I worked out a trade so I could get a new retic group with another member in the hobby. Here they are:








The group is 4 retics...Now before I show everyone this 4th frog hear me out. In no way do I plan on line breeding this frog or ever keep it in a group with another one like it. I do not view this as line breeding and can not see the need to cull it either. I understand that if it was in the wild it would not live. However, this frog wasn't born in the wild so I see no reason not to care for it just because its an "odd ball" dart frog.

Congrats, Albino retics have lived past a year easy, Bred and I know Rich had an aadult albino, I believe its in his book. No need to cull it, while I see no need to further breed for the trait others do. Its your choice man......The albino looks a bit frail so it may not make it to that point. I dont know if I would have moved it this young.

I agree, I was surprised how small they were when he shipped them...all I can do now though is give them lots of springs and hope for the best!!!

Well good luck with them, They are a very great addition to any collection. Most have kept retics back in morphing tubs till they hit the 4-5 months oow mark. I usually didnt hand them off until 6 months and even then I preferred to hand out probable pairs or trios. Looking the pics Id guess they are UE line. Ive seen a slight difference in a few different lines here as far as pattern and the amount of red.

Nice retics, Chris! I have an albino one myself I picked up a few years ago at Frog Day (might be from the same line as yours). He's smaller than the other retics, but he's also wicked cool and doesn't seem to have any problems getting around.

Best of luck. Let me know if you ever need any springs. =) I always have a bunch for my tiny guys.

Best,
Ash

She is sweat!!!!!! Congrats on the eggs!!!

Chris; congrats on the new frogs they are awesome lookin!

I will ask this here as well.

Is there a difference between albino and 'white foot'?

Heres my white foot, you can see the albino characteristics, with a flash you even see the pink in the eyes







BTW she is producing good eggs ;)
