Re: Whats the deal with this hobby?
is the hobby growing?
Yes, in fact it's the biggest growth I've seen in 10 years or more. We were flatlined for many many years. The US Economy!!
do people get out after a year or 2 - definitely. I'd say 80% get out after a couple years. This is an attractive exotic hobby but it's more work than anyone see's coming.
Novice keepers killing frogs - sure. stands to reason.
Auratus are the goldfish of the frog hobby. Sometimes you can't give them away (MOST morphs)
Ask yourself....were those frogs really easy to breed? If yes, than that tells you their worth. Easy to breed = cheap and flooded market.
Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a bannana
