Ok, now I just found out that someone I'm looking to buy off of has some mints available (very rare in canada). Need a little help in deciding if I get them or tincs (cobalt). The price difference is 25$, but that doesn't really bother me too much. (its my gift to me for finally finishing all my courses!) yay

Mints = hands down!!!! There is not even a contest as to which I would chose. The Mint terribilis are the coolest darts I have ever owned. Keep us posted as to what you chose!

If price doesn't bother you, go with the terribilis.

Daystorm.. I have both mints and cobalts.. and have had them for a long time. Both are great frogs, Mints are my absolute favorite dart though. The biggest differences you will find - Mints do well in groups, cobalts sometimes don't. Mints will eat about anything, sometimes cobalts get picky. Mints take almost 2 years to sexually mature, cobalts will breed at around 12-14 months. Cobalts call is pretty soft, almost have to stick your head in the tank to hear it, but a mint is loud (almost sounds like it is laughing at you).

lol well who can resist a frog that laughs? It's almost as good as my guard frogs (wtf) who call when you talk at night. (course, they haven't been calling alot lately, the weather has been really weird) I'm going with the mints. He mentioned that I could put them both together, but I think its best for me to stick with one type, no worries about the crickets eating the cobalts or the cobalts getting agressive. Tank is not big enough anyways. I would get a few mints.. but geez.. 100$ a frog (and these are the only ones I know of in ontario, so I can't "shop around") I may get three though, tax season is upon us after all. *nod* but I don't think I'll get more than three.

lol I know I know, but hey, I think its worth it! Not like I don't have the money really. No worse than paying 75 or 80$ a frog. The difference really is about 75$ for three mints compared to three cobalts.

Daystorm - you won't regret it!

On a good note, The laws about exporting/importing amphibs and reptiles between US and Canada are being modified.. I think very soon many species will be allowed to be shipped without any extra paper work/permits.. keep your fingers crossed.
