never had personal experience with them, but have read that they are kinda shy and hide a lot during the day. i think i read about them while researching White's tree frogs. they are definitely cool looking frogs.

hey, something else you might want to check into are waxy monkey frogs. a kid had one at one of the herp meetings a month ago and it was pretty freakin' cool. it was big and it would crawl all over his arms and shirt. pretty cool frog.

Thanks bud. I've heard that the red eye tree frogs were pretty much nocturnal. My kids want a frog and thought about a whites. I might have to check into the frog you mentioned also. Man I'm really liking these frogs though and Amanda is really getting into making vivs also.

So do y'all think waxy monkey frogs are more suitable for children then whites?

The WTF is an established, pet frog with a lot of support in the literature as one of the good pet amphibians.

It would be hard to beat a WTF.

The frog Cameron and I are talking about, was really cool though.

Do your research before you decide.

Will do. We have read a bunch of articles about the whites in reptiles magazine and think they are neat. Problem is I can't find any out here. Go figure eh. They seem to be the one frog that you can actually touch somewhat. My kids like them. Wish they'd be more into pythons lol.

Amanda is very interested in the red eye tree. She really liked the current issue of reptiles and made her want one even more.

Just trying to save some typing.

It seems a lot of herpers like to use initials now instead of the complete name.

If you think herpers are bad about acronyms, spend a day at Tinker. I have no idea what these people are talking about most of the time.

The frog at the meeting was a giant waxy monkey tree frog. The big positive about the waxy frogs Zac is that they, IMO, are much better for kids as they can be held safely as the wax provides a protection layer to retain their moisture inside and prevent some of human contamination from hands etc in entering through their skin. The wax makes em holdable. The giant makes em calmer. They are hard to find as they are difficult, like a lot of frogs, to breed in captivity. So if you find giants available somewhere, let me know too. I've been looking.

I wouldn't recommend buying from anyone at the Tulsa shows. It's well worth the couple of weeks wait for the OKC show. I've never heard anything good about those Tulsa shows, and I know for a fact that someone there was allowed to illegally sell American alligators last year. I've heard other stories, but none are confirmed, so I won't post them here.

I've never bought anything from there. Amanda did get her darts there. She's not real happy with the person she bought them from for other reasons. Although i would probably buy from Lynn and her husband and reptiles by design. Other than that I'm with you Michael.

On a side note. Man tulsa needs a better reptile community like okc has. I am really hopeful with the opening of Jims place.

Me too. I plan on driving up to check it out when he opens. Maybe we can make it an OCHS trip with a herp hunt thrown in.
