Default Odd Looking San Lorenzo Sylvaticus

So most of the San Lorenzo's I have seen (pictures mind you) are pretty solid orange, with a small amount of brown reticulation on the body. I received 3 from one of our friends in the northeast about 3 months ago which puts this guy at about 5 months old, the other 2 are typical mostly orange very nice looking frogs. Anyone else see this type of variability in their San Lorenzo's?

Is this guy odd looking for the morph or have those with more experience with this frog see this type of variability within their animals?

I had a calling male that was like this. I know a few others have heavily spotted ones like this as well. I'll let them out themselves though.

I have only seen one other with spots. It looks like a small alto tambo. It also came out of the Northeast. All others have been the red or orange with hash marks all through. It will be interesting to see what kind of offspring it produces. They are pretty unique though. I have seen probably more San Lorenzos than any other Sylvatica and only two look look like that, so a pretty rare trait I would say.

Interesting.... I haven't seen many San Lorenzos, but I really like that look.

Not to hijack the thread, but how did you get your hand so close for the photo? I've been trying to get a shot of my brown escudo, but they don't want me even looking at them let alone holding the leaf they are on.

Thanks guys, even that spotted one has the yellow/orange solid color on the legs which my other 2 have as well, a trait my young guy has yet to develop. Oh well until full grown you never know how these guys might change so 3 or 4 months from now, god willing I will update. And as for getting that close to the frog, these guys are pretty bold, not so bold that I can do that regularly but on a good day and focusing within 5 seconds I can get a picture that does not fall into the "what is that fuzzy blob in the picture" category.

some have spots that are more prominent then others, but if you look closely you will see they all have the spotted pattern on them, just gotta look closer.
