Default Frogs near Seattle

Does anyone here sell frogs, mainly interested in thumbnails? I am near Seattle but also travel to Portland frequently.

I believe @OSU (still not sure how to tag people here) had some vanzos and varadero imitators for sale a while back, and I think he's in Oregon. Might check. There's also a local breeder near Tacoma someplace, "Rainforest Poison Dart Frogs and Exotics," but I think their stock is pretty limited and don't recall thumbnails. The local herp shows I've been to have not had much in the way of actual breeders.

I'm also in the area and might be able to help you out down the line, but not anytime soon. I have two pairs of R. imitators that I'm setting up for breeding but I'm not planning to be particularly aggressive about it (gonna see how they do raising the tads). So I'm probably a year or two away from having any juveniles I'd want to sell.

Also, not sure if you're new to frog keeping or not, but if you are you might consider starting with something other than thumbnails. They're usually not considered ideal for beginners. If you are just starting, be sure to make good use of the information on these forums. Frog keeping is a wonderful hobby, and doesn't take a lot of "maintenance" in my opinion, but there's a lot of stuff to plan and consider in the beginning. Research is your friend!

All good advice so far.

I'd add that acquiring the proper species is more important than keeping it local. The cost of shipping is low, in the grand scheme of things.

As said about rainforest dart frogs is probably your only local "breeder." he does have a handful of thumbnail ranitomeya species.

With that being said you shouldn't limit yourself to local sales if you are looking for a less common frog.

There's a facebook group called The Pacific Northwest Vivarium society you might find helpful. It's where most of us local froggers chat and plan get togethers.
