My first reptile/amphibian show. I went planning on buying a Blue Pahse Tree Frog, but that didn't happen. Like only 10% was even frogs... it was mainly Poison Darts too. After an hour of looking around I found this guy with some. I was SO excited!! I picked em up and they were pure dark brown. Now I know they change, but these critters were like almost black.. they were fat and jumpy though. I asked about them and he said they had Blue Phase in their bloodline, but it might not show up until they are much older.(they were probably 1in big) And he said they might not even turn blue, just stay like that. Is this true? Because I never heard of it and he was selling them for $30 and basically saying I have a 50% chance and he was strange... so I didn't get one. It was so dissappointing =( This other guy had plain Whites, big and fat, $15. And this petstore guy came over and bought 'em all. I fell in love with a baby Veiled Chameleon and got that. He was only $20. My boyfriend was planning on getting a Pac Man, but liked the Red Eyes. This was the first time he ever saw 'em and he loved em, thery are also my fav. They are babys and were only $15 a piece! He offered $25 for 2 and he took it. So, it was fun... Spent around $150 though... =P

Good girl, FrogLuv!!! You didn't believe the hype and waste money on a frog that wasnt what you wanted. Whites do not turn blue over time, they start out that way from froglets. That is a prime example of a seller that just wants to make a sale. Never fall for that line, it's just not true! Congrats on the baby veiled, and if you need any help with it, many people here keep them as well. I'm sure you know some aspect of their care...at least I hope so. But I just wanted to pipe in and tell you that even though you went home sans Whites, you made a good choice!


<-- Say, can I have some of your purple berries? <--

Thanks Whitney, I was so confused that day, *lol* I thought that wasn't true, but I just wasn't sure. They actually just looked like the reg Whites all stressed out. And he had this poster of these very very pretty blue ones and was saying that's what they would look like if it happpened. And yes I know about Veileds, it's my first though, so I'm still researching like crazy to make sure I make no mistakes. =)

I was gonna go to the show, but I am sick right now, so I think I'll have to wait till the next one. Going to get some red eyes, hopefully.


Even if you think you have nothing worth stealing.....someone will come along and steal your tail.

Yeah, a lot of the people at shows try to hype up their stuff and sell it to unsuspecting passers-by. You really have to be careful when shopping at a show! Some of those herps have been cooped up in a deli container for a few weeks... it's always buyer beware.
