Kinda sucks, doesn't it, Phil? I can't be the only one here who would rather have c/b frogs than w/c. I'd rather let the w/c stay where they belong. Of course, that would mean that there would be no pdf hobby, right? As it is now, there must be more than a couple of lineages of the different frogs in the hobby to keep line-breeding to a minimum. And here's a question for those who breed and sell thumbs - are y'all keeping any particular size of frog when you pair them up? I'm sure you wouldn't want to breed your thumbs into palms, so that makes me think that if there is a size variance in the smaller frogs, then the smallest frogs are kept for breeding.
Egads, here I go again, stirring up controversy, and I just know y'all were hoping that I had curled up and died somewhere
