Default Cruziohyla craspedopus

Within this coverage of NARBC Tinley from last weekend I spoke with a breeder the Amazon Leaf frog. These things are wicked. If you haven't seen them or heard of them, check out the link. There are picks, and discussion.

Enjoy,

PS In our next issue of Herp Nation Magazine there is a feature article about mimic poison dart frogs. Might be something you all would be interested in.

ABG has these, they are probably my favorite tree frog(excluding glass frogs). They are beautiful and they have a really strong feeding response. Is this breeder you met planning on selling them? I know of one breeder and I rumor has it they will sell them for something like $1800 a frog...

In order to sell these, they are going to have to drop that price, a lot. Supply and demand will teach a few people.

It was my understanding that they weren't really breeding them to sell but they would sell a few if you want them badly enough (aka if you are willing to drop serious cash)

His name is Mike Novy and he's a legend. He's the preeminent breeder of monkey frogs. You can see him briefly interviewed here (long awesome 80's hair) and the aforementioned frogs (both craspedopus and calcarifier I believe):

Supply and Demand don't count when you are the only one with the item every one wants. And I am sure my Friend Mike is only selling at the price he paid.

I didn't know Mike Novy was working with them. Did he import them himself? I found a south american exporter that has had them in the past but they seemed really shady, as do most of the exporters I have found.

His were captive bred , you would have to ask him further questions , as it deals with him personally, I don't know anything further.

Mike is the man!, I havent been to his place in a couple years, last time i was there, he had just got the calcarifer, and hadn't started breeding them great to see he's doing big things with them! Way to go Novy!

good god I wish that was all I paid for them!
I don t regret tho. I figure, busting my hump every day , people said I will never own it and the fact that I have been infatuated with that species for over 20 years, its is an honor to finally to work with them. Definately a learning experience and will be writing an article on keeping and breeding this frog. This way everyone can have the same experience I finally had if they own it. A. Spinosa is next with any luck ( that is if I have any females). I m out currently of sizable craspys but should have a couple available In a month. Best to call for reserving any216 965 2856. Thanks again everyone for the support and frog on!

The last two times I talked to you at Hamburg you had talked about finally acquiring your 'dream frog' and I kinda assumed this was it, great news man. Also very cool also about Anotheca spinosa, I've worked with them before and they are incredible. Very personable with very cool reproductive behaviors, and fairly easy to breed.

I used to keep and breed Anotheca spinosa in converted shower stalls. Unfortunately, they loved and remained in their cork bark holes for most of the time. It would be great to see these in the hobby! Best of luck!!
