1.1.0 campana auratus
1.0.1 Green & Black costa rican auratus
0.1.0 Blue black auratus

My name is Brett Lonergan, and I am in Tulsa, OK.
The only things that I ever sell are springtails, tropical and temperate, and I can sell fruit flies. Let me know if you need any, local only. (Local being Tulsa and occationally OKC area.)

I only know of three other froggers in Oklahoma that are one this board. We will see if they respond.

I grew up in Oklahoma, does that count? lol I'm originally from Ardmore, OK. I lived in Texas for a few years and now I'm in Maryland. My family is still down there, so I try to make it down at least once a year.

Nice to meet Brett, Let me know if you ever want any Azureus. James, if you're ever in the area drop a line. I used to live out in Germantown MD. Maybe if we get enough people in our area connected we could get together for trades, buys, meetings and what have ya.
Brett, if you know of any locally that want any azureus let me know.

Eh hate to admit i live here but OK ;) .... Hi!

Keeping a few newts, a fire bellied toad,1 gecko, 3 darkland babies and 2 tads being raised on chicken egg yolk, and one black bassleri. Had 40+ dart frogs and a few geckos till the recent ice storm wiped most of em out and killed alot of my viv plants....so im in the process of rebuilding and reorganizing. Probably never gonna go as big as i did, stickin with a half dozen larger tanks instead of the 15+ i had going at one time.

I'm not in OK, but my folks live there in Newkirk. If I don't have much success with finding locals here in CO, I might just have to mix and match on my trips down to see them. I can already imagine the response when I tell 'em. "hey mom, I gotta go see a guy about a frog."

Just so long as I don't have to transport them in a blizzard like the one I hit last Christmas. Started snowing before I got outta Colorado Springs, snow stopped in Pratt, KS, and started raining, which stopped somewhere around 20 minute after I got to Newkirk.

Hey, that's cool. I live in Broken Arrow. Feel free to give me a call when you're in town. 918.282.0158. I breed or usually have available: Azureus, luecomelas, Blue/ green/ teal/ auratus, Tinc. Citronella, & Tinc. Cobalts.

I know what you mean about transporting too. Though I just took a family trip to florida and took some frogs down traded for new frogs, kept them in my hotel for a week and took them back on the two day car trip. We were dealing with 90+ degree heat which isn't much better than freezing conditions. It's not that difficult actually to insulate and keep the frogs warm if you'll be in a warm car and can keep them with you if you get out or stay some where over night. The funniest thing on our trip was to see the managers face at Applebee's when I told him that I had Poison dart frogs in the bag I was carrying. I though we might get kicked out, but he thought it was pretty cool.

Hi.
I am located in SE Tulsa near Broken Arrow.
I current breed and sell Azureus and in the summer should have Cobalts and Citronellas ready. I also have D. Leucomelas that are unsexed.

Ben,
I think I purchased my Azureus pair from your around a year ago.??? Did you used to work at the Ultimate Reefs store?

Let me know if anyone is interested in selling or trading frogs locally.

If anyone still reads this thread, I'll be going to college at OSU next fall, and am hoping I might get to keep a couple of my tanks for research purposes.
If you are staying in the dorms there, I think we were allowed fish at least if the tank wasn't to large. You could probably sneak it in and claim it will be a fish tank if anyone asks, or if your RA is cool you may not have to hide anything. Try to get a room facing the girls dorm...its worth it, trust me ;)

Hahaha ;) I'm actually hoping to get a suite with a couple of my buddies that are going too, or else I'd be all about that. I'm hoping to get to keep the frogs in the science building if the room isn't a possibility, as I'm applying for a Freshman Research position. I didn't know you went to OSU, what did you major in?

Yep, was up there for 6? years...7.5 in college total ;) 1 freshman level math class away from an uncertified teaching degree in secondary ed social studies. I'd have to take methods, and then student teach for the certified degree. I may go back to get the uncertified just because of the doors it might open job hunting, but I kinda decided I don't wanna actually teach. I worked at Jr murphys on the strip as a door man for awhile, and also lived in jefferson commons apts after I got out of the dorms. In the dorm was on the 9th floor of kerr facing the girls dorm. It was the engineering floor since my bestfriend/roomate was majoring in that. Those guys know how to party...friday night in the common room playing magic the gathering...whoo hoo! ;) I had a good time up there, and slept a lot so thats why no degree ;) But I almost got one and I didn't do crap...Some classes I never even bought the books for and still passed, and 1 I showed up for orientation and for the 3 or 4 test days and it was a 3 day a week class, never opened my book and was 10 points away from a B ;) You can take advantage of the system and minimize the needed effort a lot of times. I'm not encouraging that...but uh FYI ;)
