    Default Agalychnis Moreleti

    I found this site called reptiles-n-critters.com. they have A. Moreletis for sale. i was thinking about buying one but im positive they are wild caught. do you think i should buy from there? is there a better place to buy them? this is the only place i know of. also the care. there arent to many care sheets out there but im assuming its the same as red-eyes. please correct me if im wrong it would be much appreciated

    thanks,
    Isaac

    They are almost certainly wild caught - I know of no captive breeding source of this species. The care is the same as Red Eyes - you are right. As for ordering from them, I really don't know what to tell you. I don't like to give business to sellers of wild caught animals but if you want them and it's the only source then your choice is made.

    I just did some checking around and I couldn't find any serious complaints about dealing with them.

    Agalychnis moreletii - IUCN (Red List) status: Critically Endangered (CR).

    Just something to think about.

    yeah i really dont know. as you know kurt i was looking for clown tree frogs and i found this site but apparently the clowns were sold out so i was looking at their site and i came across this species. i already knew what they were etc. but i never knew they were on the market. so i dont know. if i do decide to buy one, ill let you know. since i found these frogs i did a bit of research and i found a source carrying for them and they looked some what healthy. Amphibiancare.com >> Gallery >> Other Amphibians
    unfortunately they do not sell so i dont know what to do yet. but these people are breeding them so maybe they will start selling. who knows? they might. ill keep my fingers crossed.

    A bit unstable too. Their stock changes drastically each week, as do their shipping prices.

    Just a month or so back, shipping was 100 USD no mater what was purchased.

    Currently, a lot of their prices are extreme in my opinion.

    I'm tempted buy something they have in stock but the shipping price is hard to swallow considering I live about 20 miles from where they ship.

    Amphibiancare.com is Devin Edmonds' web site. He provided me with a photo for my article on red-eyes. In his book he states that Agalychnis annae is sometimes available, but I have yet to see any for sale. He has a picture of one on his web site and I have been meaning to e-mail him and ask him where can I get some, but just haven't gotten around to it yet.

    I guess I could, but then again you could as well. I believe his web address is on his site.

    This is truly one of my dream species. Has anyone ordered from them since this post started?
