    Cool Phyllobates terribilis "Blackfoot Orange" - FrogForum EXCLUSIVE!

    I was fortunate enough to get the first look at the new Phyllobates terribilis (Golden Poison Frog) races imported by Indoor Ecosystems to the USA from Tesoros de Colombia. These are the first legally imported specimens of Phyllobates terribilis in the USA, ever. US hobbyists have long wanted to get hold of legally imported Phyllobates terribilis and thanks to Tesoros and Indoor Ecosystems we finally have them.



    And as you can see, these frogs are stunning. There is quite a bit of variation between individuals. Of the Blackfoot Orange morph (pictured), some are completely uniform in color, some have more yellowish legs and orange bodies, and many have very black undersides. Many have black feet, as the morph name suggests, but not all. The morphological variation hopefully means genetic diversity, something lacking in the current lines found in captivity here in the US.

    How orange are these frogs? Here's one of the most orange posing with a color chart:



    And here's a less intensely orange individual of the Blackfoot Orange race:



    These frogs were captive bred in Colombia from captive bred parents (making these frogs arriving in the USA F2). Being born and raised in captivity, they are free of Batrachotoxin.



    By purchasing frogs originating at Tesoros de Colombia, you are supporting the legal captive breeding and export of frogs from Colombia. Supporting Tesoros and its associates helps to fight the illegal smuggling of frogs. Tesoros has some exciting species on the horizon and by supporting them now we can look forward to future gems.



    Many thanks to Indoor Ecosystems, Understory Enterprises, and Tesoros de Colombia. These spectacular frogs will be in US hobbyist hands soon.

    Frogs look great John; like the fourth photograph lots! Is Understory selling these?
    Remember to take care of the enclosure and it will take care of your frog !​

    They're beautiful John!

    Carlos ~ Although the relationship with Tesoros was engineered by Understory, U.S. sales are essentially "direct" (they don't pass through Canada). The frogs from Tesoros are imported to Indoor Ecosystems and distributed on from there. Much of the management is ultimately through Understory though (at least that's my understanding).

    Cheers,

    Carlos: I believe all of the frogs in this shipment are spoken for but if you contact me privately I may be able to help you if you want some. Understory is handling the financial end but Indoor Ecosystems is handling all of the logistics (these frogs came straight to the US).

    If a pair means 9 frogs, then yes? Not sure where you're getting the pair thing from - there are 9 in there. From what I can ascertain, the oldest are 12-14 months. This is my own estimate based on hearing a little calling and the size of the frogs versus my yellow terribilis group.

    Yes! I've gone to the dark side.

    Frankly, they're so much easier to keep than everything else.

    I'm really glad you ended up with some of these. They are absolutely beautiful. I hope Tesoros has better luck with future imports.

    Beautiful frogs! I love the orange/black feet combination. Excited to see what is in store in 2014 from Tesoros!
