Default Terribilis or bicolor?

So for my birthday today my wife arranged to pick me up a orange terribilis from a local breeder. The frog is beautiful, and active, but I'm unsure as to wether it's a p. Terribilis or a p. Bicolor. The breeder swears to me it's a black foot orange terribilis, and after looking at pictures I can see a little bit of a resemblance but I figured I would ask the experts on her to be sure. Thanks in advance.

Unsure why, but I'm only able to upload one pic at a time, so here's a side view.

Did he say where it came from? The black feet just came in. It does look similar to my yellow black feet.

No, unfortunately he did not. I've had only enough contact with him to be told it was a black foot orange

Did you pay $30-50 a frog or did you pay $150 per frog?

It looks young. Did the seller tell you an age of the frogs? It could just be a young orange or yellow terribilis, as they look dull when they first morph and gain their color as they age.

That kinda looks like a bicolor or young terribilis.

Did not give an age, as I said my wife picked it up for me, so my contact with him has been minimal. He's refused to answer most of my questions and emails. It is just abit larger than a dime

Definitely would not have full adult coloration then. He has a lot of growing ahead. The seller is probably the only person who can give insight here, at least until the frog matures…

FroggyKnight says it well. The frog is too young to determine if it is terribilis blackfeet. By the time you have to trust the seller, if he has a good reputation. It is better to wait before you get him a mate.

He has a lot more black on his back legs than yours do, and a slight bit of a black stripe going through the eyes. And the black on his legs is more broken up, if that makes any sense. What bothers me as to trusting the seller, is originally he said it was an orange, the. When I questioned the coloration, it became a Blackfoot orange. Now I've not heard back from him

Finally got a response from the seller, it was obtained from someone in Indiana that was selling his entire collection. This guy bought the collection from him

Unfortunately he said he can't give me the name or contact info for the guy he got it from.

I think it is an juv. Orange. They grow into their color. My black feet are the ones that were just brought in by UE. They came in older and with full color minus the black sock look. I don't think the timeline would add up to be black foot bred here and not for $60.

Works for me as an orange was what I was wanting. I didn't believe it to be a Blackfoot, but it does have a strong resemblance to the bicolor, hence my asking. Thanks

I think they look similar until they get older.
