Perhaps a new thread and trying not to derail but packaging a frog for shipment even for export should not create the look some WC have when imported. I don't think most of these frogs look this way due to being caught and held, most imports don't look to have fresh scrapes but it seems more a function of growing up in the wild and the tribulations there in.
Maybe some of these frogs have a scratched pattern as part of their variability, but in the case of Armson's frog, would that frog always produce a solid red backed frog or could there be black inclusions in the red color pattern, those that are not the black/blue spotting we see in some "strawberry darts". I think a round of photos of offspring from these imports would tell us a lot, hopefully we will see a decent sampling of babies out of these guys and the other CR imports over the next few months by which we can at least make some assumptions. As long as adult frogs that have a scratched up look are imported, many will look at them with a certain opinion.
