    Default Fair Asking Price for Female P. Edulis?

    About a year ago, I ordered a juvenile adspersus male from BackwaterReptiles.com and received an edulis instead. After being refused a refund, I decided to keep the frog. It turns out that it's a female, with a creamy white throat and yellow along her sides. She was a wild capture from southern Mozambique, and is now almost 4" snout to vent. She eats well on a staple diet of dubia roaches and earthworms. While she's a very cool frog, it's not the giant I was wanting, and the setup I have is designed for a much larger frog. There's a reptile show coming up in Indiana, and I'd like to get a true adspersus. The problem is that I don't have the funds for another setup to be able to keep both frogs. I'm going to see if I can sell my girl at the upcoming show. So my question is this - what is a fair asking price for a healthy wc female P. edulis that's a little over a year old?

    It depends if it's actually an edulis or a "dwarf," which is actually much more likely. For a dwarf I'm say $30-$40, $70-$75 for a true edulis. You should post pictures.

    Mike you got a great deal considering it looks like you got true edulis. Phillipe sells true edulis for a good amount.

    I just got a what was sold to me as a male pixie Goliath from Backwater Reptiles and I'm hoping I didn't get stung with a dwarf wild caught as you did. How did you find out the back ground info on the frog? They said that the one I purchased was captive bred, I would b ticked to find out that it was wild caught. Cool looking frog though

    jfw if you post a pic it's rather easy to tell if its a true giant, dwarf, or edulis.

    I found out about the frog's background when I e-mailed BackwaterReptiles.com to tell them they'd sent the wrong frog. I spoke with Sam, he said mine came from a shipment that had just come in from Mozambique. I knew as soon as I saw the brown stripe down the back that it was wasn't a giant, but even after sending pictures, Sam wouldn't give me a refund or let me ship the frog back. He said he'd sold over 40 other frogs already and no one had known the difference. I paid $60 for it, and an additional $30 shipping. I had also specifically requested a male, but received a female. She was almost fully grown, too, since she's only grown a little over 1/2" in the year I've had her. Anyone who knew anything about these frogs could have looked at that shipment and known they weren't adspersus, but then again, Backwater Reptiles is a known drop shipper. I took a chance and I got burnt. I truly hope you didn't get burnt, too.

    That's great news, thank you Fluxcore, it's a hearty lil sucker what ever the hell it is. It's about 1.5 inches and it eats full grown crickets and had a go at my finger which was laughable now, maybe not so much down the road. I have an enormous female in a separate tank that I picked up before him, I'd safely guess that she's every bit of a pound and a half and close to six inches of pure fat hehe. I think tried to attach a picture of the She Brute.4
