i think its not a mix because it came with other 5 that clearly look like cristo's but on the left leg you can see the classic cristobal leg pattern

Cristobals can vary significantly. I have seen them range from orange to almost red. If they others were sold with this one then it has to be a cristobal.

We can't question every frog we come across just because of slight polymorphic differences. I have had azureus morph almost green to adulthood.

who did you buy the frog from? if its a reputable breeder then i would trust what they say? if not then ask to see a pic of the parents, that will give you a better idea as to what it is.
With that said, i have seen cristobal that look nothing like the normal cristo patterns and that goes for any local of frogs, not all have the usual typical pattern

Not having spotting is part of the variability. Mine have produced frogs with a ton of spots and some with out any at all. I have two froglets right now in the main cristobal tank that are spotless...

I was hoping that the case would be that there are cristos that are yellow. Awesome frog, my female is light orange. I'd love to have a yellow one.

I remember seeing yellowish ones on the SNDF website some time ago. They may still be up.

I have a male cristo with no spots.I wouldn't question it if it was from a reputable breeder.Besides,Blue jeans cost a lot more money so I doubt it would be one of them.

KGB just sold a sweet pair of yellow cristos recently.
