Received 4 of these from Adam last week. They're 10 months oow. I'm very happy with them because of their boldness and the sheer vibrance of the colors. I purposefully designed their terrarium to have a low amount of bright green so that they are easily spotted. I had the pleasure of seeing (and feeding) Ray/Stemcellular's "Highland" variabilis in late 2009 and by comparison the "Southern" race is definitely larger and very bold (and prettier in my opinion).











Notice how the first frog could pass for a CV imitator!

Oh, they move alright. Patience and experience help though. Mind you, these are easy to photograph when compared to wild salamanders (what i spend most of my free time photographing).

Very nice...any chance we can get a FTS, your description of it has me very interested.
I'll try. I'm a little ashamed that the tank isn't very big but it's all I have to hand right now.

Stripy is a very jumpy frog. I only photographed it once or twice but I'll put one up. Thanks for these great frogs Adam.

Dang, John. They are gorgeous. And, I must add that your photography makes every frog look great. You're not photo-shopping a little extra color touch up here and there, are you? :D JK You could make prints on canvas and offer them for sale. I bet there'd be a lot of takers.
