This is a group of 5 i'm housing temporarily until the Show in Raleigh tomorrow.. Figured i'd share..Got some pretty good pictures I think...

P.S. I fully understand the housing requirements of the frogs... It just seemed a better idea to keep them in a larger space for the 2 days as opposed to deli cups.. =0)

Nice looking frogs!

It amazes me that everyone's Cobalts look different! It seems there is an absurd amount of natural varience with this species particularly... Anyone else notice the same?

Thanks J .... they're awesome frogs... I've never had frogs that were easier to take pictures of.. they most Definetly are not shy ...

I've also noticed the wide variety of colors and markings. When I got these home the other day, I just didn't remember seeing others that looked similar.. The colors are all there... but the markings are just so different. So I tooled around on the good ol' interwebs to find other pictures, and I was surprised at how every group of frogs just looked so different from the previous group.

They do look somewhat similar... but the differences are noticeable.in person compared to the alanis. I have "known" the parents of these frogs for a few years... they're for sure cobalts... as sure as I can be anyhow... I would say that the parents look more like what I picture cobalts to look like.... Just one of those things I guess...

Just a testament to the diversity seen in Cobalts! Very nice frogs! I know what you are saying about offspring differing greatly from parents color-wise. When I first posted pics of my Cobalts, a lot of people asked if they were in fact Brazilian Yellow Head, however, they came from my mom, and I have seen her Tincs for years... They are Standard Cobalts. Thanks for sharing!

Well...It looks as though you may have a few more folks in the same boat... I guess a few breeders saw these guys at the Raleigh show this past weekend and mentioned the same thing.. I'm going to have to do some research and figure it out. I definetly don't want to misrepresent what these guys are.. they're gourgeous one way or the other.. but now I NEED to figure it out...

I think generaly the term "cobalt" refers to the color of the legs, so the name seems to fit. Alanis tend to have black kegs with white or yellow makings. Black Sauls or Yellowbacks can have very similar bodies, but also have bleck legs.

Very nice photos. Thanks for sharing them. Richard.

Yeah .. the more I research... the more I go away from Alanis.. looks like maybe Brazilian .. but still seems like Suriname.. but I guess time will tell .. Im going to start a new thread or maybe get in touch with some veteran Froggers and ask for some help... Either way.. Theyre beautiful frogs.. and I'm going to enjoy taking pics of them as long as I have em....Thanks for the compliments...
