All I know is they are a group of 4 that came in together... Panamanian imports, they may be amazing high color Camo or their own morph, not sure but I know the 4 I have are the same morph. They are currently going through worming, fungus and antibacterial treatments, so far all 4 look good.
The reticulated came in with 3 others that look similar and I have to say unlike anything I have ever seen before, they are big black and turquoise reticulated, truely spectacular animals. We will see if they breed true or are variable, same with the white & green. So with a little patience we should learn a bit more about who these guys are.
absolutly fascinating Mark,i will try to keep up to speed on this.We are talking alot to a dutch auratus specialist,ha and a great guy. with your permission i would like to tell him about these,and maybe you two guys should talk,i am just a novice. He will be very interested in this,thanks for posting.when Q is over you must get some more pics up,i would love to see more detail of these,all the best luck wise with these Marc they look very special
Stu I owuld love for you to pass it on, my friend Pat Nabors is going to get all of the reticulated ones, he will post pics sometime soon of the group. I tokk pics of all 4 as soon as I got home with them, mind you they had been in cups for 4 or 5 days from Panama and I was trying to keep them in a small cup to photo them. These green and white were the only 4 out of a few hundred Auratus that looked like this locality, not even a few ugly ones of this type, which some may think these are...the other 2. They look like 1.3
it has been the dutch frog day today,i will speak to my friend soon (sorry to be vague but its ahh just manners eh?) ,he keeps reticulted and tobaga retic, funnily enough we very very nearly had some of these off him,one of the few oppurtunities we might get to some of these frogs here but we decided to wait for the moment.
Thanks for the extra pics!!
i will get back to you thanks for the help elsewhere too
The Campana region is the convergence and representative of MANY phenotypes, including what we call Capira, Camo, Campana, Khalua and Cream, etc. From what I understand, the diversity is amazing. I would guess they are from that area but, obviously, impossible to tell without actual info. Great frogs!
