ok as some of you know we have 3 camo auratus,one is similar to the pics on the above threads...ie

but the other 2 look more like this

I am a novice but i have a very knowledgeable mate in holland whom says they don't look like camos at all,(the blue ones that is,well not like his in holland anyway).
As i have traced these back to america i thought you guys might be able to give me more info on whether this is possible within this same morph/line. I know many of our frogs exhibit polymorphism is that the case here?

Stu many of the nice or odd Auratus morph don't fully color up until they are a year old, that being said your look like Super Blue which are a blue & bronze morph and really spectacular as adults.

Hi Mark wow that was quick,thankyou,these frogs should be camos,well thats what there were sold as,and they should have come via about the safest route that a beginner here (uk) can buy a frog,'im just wondering about whether there might have been a genuine mix up somewhere. Thankyou for your thoughts,and your words about the colours changing over time i do have some awareness of this ie the bronze becomming more"grey over time" but maybe not quite to the same level as what your implying. The male pictured is truely stunning and is a very large frog(to my beginners eyes) i wish you could see them,as i do the frogs i posted on of yours tonight My good friend inholland thinks they might be panama special,i am bemused but absolutly chuffed to have them.Although i really do not want to be mixing something i shouldn't when we breed.
i will come back to you on this as withthe other post of yours i am not very good at multitasking on a computer!
Thanks kind sir
Stu

I thought they looked like Super Blues too. Here are some threads with pics of my Super Blues. Their colors and patterns have changed a lot in the year I've had them. The first thread, they are approximately 5 months old. Second thread they are over a year old.

Aside from having my own auratus, I am far from an auratus expert, though.:D

Ah Kris thats absolutly priceless,genuinely had me laughing out loud,erm what about Chris k? this is really funny and getting confusing as i don't see letters quite like others i think....Still chuckling.
Back to these bronze/super blue auratus,we have just gone though another thread on the members frogs section er i think. they look almost identical to ours,the biggy on this for me tonight(that might change tomorrow:confused:) is that all our frogs might be of the same morph just the actual nomenclature is unclear,and this is the most important thing to us as we don't want to take any back (were are already besotted with them even though 2 are not seen much) and we desparatly want to breed. I might not be able to see the new frogs that have come to the uk as they were sold within minutes of going on sale. Am slowly being more convinced that we don't have camos though we do have some absolutly stunning auratus.
Thankyou Kris for your help and equally almost for making me laugh so much,it gets better as i have an aunty Chris...laughing again
