    I hate you Sheridan, I really do. Here is hoping they are males and that they bark all night and keep you and yours awake.

    I need to talk to my frog guys here and see when they are going back to the Netherlands and if they can get me some CB M. montanas... I will have them yet!!

But for some reason a lot of pet stores label C. cranwelli as C. ornata. Not sure why, maybe they think the name is cooler. Of the Ceratophrys I prefer ornata to cranwelli but that may be because my first one was an ornata and he got to be a rat eater If I could, my next Ceratophrys would be a cornuta but they are hard to get hold of as CB and WC almost always fail since in habitat they only eat other frogs and so won't transition over to insects

    I spent about 5 months reading about them about two years ago. I was at the point where almost got one, but then I lost interest. LOL. I'm fascinated by how they gulp down pinkies or snatch mice like a vacuum cleaner. Here's a picture of a beautiful one:

    It's labeled as Ceratophrys cornuta x cranwelii ebinuma(?). (Note the plain green "stripe" down its back).

    ... Lol is it a green stripe or 2 brown stripes? I guess it's like "Is a zebra black with white striped or white with black stripes?"

    I used to have one when I was like.. 10 and I fed it Vienna sausages lmao

    Hey Joosa,

    Yeah the "Fantasy Frog" despite many people thinking they look good (I still like the cornuta better) I really do not like them because to get them you have to crank both the male and female with synth hormones to force them to breed with one another. Seriously unnatural and cruel (and I am not a PETA freak)

    @ JLAP,

    According to scientific findings zebras are black with white stripes. Now you know

    Yes, I remeber a breeder on the Kingsnake forum warning me not to purchase hybrids of any kind due to the reason you mentioned above. Luckily, hybrids were not THAT common a couple years ago around my local pet shops and herp breeders (or at least the ones I spoke with). I don't know about today...
    Anyway, thet're a beautiful frog. What's not to love about them?
