Picked this trio up this weekend at the BJ barbecue from JP. Look at those colors folks!!!! They are wicked bold, voracious eaters and are super photogenic.

The orange have been reclassified as pepperi (after Mark). If you PM your email I can send you the article in Zootaxa.

Yup, to clarify, both the UE EB-OHNS and EB-CHO populations of A. bassleri are now classified as A. pepperi.

Were those your frogs in the office? I was eyeballing some casteonoticus while checking out but couldn't see what was underneath... Congrats! They're stunning :).

Great pictures - much better than any I'd managed to take! Marina - one may have ended up in the office (sold a single to another New Englander) but AFAIK, stemcellular's didn't come in. You'll get to see more of the same if you make it down to the end of Aug get-together.

Thanks JP! I'm amazed how bold they are - unlike most of my other froglets they come out when I open their quarantine container (if they are not out and about already)... a lot like mantella aurantiaca, they seem to be fearless!

Btw, I'm really psyched I nabbed the yellowish one. He/she is spectacular.

mine are also bold, but not fearless, however thats good to hear you see them often because from what I have heard about the other morphs, they are much shyer.

Good luck with those guys

Whats the care like on these? Similar to larger PDF's?
Let's see...

- like it cool
- are a small large PDF (smaller than a Surinam Cobalt tinc for example)
- seem to appreciate a water feature
- seem to prefer smaller food items - mine will chase melanogasters before hydei. Funny, because the froglets switched to FFs quickly.

Not care related - and like all of this, anecdotal:

- slow maturing (2yrs before good clutches)
- seasonal (spring and fall)

I'd love to hear from others who have been successful w/ these guys.

Excellent Stem,

Nice youtube feed... you just inadvertently consumed my entire evening! haha

Ps. I noticed some of that tropical moss (it is tropical, right?)... you wouldn't happen to be able to spare some extra would you? I shall reward handsomely! pm me if you don't mind!

I really appreciate it!
