Default Banded Intermedius

I have never seen any of these for sale. Are they that uncommon.

Yes,

Do you have true banded intermedius?

I ask for a reason, as some stripped variants intermedius of the Tartlon line have been mislabeled.

Very nice animal indeed.

I will say however that IMO that is not a true banded intermedius. there is only one person in the US that I am aware of with the true banded intermedius. Perhaps I am wrong, and it doesnt take away from the beauty of your pair, or its value. But the pricing on the true bandeds vs the stripped tarlton line is significantly different.

For instance the frog below is NOT...it is mine...but not BANDED.




this frog however is.



notice the banding is circumferential not linear/vertical, much like a yellow fant.


Oz has a better pic.....OZ!

Here's a link to Phil Tan's pics. The banded are at the bottom of the page.

CRB -

That is a really nice looking Intermedius. However, I have to agree with Shawn that it is most likely a striped variant of the standard intermedius.

Here is a pic of one of Phil's true Banded Intermedius.


As you can see - the Banded term is quite descriptive.

I know there are not many working with these besides Phil - and don't know if anyone else is producing them.

How embarracing. LOL I was just going by what was in the Imitator Care Sheet. If you look at that it is a ventrical line that is listed under banded. I didn't know it was a horizantal band. Oh well LOL. I got my pair labled as a banded pair but i got it for free so i guess i can't be to disappointed. LOL.

You know that is a great looking pair anyways, and they are my favorite thumb, so I wish you all the best with them!! I'd call them standard though if you breed them.

Here are some more examples of standard intermedius, stripped variants NOT bandeds from my collection just as an illustration of how easy it might be to get them confused. Once you see a true banded though you will notice the clear differences.

Can you get in touch with the person that you got your frogs from? If so, find out about the lineage. But I think it is most likely that they are just a variant of standard intermedius. That however - does not detract from the beauty of the frogs.

My only concern is the line breeding of these striped variants solely to other striped frogs to perpetuate the phenotype. I think that they should be bred at random with other intermedius (regardless of the pattern).

Oz and Kyle

The care sheet needs to be corrected, and use Oz's picture of the banded and label the other as a stripped variant of the standard Tarlton line, please.

crb

it was an accidental misprint on the original care sheet. I'm certain it will be updated before you can blink :-)

take care, and best to you

Shawn
