Default Anyone still working with Abiseo?

Just wondering if anyone is still working with Abiseo? There doesn't seem to be much talk of them in recent history and the last I read about them was there was difficulty breeding them. Has anyone had any luck on that front?

I unfortunately don’t have Abiseo, but I am working with Yellow/Gold Pepperi. I have a group of five with almost 20 froglets, 8 of which are 9 months old. They are spectacular frogs with the best call I have heard. I looked for Abiseo for almost two years and only came across a few people that even had them, let alone any available for sale. I am also in Canada which made things even harder.
Hopefully we can see Pepperi making a comeback.

My wife recently contacted a few european breeders who succesfully bred Ameerega sp. in the past, in hope to get the number of Ameerega ex situ back up. She found 2 good breeders that imediatly wanted to help breed sissa and pepperi in large numbers. Fingers crossed!

I am working with them. Thanks for posting this, Nonsequiteur. It finally got me to get off my duff and post a thread on my experience with these great frogs. I didn't want to derail your thread so I made a new thread:

I have three bassleri, 1 male and 2 presumed females, and after looking for pepperi and silverstonei, I saw some older pics of Abiseo and was curious about what happened to these in the hobby. My bassleri are gorgeous, but so incredibly shy, my male nearly never calls audibly and the only time they are actually out roaming the viv is right after the lights go out. Only one female ever comes out when there is food, but all three look healthy when I do see them at night. I would love to get some Abiseo some day, but for now having the experienced breeders get them and use their experience to build their numbers back up in the hobby would be better for us all. Mark, thanks for the write up, it was really informative.
