There are such things as true sips, but they are very rare and only a handful around. I think the last froglets went for like $400 each. That is way more like a cobalt, and the amount of yellow can vary as well as how bright it is due to several factors. Cobalt tincs are from the sipaliwini area, but are not rare in the hobby at all. Still "rare" in perspective I suppose just since dart frogs are not kept as commonly as many other herps.Frogs main
On sean's Stewarts webpage ^^ it looks exactly like the sip savannah line. Not enough yellow in it to be a cobalt. The guy who sold it to me seemed pretty convincing that it was a sip savannah. I am hoping it is but thus far for everyone's input I am leaning towards cobalt.
I've seen tincs such as cobalts and azureus go for around $80-110 at pet stores, but from hobbyists/ breeders you can usually find them for about $30-40.Also I payed a good chunk of change for this frog and another one just like it. Unfortunately one died and this is the only one left. I am hoping I didn't get ripped off. This frog is a true show piece in my house.
You paid $700.00 for 2 froglets from "Clyde peelings Reptileland" in Pennsylvania ?No the guy told me it was a true sip. I sure payed the price for the pair. If you must know I dropped 350 per frog. I have many other darts but these two were supposed to be the prize of my collection of all my animals I own. Thanks for all the input Bryan. But maybe know you see why I am wondering if this one is a true sip? kicking myself in the ass right about now.
If you purchased them from Adam, then you didn't get them from Clyde Peeling's Reptile Land... If you had you would have been provided with paperwork in accordance with the AZA's requirements to tranfer animals to the public (and AZA has issues with money changing hands). Now it may be true that the person works for or with Reptile Land, but the frogs aren't being sold by Reptile Land.. If you don't believe me contact Reptile Land and ask them directly.Breeder is a guy by the name of Adam Richmond and claims he works/close relation to Clyde. He claims he supplies Clyde as well as other reptile facilities. His big claim is his sales to the exhibit chorus of colors. I don't believe Adam is a member of this forum.
Thanks for that info Ed. I had no idea they would have papers on them. I did ask him and he is claiming it's a true and rare sip. I saw the pair he has and they looked almost exact to that of thE one on Stewarts page. I posted the link to that page earlier. I thought I would get many opinions on here cause now that she is over a year old I have a few doubts, but also can see the similarities as well to a true sip. As far as getting a hold of Adam I have not been able to. I am hoping that by tomorrow I can get clarification from him. Thanks to everyone on here for all the info and help. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
