Default Pics of one of my new D. Ventrimaculatus 'Iquitos' froglets

Got 4 of these froglets from Black Jungle at the White Plains show on 1/6/07. I flew up from North Carolina, spent 3 hours at the show, and flew back that afternoon. Frogs traveled just fine in a small backpack that went through security without questions (whew!). Mike and Richard are certainly a great asset for this hobby.

I ordered three of those frogs from Black Jungle, and I hope they look that nice when I get them!

I am sure they will. I looked through what they had and they all looked so good I just shrugged and picked four containers at random! Be warned that they are truely little rockets - when you open their container they may fly out at incredible speed. Scared me to death!

Ok I have cleaned up the naming discussion and moved it to the science section.

Great frogs!

Can't you just take the frogs in a small container on the airplane generally without a question. I know that I have brought toads back with me in plain view for all to see without having to go through the radiation box. Just curious if that's still ok?

With the current state of airport security, I did not want to attempt to circumvent the xray machine. Highlighting the fact that you want to carry on something unusual could very well keep them from getting through. I got to the airport about 2 hours before my flight so that if I had any problems with security I could still return to the show and ask the vendor to ship them for me when they could. I don't think they look like much on the x-ray machine so they are not scrutinized further. FYI -
I was carrying 5 deli cups with a total of 11 frogs on the way up, 4 deli cups with 4 frogs on the way back. All in my backpack with some miscellaneous food, books, gps, satellite radio, etc. both as additional clutter for them to see as well as because I wanted them along. It certainly was a bit nerve wracking but I would probably do it again as long as security does not get any tighter and I have a plan B for shipping them.

I too purchased 4 of these beauties.
I was disappointed today when I looked in the tank to admire two that were walking on the glass and noticed one had a funky front leg, it looked like it was broken because when the frog walked across the glass it was underneath its belly.
And when I looked further it was definitely deformed.
I'm very bummed what do you think I should do?
