These are bronze auratus. These are probably choice selections if you get up to michigan bill weirts has one not so white(where the brown should be) ,but close, as those but very similar markings.

Tony,

I'm not sure which morphs Bill is working with, but these are a distinct morph from the green and bronze auratus that were brought in recently from Panama. I have seen them called the 'Birkhan' morph on european websites (see http://www.tropical-experience.nl/auratus/index.htm). I have seen both the morph Sean is working with and other green and bronze that were brought in over the past couple years and they are definetely distinct. The green and bronze portions appear to be more of a lighter pastel color on the birkhan morph, as opposed to a darker green and darker brown 'bronze' (compare to http://www.qualityexotics.com/images/Bronze_Auratus2.jpg). Both certainly nice frogs.

The Birkhan morph is gorgeous but I haven't heard of anyone else having sucess with them, although they've been in the US hobby for at least 5 years so hopefully there are others out there. Take care,

Bill has a little nicer one than his pic on his website. Like i said looks a bit more like the ones in the pic but is not exact. I agree I have not seen any as pastel in the US.
