This is our very first baby Varadero. The parents are from Sean Stewart. We have three more in a grow-out tank and many tads on their way. Most of them have a lot of black and blue and not much orange. Is this common for young Varaderos? Will they color in? Either way we are pumped. Enjoy!

Looks nice! Colors and patterns can change some, but if I had to guess, that particular froglet will have a lot of "blue lightning" to him.

Thanks guys!

Doug, Thanks for the heads up. I had one morph out the other day that is nearly all black and blue. Looks very cool. I will try to get pic of him.

Congrats on the young.....I have had them vary quite a bit from a lot of orange to a lot of blue....So far they(18 froglet/juvie) have not changed much in 4 months with their pattern so I would assume that what they look like now is most likely what they will stay.....

We use a 1.5 gallon tank with sphagnum, fresh plant cuttings and a lot of springtails. Everyday we put in a few dusted melanos for the larger frogs.

I have also attached a pic of our Varadero with just a little orange.

Great looking little froglet! Hopefully you will have a few if you make it down this way for a meet.
Wife says we have to keep a couple of the first born, but the rest I am more than happy to trade or sell. They are growing fast and should be ready for a new home in a couple more months.

Very nice! I predict the orange may fill out more through the head area and will get much brighter. I think the back will remain very high in "blue lightning". I think both the orange and the blue will get much brighter. Most of mine don't have large amounts of the blue lightning so I think it's really cool.
You can never tell for sure what the colors will do as they grow but Max and I have been watching ours morph out so this is an "experienced guess".

Hi Eric,

So...cute...makes...me...want...to...cry! (lol).

Congrats on the babies. This is such a rewarding species to work with.

Take care, Richard.
