Default highland bronze auratus

I went in with another board member to pick up 8 of these guys. So far they seem more active then any auratus I've ever worked with. Hope it stays that way. They are just in quarantine enclosures so there's not much to look at other than the frogs. They've been chowing down on springtails all morning so I grabbed a few shots.

No, they're about 4 month ootw. I've always liked auratus since they were the first darts I ever kept back in my teens. Been a while since I had auratus....a really long while. Boy I'm getting old.

Keep note as to how their colors develop as they mature...it can be pretty variable.

Hi all. I am a major lurker, but had to reply to this one. Jub and I went in on these, and I can't wait to get my 4.. Since he knows TONS more about their care, he is being kind enough to watch them for a week or 3 to make sure all is well. I can't wait to get them, and have the viv almost ready (an exo 24x18x24.

Back to lurk mode....

If you have the chance, might be worth taking pics of each frog at 3 month intervals as they mature. As Ron said, the color change can be pretty variable. It'd be neat to visually be able to see how much.

That's a good idea. I usually take a lot of pics of the frogs anyways so I'm sure that I'll be able to document them. There are a few of them that you can just make out a hint of silvery color to their heads. At this point though it doesn't show up on the camera.

They came from Sean Stewart. They came in on Friday the 19th. He will be sending me more lineage details in an email soon.

Look good Tim.
Hmmmm didnt think you were that interested in auratus (guess I gave you the bug). I still like my b/b better.

Finally, I am seeing mine more and more every day.(I have 4- 5mo. old and 3 - 4mo old) I think they are starting to beg flies, since I have been feeding the bean beetles they are more active.

Believe it or not mine are really climbing.

I believe it. 1 of my 4 green/bronze is a little monkey. He/she regularly sits in the broms at the top of my tank (around 25" high).

Nice looking frogs you go there.

There is only one "line" of this morph in the states. Unless SNDF participated in their own importation of them from Europe, Sean is the only one who has brought any into the states...so, as far as I know, all auratus of this morph originate with his group, and can/should be bred with any other auratus of this morph currently in the states in order to encourage maximum genetic diversity and variability within the morph.

I don't know that I've seen them bring any in. They did have some interesting looking bronze auratus on their last classified add in the forums though. You don't really see many of these guys around.
