Default E. Tricolor rio juntas

I was wondering if this morph is being kept in the states. i found these by doing some research on different anthonyi and tricolor morphs.
I was amazed by it's colours.
I found the pictures on a german site:

I know only know one person who's got some in belgium and he's got only males. so it's waiting till he can gets ome hold on some females.
I'm going to find some in germany i should have some more luck finding them over there.
Also i contacted wikiri for some information if they are going to work with some morphs to get imported. they told me that they are going to put up some breeding projects with some different morphs so it's just patience i
guess.
maybe i got to push those guys from wikiri some more in the direction of these rio juntas haha so we get them sooner.

I would love to see more tricolors but it seems like the old lines are already disappearing once again. I remember a push to get them going again around 2006 and they were all the rage, and now they're back to the back burner.

In this issue of DN Magazine there was an article published about some populations/morphs of E. tricolor in the wild. The author was fairly specific about where he found them and which variations could be found in various parts of the drainages he frequented. From what I understand, within 3 months of the article being published, many of the forms of tricolor mentioned in the article suddenly started showing up for sale in Europe.

The author felt horrible about being so specific (unknowingly leading people straight to the locations)...and in the subsequent 2 articles he wrote in the series, was MUCH more vague in his mentioning of where specific forms could be found.

I was referring to anthonyi morphs and e. tricolors but a quick look at herpetologic.net seems to show he has most of them available. I remember Sean Stewart being a hold out for them before, and it seems to be holding true.

I haven't seen many classified adds for them however? Is it still the case of little brown frog? And anybody that wants them just searches them out instead of grabbing them when they pop up in an add? I would imagine is gets disheartening listing them or bringing them to shows and having little interest. I was basing my opinion on lack of classifieds, but I think I'm wrong on their popularity or population left in the hobby.

You haven't been paying attention then.

I can think of only one tricolor species that has fallen off the radar over the last ten years - and I only knew one person who was working with it.

Everything else has been fairly well represented - I see ads for Anthonyi and Tricolor now and again. I'll be working with another "little brown frog" soon (A hahneli - in additon to E tricolor moraspunga and rio saladillo (sp?) that I already work with).

They're around.

Isn't there a better way to phrase this?

Although, you are correct, I haven't been paying attention. This is my first time back in the hobby after 6 years. I was just making an observation based on old information, no need to get snippy.

When I left they were the "it" frog, I thought they would still be widely available. Not sporadically. Think auratus level of availability and popularity. Where they are now is not well represented.

It is what it is. I wasn't rude - I was just succinct.

Giron Valley is the one I was trying to think of (that "we" had and no longer seem to have).

I've been around 20 years so I've seen the ebb/flow pattern cycle now a few times. I know exactly what you mean.

For some of us, little brown frogs never left the FRONT burner. With a fairly high level of fecundity, it can be easy to somewhat flood the market with these species (and, because of their relatively high rate of fecundity, there seems to be an inverse perception of the 'prestige' in keeping them). This makes them easy to fall through the proverbial cracks.

I think it best for those who produce them to not saturate the hobby with them, but try to release them in small (and perhaps continual) numbers...then pull back on breeding, then make some available again, etc. This might help prevent the boom/bust cycle that seems to really afflict E. anthonyi and tricolor.
