Default My Cayo nancy pair

I picked up an awesome pair of cayo nancys at this past frog day.I've been told that they are the same as solarte and was curious if this is true.if so why are they called by 2 different names.Is it a locale thing or are they 2 different frogs.I'm curious because if I remember correctly the same seller had solarte as well.

I've always been told they're the same frog. Taking a look at the geography, it seems "Cayo Nancy" and "Solarte" are names used interchangeably to describe the same island in the Bocas. The discrepancy may have resulted from the island being called one thing in EU and the other in the USA.

Yes exact same frogs, Nancy was the historic name used and then as more of the Spanish localities were used as identifiers Solarte was added. To me they will always be Cayo Nancy....orange frogs, white toes, classic. Always a very scarce frog until SNDF started to import, not until then did most of realize that this frog could have black spots.

I kind of like the name as Cayo Nancy too.I love the colors of this particular pair.1 is the color of baby aspirin,the other is a redder orange.They are very clean (no spots at all).I'll try and get some pics up,when they cooperate.

Among all my pums, Solarte (I refer to them as reported on the my papers) or Cayo Nancy have been and will always be my love. I can not imagine my collection without Solarte. Congratulations, you've made ​​a very nice purchase.

Again a much under rated frog and one of the few import frogs I missed out on as I had wanted a group for a big tank for a long time. I really like the solid orange with white toes and feet, I remember the first time I saw a pair at the Serpents Egg in Washington DC around 1997, they were in a custom made viv with a fogger that was mind blowing...but back then it was all about the blue frog. Good luck with them Lou, are yours unrelated or siblings?

Thanks,I'll have to find out if they are related,I'm not sure.You would probably like these then Mark.They are almost candy colors(for the lack of a better term),like I said earlier,to describe the one as childrens aspirin orange with white feet and the other the same type of color with more of a pink/reddish color with white feet.Both are solid super clean with no flecks of any other color.I'll try and get pics,but I don't dig frogs out to get them,so it may take a couple of days or so.I'm waiting on some build supplies to put them in their permanent digs.I really like these guys and agree they are probably a bit underrated .When I first laid eyes on them I had to have them and knew I was winning that auction no matter what.They are up there as one of my favorite pumilio.

Now I'll have to wait for you to get those blue beautys you have going to add some more unique pumilio to my collection.

I know terrible pics.I'll try and get better pics later or over the weekend.I got these after bribing them with a heavy misting and a plethora of springs.They knew I was up up to something and didn't want to have any part of it.The first(head shot) is of the redder one.The second and third is of the orange one eating springs in the leaf litter(oops maybe too many springs to lure them out).The orange one I believe is the male.It's smaller and thinner.The redder one is larger and a bit rounder.

Judy,the female for some reason,just doesn't like her pic taken.Any time I opened the tank to get a shot,she was gone.I caught them up to put them into their new digs today so I was able to get pics of both together.The first pic is with the flash on so you can see the color difference.The smaller yellower one is the calling male.

She's shy because she's got baby fat.She has to go on a tad diet.............. not eating them but making them.

I had 2 nancy one was spotted. I love the white feet. They are one of the few pumilio I considered getting again.

I also like bribri, del drago and I think eldorados are underrated they are nice with their large size and bold.

After not seeing her since putting her into her permanent viv on March 15th.I wasn't worried because she's the shy one.The male is out all the time.She came out last night and well,apparently she's been eating everything in sight.


The male was calling a little differently than usual and with a purpose.He climbed out of a brom calling away and she followed him around.Well the pics explain it all











He then called her in and out of other broms and cans.His calls were different,almost like he was calling loudly under water which is why I knew something was up.She followed him around like she was glued to him for quite some time.

Very very nice frogs! Congrats!
Last week I convinced my brother in law to buy a Solarte pair. Now - in our family - we have two pairs. Males are very bold, they always call.
No doubt Solarte are my favorite among all my pums.

Thanks,
I got them at the last Frogday and put them into their permanent viv on March 15th.When in the quarantine tank and until last night,I've rarely seen the female.I guess she's settling into her new home and happy to start a family,because she's been out and hanging in a brom all day. She looks like she's going to pop so I think she is ready to drop eggs if she hasn't already.

She could be feeding tads in the film canisters and broms. That was my first thought.

I was thinking that could be a possibility too.That's what I love about Pumilio.One day you see nothing,the next day you find froglets hopping around.It's that time of year.

This is the third or so clutch I've found since the last post


With a flash


If there's not tads or froglets about to pop,there should be soon enough.
