Sounds like the elusive Pinktorius Floydicus. That may be a tall order to fill. The closest thing to pink may be some of the Epipedobates tricolor, maybe the Zarayunga Morph This link is simply for a picture and is not feedback either way, for the website/seller. Herpetologic.net

Just as Pumilio had said, the Pinktorious Floydicus is a mesmerizing, hypnotic, and trippy kind of amphibian.

I believe it is a new species to the hobby. Recently discovered on the dark side of the moon

I've seen a lot of pictures of pinkish Dolphin Bay/Punta Clara pumilio, however I've only seen them available on European sites...

I see them all the time. NOT going to say HOW I see them, but I do. Even snapped a pic of one last night. They come out on special occasions and are often only seen by one individual at a time.

D. Pinktorius Floydicus

For the record I think it's only a morph and not it's own species, but what do I know. LOL.

At risk of starting a firestorm - this is the benefits of NOT keeping the lines pure. Not that one SHOULD but one COULD (theoretically).

Found another one. Even more rare - some people do identify this as a Pinktorius Floydicus - but there is confusion in the field. Since this represents a broader base - this name seems a bit more relevant.

Isn't that the Acid phase morph? I think that one is a line bred morph originated by Sid Barret. I've heard that the supplement required to keep the colors are hard to come by and highly illegal.

Isn't the supplement used for that colour called psilocybin?

Close, but not quite.... Think tri nitrated indole derivative. It's effective in much smaller doses and can be absorbed cutaneously

The reason that the Pinktorous Floydicus is so rare is that the supplement is generally given to the keeper, rather that the frog itself. Generally, soon after ingestion, the Floydicus sprouts wings and flies away.

It's also rare due to it's aging population, sadly.

ROTFLMAO

Poor Sid - he's been relegated to being blamed for psychedelic colored frogs.
