Very cool.

As a sidenote, this is the one tree frog I'm particularly keen on getting. Anyone have any contacts?

I believe they are CITES II and are not easily accessible.

Hey Julio,

Thanks for posting these photos. They were awesome in person, not just see-through, but almost part of the leaf. I know my nephews would LOVE these frogs!

Take care, Richard.

if that is Hyalinobatrachium valerioi they are listed as spcies of least concern by IUCN
however it looks as though three of the four countries it inhabits are those which i do not believe allow legal export, and the fourth (in a national reserve) is on a declining trend, so they may be hard to acquire
IUCN Red List (version 2009.1) - Hyalinobatrachium valerioi

These guys are not easy to come by and are not a beginner species.

I think glass frogs of the family Centrolenaide(?) are just the most stunning animals. It would be a dream to work with them in a captive environment one day, but alas I think I will only get to see them in pictures. But still gotta love them.

Did you get to see them in person? Were they feeding? I want to see a picture or a video of them eating and digesting the food, I know the internal organs aren't transparent, but just to watch things move around, would be cool.

Black jungles obtained them through the Atlanta botanical Garden. Besides being hard to come by I don't think bj would be able to sell the young. at the naac conferecne there was a speaker who worked with these frogs but only in there native contries, like it was mentioned earlier the counrty they are from do not allow exportation and I beleive the abg is working with this person (can't remember his name) on conservation and study of these amazing frogs. also like Julio said they are hard to care for so if anyone where to get access of them I think it would only be those who have been in the hobby for a long time or those who are connected to such institutions as the abg. In reality we may see them in the hobby at some point but it may be a few years.

Was it Brian Kubicki? He seems to be the man, when it comes to glass frog research. I still wish I had the Reptiles magazine that had his article in it. That was an awesome article and had some gorgeous pics. I think its Centrolene ilex(?) that had the funky looking eyes. very alien, very COOL!

Depends on what you mean by "in the trade." They're pretty hard frogs to get a hold of, but there are a few select breeders out there who are trying their luck with these guys. So technically I guess they could already be considered to be in the trade.... Just not readily available.

Post Scriptum: I'm not one of these few select breeders, just FYI

There are a lot of frogs that are given the common name of "glass frogs" ( see these genera for some examples ). The ones in the photo are Hyalinobatrachium valerioi.
