    It is going to be a pain to repost everything that Andrew has posted everywhere, so I will just provide a link here. Let me know if you have any questions. Should be a great addition to our shows and hopefully this will bring in a few more dart frog people to the shows.

    I will be there with misting systems, temp controllers, cages, heat tape, and some other accessories. What are you bringing?

    Carson, youd have to fight with my shepherd and dachshund for 14 hours in the back seat ;). I should be bringing a car full of things. I wanted to bring some plant cuttings but ive been so busy up until now that I never got any planted (I might still though).

    The list isnt official (im still deciding on whether some frogs will be too small), but should include

    cb pumilio
    cb leucs
    cb Santa Isabel E. anthonyi
    cb Borja Ridge vents
    cb axolotls
    some reptiles
    maybe some other things

    Also I should have various feeders available.

    I wish I still lived in Calgary so I could bring a nice display tank.

    Malli,

    Im afraid theres nothing like this show in BC. There is an animal expo on the main land, but its mostly for cuddly animals. Also with all of the laws going around BC, there may never be a show in BC.

    3 types but unfortunately in small numbers,

    male basti
    male chiriqui's
    several almirante (unrelated F1 juvies) (import code PDP-JA-07, ie the Splashed legged population)

    Carson, we will have to see. Ive become very reclusive about my collection. Not to sound rude, but if I have anyone over, theres no hiding any of my collection from them.

    Why do you need to hide your collection?

    Bah, none of my nice tanks are small enough to stick in the car. Anyways, this isnt what I wanted to wake up to today a week before my trip across the rockies.

    i knew i should have scrolled down a bit. The show was really good this spring considering how bad it was the past 2 shows. before that it was always amazing. got to help marty a bit and alot of interest in frogs and hopefully he does really good today.

    umm some of my highlights was the surinam horned frog, was debating about picking it up but i amready have 1 horned frog. than some satanic and spear tailed leaf gecko's, not very many chameleons, alot of snakes and leopard gecko's like always (was suprised to see no emeralds or green tree's this time around). J&J reptiles had some darts, they were fresh WC animals and the auratus and the pumilio looked like they haven't been eating. I was tempted to pick up the auratus but they really need alot of help to get back in shape. The pumilio were so small to, almost likely farmed raised and boarder line 3-4 months old. besides that J&J had a blue glider and some cb waxy's. i am not bashing them but riverfront had the same type of auratus (6 point) and they were in the same condition.

    I considered picking up the 2 healthier looking of the pumilio that J&J had, but I rescued some in the same shape once and they all ended up dying.
    Does anyone know what morph they were?
