Very interesting. No scientific name given, didn't find anything on a google search...though I assume a Boophis species. Does anyone know about these?

They look like they might be a species of heterixalus

I'm going to say probably some sort of Mantidactylus sp., or maybe Platypelis. JVK

But of course! As if I ever heard of these guys before

QUESTION: Why do the ad sites (King Snake, Fauna) not require Latin names? (Or at least say, "Sorry, Latin unknown.") Why do we need to see "Green tree lizard" or "Brown tree climber" or "Chirping tree frog" or "Ornate swift" or some other less than useless names?!?

Hey--let's make some up:

Asian water frog
Chinese insect-eating toad
Caribbean anole
South American tree lizard
Fanged viper
Carnivorous cave snake
African shelled turtle

I mean, geezus...

I saw these at the last White Plains show. They were very cool and superficially looked very healthy. Kind of regretting not getting them.
