New retic group

Postby rcteem » Thu Jul 28, 2011 10:46 am

I worked out a trade so I could get a new retic group with another member in the hobby. Here they are:

The group is 4 retics...Now before I show everyone this 4th frog hear me out. In no way do I plan on line breeding this frog or ever keep it in a group with another one like it. I do not view this as line breeding and can not see the need to cull it either. I understand that if it was in the wild it would not live. However, this frog wasn't born in the wild so I see no reason not to care for it just because its an "odd ball" dart frog.

Nice looking group Chris, Lots of albino in that last one. If it survives long term will be a great photography subject.

How are those considered albino when a true albino has no color period? It is a cool looking frog though...Congrats on the new group.....Those will be my next frog.

Not sure but it does have the red eye...maybe albinos still contain red pigments?

You're thinking of a leucistic, albinos are only lacking melanin.

Is there a difference between albino and 'white foot'?

Heres my white foot, you can see the albino characteristics, with a flash you even see the pink in the eyes
