Default Finding BJ pumilio...

I have wondered this for quite some time. As much as it is a "poster frog" (calenders, toys, books, etc.) where are they all in captivity? :?:

I believe I've talked to a number of folks that say they are horrible breeders. I have never raised thumbnails or egg feeders, and am not familiar with the breeding process, other than the fact that pumilio will rear their young.

Other than the other larger tinc group frogs and phyllobates, pumilio would be the frog I'd most likely be interested in...some day. But the blue jeans has been my inspiration ever since!

There arent many left in the hobby. So not alot of people are working with them. So many of the imports years ago died off and very few frogs were left over.But I think the real issue is that they are very difficult to breed and hadnt had the chance to become establised in the hobby even in small #s. Still I would still think there would be more blue jeans floating around then I have heard of. I know that Black Jungle has them and I think Brent has them also. If he is the one im thinking of he put ALOT! of time into them trying to figure out what makes them tick. There was a big thread about some of it.



Later man

Without sounding like an elitist on this... that's a species I leave for the experts (of which I am in no way/shape/form). Kind of like Histrionicus.

If there's every any hope of having them become more common in the hobby - my opinion is that they are best left with people with way more experience than myself.

You could always consider Man Creek - it isn't Blue Jeans - but it's a reasonable fascimile.

No way. I doubt I would take them for free even.

Actually - I probably would and then work on moving them to someone I trust to work with them.

I used to breed a pair at the labs....man I miss those days. Anyway, even NAIB had a few pairs and now they are down to one (due to chytrid)....and they keep them on exhibit! I have had much better success in breeding them some bastimentos...lol.

Best,

Justin
