WTM, why don't you link your pix so that they display HERE on the forum?!? I can't be bothered to have to go to another website's page and I expect others agree.

Looks to me like you're just trying to increase hits on your own website :whistle: :wink:

Hey arks, thanks for your lovely comment. I share a reference to a frog here for those who are interested in it. Use it, don't use it. All the same to me really.

I don't even have a hit counter on my website. Really one of the last things I am concerned about. :wink:

But yes, I am making changes to the site all the time and in due time I will link images up here for you and the others you expect to agree with you.

Just my opinion, WTM (I think that the whole point of a forum is to share information, pix, etc ON the forum), thanks for explaining why.

Arks, you know what? I really don't have to post these topics here and endure the flack I get in doing so. Who exactly are you to tell me how I should be doing things?

I actually feel like removing each and every one right this very minute, but knowing how tough it is to id these frogs, I will keep it here for the ones who would benefit from it.

However no further new topics will be added by yours truly here on SANP anymore. For those who are interested in further photos of other species I come across, you know where to go look them up now. :wink:

Cheers
