    Default My Small Haul From the LI Reptile Expo Today

    I just got home from the expo and brought with me 3 little pacs. I preordered 2 from Dart Frog Depot and decided to go for a 3rd. I got a peppermint, a strawberry, and a lime green. I can't wait to go back in March after I get my tax return.

    Nice froggies and congrats. You do know the last one is an albino lime green right? If these are your first and you didn't know that don't put heavy duty lighting over him or any uvb. That's exactly what my albino is and what she looked like when she was young. She has lost the green from what I can see now that she is an adult but she still has very nice bright orange markings. Im editing to add that I totally overlooked the strawberry which would be an albino also. I imagine you already know this but just thought I would point it out just in case.

    Nice frogs! There were several frog/supply vendors at the show including us (Vivariums In The Mist), Fern's Frogs, Frog Nerd and Tincman Herps...

    Thanks guys!

    I would have replied sooner but for some reason, I never got the subscription emails for the thread.

    Yeah, they were cute and pretty when I bought them, but the peppermint and lime didn't make it a week. The strawberry is eating like a champ and has gotten bigger. But with this, this will be the first and last time I ever buy from a show.

    I worked in pet stores for over 20 years. I've raised a couple hundred of these frogs and never lost one. I've never owned one until a few months ago, but this isn't right.

    I pre-paid for 2 frogs. You'd think they would have been cherry picked. No. I ended up with the last peppermint that looked as if it hadn't eated in a while. It was hell to get it to eat.

    Both the peppermint and the lime shared a tank with a divider. The peppermint died and then the lime a day later. The strawberry was in another tank.

    How can I complain to Luxurious Leopards aka Dart Frog Depot? I lost my money. $40 worth. Thank you, guys. I was planning on going back to the show in March with my tax return to pick up some more Pacs, Hognoses and Cresteds, but this tells me to not bother again.

    Just so stupid.

    Sorry to hear that 2 of them didn't make it. Do you know why they passed? Did they show any signs of sickness or was it one of those doing great one day and not so good the next.

    I'd certainly contact them and explain the situation. They might be forthcoming and help you out.

    I am a newbie. Are any of those morphs the kind that may have a low mortality rate? Did I say that right? They were very beautiful! Do lime green albinos have any link to the samuri lime greens I see on the internet?What is a strawberry albino? How os peppermint different from lime greens?
