and your point to this thread??? grow up
Yeah, um, wow. Have you ever heard of the infamous Taron Langhover, and how he screws innocent people by letting them purchase unhealthy, sick, (and possibly smuggled) animals for overpriced amounts of money?

(Now, imagine a speaker speaking in an announcing like voice straight out of a superhero cartoon)

But us, most of the community of Dendroboard, will stop at NOTHING to warn people about him and keep his terrible schemes at bay. And, no matter how many threads are closed/deleted about Taron, we will continue to warn people and do our best to help people from becoming a victim of his crimes.

Jordan77, Why would you protect this guy? Working close with reputable breeders like you do, I'd think you would understand why this keeps being brought up. Why protect scum?

Thank you Doug. Keep the word out there as loud as you can.
Thanks for the support. I wouldn't go so far as to say Jordan actually supports Taron. Likely he is tired of the constant public awareness about DFC and Taron. Too bad, it won't get dropped, ever.

In fact, the FIRST person I met in San Antonio was screwed over by Taron.

I can vouch for this as I was there when he told us that the frogs he got from Taron came in sick and died not long after in his care. I take it that's ok Jordan77? It's kinda hard to turn your head from a duche bag like this.

There are many hobbyists on this forum that don't have a concern over Taron and his actions as long as they or a friend of theirs doesn't get screwed over. That's the wrong attitude to take. As long as vendors like this are around and their frogs are being purchased it effects all of us as a whole. By one person in the hobby supporting these shady businesses the whole hobby is. Wake up people, you should care. It's akin to saying, well I don't buy smuggled frogs but I don't care if other people do either. It effects us all as a small, tight knit hobby.

I have two frogs I purchased from DFC. If anyone wants details on the purchases and the issues I have had I will share.

The one good thing is this led me here, in a search for what I needed to do to keep these frogs alive.

I have noticed that threads regarding DFC get deleted here, so just message me if you want some first person information that is unbiased (I don't know these people and am not a breeder).

I would like to hear what issues you had with your transaction and what shape your frogs came in. I don't see why your post should be deleted as you are voicing your transaction/giving vender feed back. If your post does get deleted there are many dart frog forums out there that won't delete your post. Post on please.

The real shame here is that there may not be ANY reputable froggers at this particular event. We were unable to secure a booth before they sold out, and I didn't see any breeder's names that I recognized (beyond those mentioned already) in the vendor list. DFC wins by default this time.
I will be stopping at the show briefly, mostly to pick up some fly cups, but I'll be sure to swing by Taronland and document anything that isn't aboveboard.

Ok guys, got back from the show. I saw the DFC booth and unfortunately there was a lot of people falling into their trap; throughout the 4 hours I was there their booth was very busy and they were making a lot if sales. I saw Taron and he seemed happy as heck tricking all these people buying from them. They had their frogs and tadpoles displayed in these very modern looking cubes that were about 6" x 6" with LED lighting them. The tadpoles they were selling were housed communally. I feel like that was mislead new people in the hobby to believe it is ok to due so. Being one of the first people there, they were still setting up when I got there and I saw Taron putting the frogs in the cubes and I feel he was handling them in a rough manner. One of the frogs even got dropped 3 feet to the ground and he pick it up in what seemed like a really strong grip(I felt like the frog was getting squeezed to death!). Lastly, he seemed to be the only person at the booth who knew anything about dart frogs. I saw many people asking questions and the other 3 staff members of DFC redirected all the people with questions to Taron claiming "Taron is the man with the answers".
I think that is sucks that they were able to have trick so many people today. They do not deserve the amount of customers they got today!

Had a last minute change of plans, won't be visiting the show. Hopefully some SCADS members will make the rounds and report anything shady or unacceptable.
Dane...sorry you couldn't attend..saw a few scads people there and saw only one vendor dealing with dart frogs...( the main subject of this thread!! )...I did check things out a bit and what I found disturbing was the girl who had just purchased an auratus dart frog from "A Vendor" She then preceded to tell others in the crowd that it was her first frog...Then started asking others in that vendors area ( not the vendor) how to care for it, what do you feed it???... Selling animals to others without providing husbandry procedures is irresponsible...I would be willing to guess that that frog will be living in inappropriate conditions...very sad!!!
