    Talking New Male Pixie Frog!

    Today I went to a reptile show, and I bought a male pixie frog! I don't know the age of him but he is definately a male. He is 6.5 inches svl. I haven't named him yet, help me think of a name.

    Nice. Now I'm going to hit you with a couple of questions lol. What reptile show did you go to? How many African Bullfrogs did they have? How much was he?

    Congrats though, I know you were as well as many people still are in search of one like this.

    As for a name, I think you should come up with one yourself

    I went to the F.I.R.E. expo in Orlando, surprisingly there were only 2 pixies at the whole show! And he was $150, the price you have to pay to get a real ABF.

    Nice to see somebody actually getting what they paid for. Lots of Afrcan Bullfrog mislabeling threads lately. 150 is a bit much for my blood. I lucked out though, got mine for 25, thanks to misinformed pet store owner who was selling it as a pacman

    Tell me about it lol! True pixies are just sooo hard to find, at least where I live. Like I said above, there were only 2 pixie frogs at the whole expo! Maybe I should move to Canada lol!

    TJ,

    You got a great deal. I saw the pixies at the show and that pixie is worth at least $300. Good get. I spent some of my time talking to guy at that booth. Very nice and knowledgeable.

    I have been watching a female, from a different vendor, for months. She is around 5" svl and $250. Any Pixie adspersus are very difficult to find currently. Supposedly there is a real shortage, right now.

    I have two that I bought at the Daytona show last year that are 4-5 inches svl. It looks like one of the two is a female. I am thrilled to have a pair.

    Great pixie.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    And there aren't many people wanting to buy a female pixie either, most people want males. I have been trying to sell my female for a couple of weeks now on Craigslist, but I'm having no luck.

    Use kingsnake instead.

    @TJ: Nice finds! But here is my recommendation. Now just a thought! But why not keep the female, and since you have a male.... Why not start a breeding programm? Pixie frogs are going to become a monolopy if this keeps up. Btw I remember seeing a "true" giant pixie frog for 35bucks in a store I went to once. It was treated like an american bullfrog but in a small tank. Tank was filfthy though. I think it was afemale? its been there for over a year. Or maybe it was a dwarf. I doubt it though. Anywho. With some luck and knowledge. Should you breed them, you can get some dough out of it. Dont put it up more than a 120. Unless you're a world known breeder. Its so you build up your reputation and then you get more sales. Plus, pixies lay a ton of egg. If you put one for 100bucks each then yeah. Oh as for males. I dont know if this works for frogs. But this works for turtles. If you keep the temperature higher I think you get males. Or was it females? Well its like this if you keep the temp high you mainly get one sex batch. Same with low temps. But check with other people. XD I think this works for avians too? I dont know. Since both hatch from eggs(just brainstorming). Hmmm make sure to let them grow a bit. Atleast 3-4inches(sub-adults). You post pictures on a site, youtube videos(of the adults laying the eggs, then hatching, then the whole metamorphosis process-only stages like tail and head, leg, legs, front legs, no tail, etc.), advertisements, referances, REFUNDS, etc. And you should start getting buyers at some point which if they get a "good" buy then they will probably tell their friends and online forums like these. ;] JUST a thought.
    @Jeff: Glad to know you found some true giants. Btw this d oesnt just happens with frogs. Ived seen people get conned thinking they're buying one animal but they are buying another. Its not just online. Even petstores. Ived seen red eared sliders pass off as "cooters" on certain petstores. In reality these are REALLY old adult RES. RES loose their bright red patches after 10 years or so. Their shells darken, and so do their colors. Only the stripes remain. Not many people are intelligent en ough to tell appart.
    @Meatball: Good luck with the finding a true giant. You should try a local petstore. Even try petsmarts, sure they may have the animal sick, but a few vet visits wont cure. Or just order one in a lfs. Personally I think giants should not go for more than 50bucks.
    @Jo anna: I guess it is hard to find pixies. Oddly enough I find them like crazy. I have this thing that when Iam not looking for something I find it. But when Iam I dont find it. LOL. Maybe you should breed yours and ALSO start your own breeding project?

    The only problem is that it is extremely extremely hard to breed pixie frogs. That is why there are few people who do it. Making these frogs so valuable.

    I just don't get the not wanting female Pyxies. I love my female. She may not get as big, but she has twice the personality!!

    Honestly, would you buy a $300 frog? I just can't imagine a frog being worth that much, never mind paying that. I love my Pyxies, don't get me wrong, and I have been offered quite a bit of money for my males, but I just can't wrap my head around paying that much for an animal that, let's be honest, sits in dirt, eats, poops and likes to soak in water.

    TJ, may I ask why you are selling your female?

    Jo-Anna, the reason I want to sell my female pixie is because on top of my two pixie frogs I have two leopard geckos and fish. As you know it's expensive to own multiple animals. I originally planned to only own one pixie frog, and I wanted a male. Most likely I won't be able to sell my female regardless, because most buyers want the big males.
