Default Cristobal Variability?

I recently aquired a few Cristobal Pumilio in trade. 2 juvies and 2 adults. All are from 2010 SNDF WC parents. The two youngest are the typical red with spotting and blue feet. The 2 adults are much different. Apparently out of a clutch of 4 eggs, 2 came out normal, and 2 turned out like this. He kept them as holdbacks for awhile till deciding to trade them to me. The individual's been a member for years, and I have no reason to doubt him. I know Cristo's can be fairly variable as I've seen them with reduced spotting, heavy spotting, orange, red and yellow, grey to blue feet. These guys have blue-ish feet, spotting, but they are more of a green/gold color, I'd almost compare to shepard island. Has anyone seen Cristo's throw offspring like this before?

yup, part of the problem is diet, which effects color in captivity.

I have some of the 2010 cristos that are currently careing for tads. I dont know if the green gold is common for them, but I sure hope it is after seeing yours.

Chris, at some point in the past SNDF was importing yellow Cristobals. For a while, they had them listed on their site...I'm not sure if they still are. I have no idea if they are a natural part of the variation or a separate locale, but yours remind me of them.

I have a yellow cristo, but with more spotting. It varies from a dark muddy yellow to the color of yours. Here is a pic, but it is a little blurry.

I've been getting eggs, but they keep getting eaten. So I took a few eggs and reared them in petri dishes until they hatched and manually put them into the broms. We'll see if anyone feeds them or not. Didn't have anything to lose by trying it.

With the hand spray I pushed a Cristos tadpole in the chalice of a neo; he was alone and isolated. The tadpole was pushed by the water and slipped in bromeliads. But I doubt that female feed him!

The only Cristobals I`d seen for sale were the same as mine (see photo).
Until recently someone I know decided to sell a single one he had which I`d never seen before.
It is also green like the ones posted by PdfCrazy.
