You can pick up anytime in Murphy, NC. I work from home. Bring some sort of carrier for them with you.
I ship via USPS 2-3 day Priority Mail or USPS 1-2 days Priority Express Mail. These are a lot cheaper options than overnight with FedEx or UPS. In the 100's of frogs I've shipped the last few years, I've only lost one froglet in transit: the box was pretty beaten up and took a little longer than expected to the west coast.
They are packed in live wet moss from my property. Shipping is only done once a week on Mondays or Tuesdays. This way, if there is a delay, it will be long before the weekend. I've had one package get delayed and it took six days, but they were all thriving when they arrived.
Post office pick-up is a much safer option if you will not be home for the delivery. These guys should not be in a mailbox or left on a porch. The post office is climate controlled.
Froglets are $35 each, plus sipping. On the east coast, Priority Mail is about $25, and Priority Express is about $50-65 on the east coast. West Coast is higher, and I'll need your address to check prices. Zelle, Venmo, checks, and cash are acceptable. I know it's hard to trust random people on the internet; google me, search my Facebook page, and you'll see I am a well-respected licensed Real Estate Professional. I'm not looking to scam people, just looking to fund my pet projects.
I have 7 adults, 5 females and 2 males. All are brightly colored. 2 bright lime green, 1 minty blue and the rest are a dark teal color. I got them from Carolina Biological Supply 2 yrs ago after being on a waiting list for a year. They started laying eggs the very next day. I rehomed about 200 babies the first year, and more than half were shipped. Last year we moved to a much colder climate (from FL to NC) and I kept a heat lamp on-they did not breed so well, and I didn't sell the few that grew up. Taking care of all these babies is a lot of work, and I was just too busy last year, so nature took its course.
You should have your tank set up and fruit fly culture before pick up/shipping. There have been shortages in the past. I can tell you from experience It's not fun trying to go outside hunting for tiny bugs just to feed your babies. This year I started making my own cultures, it's really easy.
I am not an expert or a professional breeder. I'm just a hobbyist that just got lucky, really. I've had fire bellies on and off for 30 yrs, but they never bred before, I must be doing something right. I know how hard these are to find these days with the ban on imports the last few years - So welcome to my side hustle. I've have owned many types of frogs and toads over the years, these are still my favorite. I love that they are active during the day, they sit right next to my desk, so I get to watch them all day. This year I am venturing into breeding feeder bugs (wish me luck).
