Good morning everyone,

A couple months ago, I bought two darts from a local pet store. One person told me they were Mantellas, one told me Terribilis. I knew they weren't Mantellas and bought them assuming they were Terribs, but the inconsistency made me hesitant. Neither of them told me how old the frogs were, so I can only guess. I thought they could have been 2-3 months at the time, but they were the same solid orange as they are now so maybe older. They have grown considerably, but not to the size I expected for Terribilis. Could they be Bicolor? I'm having a hard time taking clear pictures with my camera, so these are the best I've got for now.

Also, I have a group of 3 Costa Rican G&B Auratus. Again, struggling with the camera, but I took the best picture I could at the time. Anyone able to sex them based on this picture? These are the smaller of the two. They should be at least 7-10 months at this point.

No, I haven't heard any calling. I tried using recordings of Auratus calls to stimulate them just this morning and it seemed to get their attention but no calling.

I really think they are Terribilis, but anytime I see pictures of Gold Bicolors on certain sites I think they could be that. I want to buy more but not until I know for sure what I've got.

Ok well I'm glad others seem confident they're Terribilis. Maybe they were younger than I thought when I got them and they still have some growing to do.

I've seen the pictures of Bicolors in general. My specific concern is the Gold Bicolor. If you google that, you get a picture from this site and a picture from Josh's Frogs which both show little or no variation in body/leg color. This is also true if you look up Gold Bicolor on SNDF.

Well today I decided to try to sex my Varadero to find it a mate. Anyone want to give it a guess? This is the best picture I could get before it bolted.

Thanks, I've read that before but didn't think to look again. Based on look alone I'd guess male but without anything to compare it to I find that its hard to do visually.

Picked up two more Varadero Imitators last week (one almost certainly female, not sure about the other). Woke up this morning to hear the one I already had (and pictured on previous page) calling. Not a bad start to the day.
