A couple of shots of my Shepard Island (Isla Pastores) pumilio. I haven't seen too many pictures of these on the board in the past couple of years.

Although they are a bit more on the shy side - the bronze-green coloration is awesome.

I would say they are 'at risk' of being lost in captivity as they are a very uncommon morph

Whomever gets the juvis from Oz should register them as he has and work toward finding additional juvis to combine/trade with others here....to keep the genetics strong.

I would encourage TWI/ASN stewards to try and work with them if you have the time/space.

very nice.

I highly agree, these and loma partidas are extremely difficult to find these days.

Yeah I was considering taking a shot, just trying to determine if I can make the extra space and if others would be able to be found to match them up with

ChrisK -

I am pretty sure that Thomas Villegas is still working with them - as well as a couple of other West Coast Froggers. Shoot me a PM if you want to talk more.


Scott -

Glad to hear that the Lomas are settling in for you.

That is true (I'm not, however). This is actually the first pumilio form I saw in person and became familiar with...strange that it's remained so uncommon. Probably a casualty of the "little greenish-brown frog" syndrome.

Stunning pumilio! You always have great picture quality.

As far as the little green brown frog syndrome, I honestly think they are some of the more eye pleasing and beautiful pumilio. But then again I like green :)
