I think you are misunderstanding the process here. The auratus that are coming in wouldn't normally come in otherwise. In order to get the pumilio, importers are forced to also order hundreds of auratus and red eyed tree frogs. Many of which will never leave the importers business - the demand is just not there. Many, or some say most, of these frogs may be doomed.

As far as the pumilio go, whether it be hundreds of dollars or 95, they are still quite high. It was only a couple of years ago that we were paying $25.

Getting that rare and elusive frog is not always "good" for the hobby. Outrageous prices and huge numbers of unwanted "not so rare frogs", in my opinion, is definetly not good for the hobby.

Again, just my opinion - take it or leave it.
