My (WC 2010) breeding male has no left hand and is almost a runt, him and his female constantly (and I mean really CONSTANTLY) have robust healthy froglets coming out of the water:

Just so we all don't end up posting pictures of horribly disfigured frogs and possibly end up giving children nightmares for weeks and potentially scarring them mentally,
my point was not that amputees, cross-eyes, gimps, outcasts , scarred up frogs from either shipping or fighting or dropping and or any other frog that may not be aesthetically wonderful and perfect in every way will not breed. My point, and simple mention made was that a perfectly unscarred frog I traded a guy a few years ago ended up looking as if something beat the holy crap out of it at some point after I had produced it and after it left my hands.
Again, a simple notion.
Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

Ah man, stupid picture didn't post. Let's try this again. This was just a fun, lucky shot that I wanted to share. Wish I was a better photographer! I don't know that my girl is actually "scarred," but another frogger calls her "scarface" on account of the black line running across her right shoulder.

Kate, from the photo I'm not sure those are scars.
Those marks seem to be 'connected' spots. Most scars are caused by abrasion from a number of things and are usually more 'buffs' and not long skinny lines. The scars are also usually grey as opposed to black.
Not to knock your pic, because it is a cool representation of breeding on a lot of levels, but I can't really tell definitively either way. From that photo though I'd lean toward natural pigment coloration than any scarring.

I'm pretty sure you're right Rich. I actually never really gave much thought to whether they were scars, just laughed at her given moniker. This picture from when I first brought her home in 2010 shows it a little better.

Well, that's an interesting mark for sure. The grey is showing now and I'd say if it is a scar it was from a decent injury, being a cut or tear , not a buff abrasion.
Either way, as has been testified here , I don't think it'll effect breeding or life-span.

Here's a recently acquired UE Tarapoto. I tried to get a picture showing the yellow, orange, and blue-green on the frog:

They were suprisingly cooperative today, they even let me take pictures with the doors open while feeding.
