When they finally do become available Ray, the folks who handled them in the wild should get first dibs

They have proven difficult to breed in captivity from what I've heard.

LOL...just wishful thinking....

It was fun to hunt for them and they proved to be quite photogenic as you can tell by Ray's point and shoot shots....

haha yeah they are very photogenic, they are an amazing species.
since i've got my ameerega aff. hahneli, i'm really getting interested in this genus.
soon i'll be getting my bassleri sisa soon.
i find the ameerega hard to find in europe. the trivitatus, bassleri and pepperi are well offered but the smaller species like hahneli, pongoensis, cainarachi, parvula, macero etc are hard to find.

these frogs you described above are not easy to come by anywhere, from my understanding Parvula and Macero are not even near in the hobby, legally.

i know that they were available several years ago (trough illegal import) but they don't appear in the hobby anymore.
i just hope that there will be a legal import in the near future with some nice ameerega species. if the demand is large on some species don't they import then?

Eric those were such cool frogs to look at up close. So colorful and granulated - good luck with them.

Thanks Arman! And I'm jealous you got to see these up close. All of these oddball Ameerega spp. are really neat.

There are a few different populations of them along the Huallaga. I nearly killed myself diving into tree buttresses in dense forest while catching them. Have a video somewhere.

Hoping to one day have a substantial Ameerega collection.

I've only got 3 frogs and they are all about the same size. The eyeball test says 2.1 but I'm getting older and the eyeball test aged with me. No population label with them, yes they are from UE, they breed in such small numbers (so far) that they don't make the price lists.

Hopefully they will do well and more people can enjoy them.

thanks
Eric

Just heard the first official calls from mine--here's to hoping there is a female in there and that he's not just calling to another couple males.

You have to let us know if these breed! Awesome little frogs. The Ameerega genus needs to be more represented in the hobby!

As far as getting them legally imported, is it just a matter of finding out who can give the authoritative ok? Or is the country just trying to be sticklers about what leaves? Right now I'm trying to find out who I need to contact in Guadeloupe to get the proper exportation permits for some anoles and I'm finding it very difficult to figure out what department and who I need to contact. Now when I was in Puerto Rico I know they are sticklers about anything leaving even if it's really common. I was looking into bringing back some of the different types of coquis. I know ameerega aren't by any means common which makes it more understandable the country possibly wants to know whoever gets them can care for them properly. I'm trying to find out how to export species myself as opposed to waiting if they possibly come about. Any help would greatly be appreciated

They've already been legally imported. A few people are already working with them.

Suprised.....these have been in the country almost 2 years, I know of at least 2 people having groups (if not a few more) and have literally seen nothing on those peoples experience with these. Hopefully they're documenting successes and failures when/if these get released a little more
