Anyone seen any of these in the U.S.?
The photo you've got there looks like auratus "ancon hill". Might also be auratus "Darien" that is a smaller auratus.KeroKero said:I've seen some interesting yellow/light goldish auratus come in from the panama imports that DID have those morkings. Interesting animals, but they didn't have colors that were that strongly orange. Then I checked out the pics on the page the frog came from and my eyes wanted to bleed some of that stuff is so bright. So my guess is yes, that is an auratus, yes, its one of the panama imports much like the others look to be, but the colors are off due to the frog probibly being in shade (darkening the yellow/gold to orange) and the camera pulling out colors rather brightly.
I personally have pics of the type frog I'm talking about, but can't find a page to link it, and don't wanna mess with the new copyright stuff. WorldWideFauna seems to no longer have the pic on its site. Blue is basically the green missing yellow. These frogs are an example of the green missing blue.... leaving an interesting yellow color.
This is the best link i can find: http://www.wildsky.net/frogs/eeeauratusblackgold.htm
Some hawaiian auratus (maybe not in the hobby but in hawaii photos) also show coloration more towards yellow/gold.
Whats interesting is "auratus" means golden, be we rarely see anything other than the green and blue forms.
