Default Colubre Pumilio

Here is a pair of my Colubre Pumilio right before going into QT, they are a little darker than they should be based on the stress of transport but all of mine arrived in great shape. My other pair already looks much brighter after settling in as will these guys soon (they had to wait a day as I set up another bin).

These new pums are stunning! I would like to know if you've taken Loma Colubre and Valle del Rey too. When you can, post new pics: there are so few pictures and infos about them. Thanks

Awsome Mark, you never let us down with your frog post. They look like the pumilio gods took the best of uyama and cauchero and put it all in one frog.

This looks so nice, it almost looks like somebody photoshopped blue onto a basti. I know its a real picture, it just looks that amazing.
Are they an island morph or do they come from the mainland? I noticed there is a city called "Colobre" with an O instead of a U, pretty much smack in the middle of Panama. Is that where they are from?

The color is spot on and the nice thing is they are the size of Basti's, I was told they are from an Indian reservation and were collected with permission.

as someone that doesn't delve into the day to day politics of the frog market, do these people basically just operate as resellers, or do they usually just buy these animals and hold them back for breeding projects?

If it's the former, I'm surprised that SR hasn't adjusted their pricing accordingly, since they engage in retail sales, anyway. because this pretty much happens with every import, correct?

Oh no I'm Catholic....actually the great majority that buys these site specific frogs that have a higher price tag are hobbyists, sometimes there are too few to resell sometimes there are extras.....in this case there weren't enough, and everyone got extra males.

I figured if people were even just reselling them were hobbyists. I was just curious why they always seemed to sell out so quickly. i didn't realize they were extremely limited in the numbers that came in.

Look fantastic! Its great that Strictly has brought many previously unavailable/new locales into the hobby.i suppose the trade off is repeaded imports of lots of other wc locales already well established in the hobby.hopefully hobbyists will breed these and not flip them to newbies who are willing to pay top dollar but don't really know pumilio.

Thanks for the update and congrats on awesome frogs. I'm jealous...

Here are some pics of mine. They arrived in really good condition and have been putting on a good amount of weight (last pic taken today). I absolutely love these guys! Big, bold, blue pumilio....doesn't get much better.

Wow, I was figuring "limited" meant somewhere between 100-200 individuals. How well do these small imports do long term, especially for frogs that are limited in their production like Pumilio?

There actually were only 20 brought in from what I've been told. This population is supposed to be quite small, so hopefully we do well with what we currently have lessening the need to get more.

as just an observer from the forums, it doesn't seem repeated imports occur too often

It really depends. The common locales come in almost yearly, and you see some come in multiple times (Punta Laurents came in twice this year for the first time ever as an example).

Just when i think i've figured out all the pumilio that I want to keep, they import BLUE ones!
Good thing i've got a year until offspring will be available!

salt creeks have been in the hobby for years though, right? I'm talking about the region specific imports that are more recent and seemingly much more limited

Actually rio brancos were brought in a couple times several years ago. 09 I believe.

These are amazing looking. They look a lot like some vicentei pictures I've seen though.
