Default at one point were D.lehmanni popular in the hobby

or have they always just been uber rare frogs. If so why are they really that diffucult to raise and breed is it because there such a large egg feeder? ive never seen one for sale or was it at one point that a huge number of imports came in and then popularity for them died?

I do not believe they have ever been around in larger numbers.

All the egg feeders have never reached a good sized population in the hobby. The only reason so many pumilio are around at this point is due to exportations from Panama. Non-FR pumilio still, and have always had, extensive wait lists for froglets, with only a few prodocing consistantly.

None of the other eggfeeders in the hobby have bred in any significant numbers. The few that did breed and successfully raised froglets (only a few a year - you get more out of tincs in one clutch) had problems with the froglets dying at or before 6 months of age.

No there were never very many around and they were always a bit on the expensive side.

Best,

I don't think they'll ever be easily obtainable. Zoos produce a few but are never released to the average public.

snip "Zoos produce a few but are never released to the average public."endsnip

What Zoos? I checked the ISIS registry and there are no lehmanni listed as being in any Zoos...
Now if they are being kept as a colony, its possible but still what Zoos??
