in the wild.
I have always kept them in vivs similar in construction and temps etc., as most other thumbs and never really tried to keep them much cooler than the average thumb viv.
The utilized most all of the vivs and are pretty active.
Some say they are skittish, but if you get them used to seeing you and interacting a bit with you as young they turn out pretty bold.
Over-all there are not too many 'tricks' to them. They just don't produce as well as any other 'established' thumbs we have here that I know of. And they are going extinct in the wild.

Ha ha how to entice a frogkeeper into keeping a particular morph,show him some pics by Rich,ahh thanks for those as well as the answers. A repeat of a missed question Rich: how much time do they spend on the ground as opposed to up a bit. My reason for asking and being persistent is simply I will only have 40cm highvivs available 50sq on the base,i'm pondering if they will have enough height? Being cheeky you don't have a viv FTS do you?

Really appreciate the time and the pictures,stella as always
thanks

Stu

I think the "other" highland population Stu was referring to are the UE Green lamasi (sirensis), which are a totally different morph and much more common/easy to breed. The greens are similar to these in that both are larger locales than the various Panguana types.

Those were the ones I was referring to. Yes, absolutely different in many aspects. Christman also refers to those "green lamasi " as panguana in his book series.
