Major amphibian categories?

MorphMarket.com is adding a top level amphibians category. What subcategories are the major ones we need to have?

For comparison, this will be similar to our “other” areas:
https://www.morphmarket.com/us/c/reptiles/lizards/other-geckos/index

Should we break it out as fine grained as we did for turtles and tortoises (which haven’t really taken off yet to be populated), or should we stick with 5-15 major subcategories?

I think something like this might work:

Salamanders
Newts
Axolotls
Tree frogs
Dart frogs
Other Frogs
Toads
Other amphibians

Keep it simple-
Tree frog
Pyxie/horned/bullfrogs
Other frogs
Other amphibians

The vast majority or amphibians will fall into one of those categories

Axolotl and newts are pretty common in the pet trade, I would have them separate from other amphibians with a salamanders / newts category

Maybe 2-5 for popular frog species, one for axolotls, one for other frogs, one for other salamanders, and then other amphibians? I am happy to see they are adding this. For some reason I thought they had an amphibian section already and just set up a seller account to add an axolotl…only to find no amphibian section. This will be a nice addition!

This is so exciting. I have been wanting this section for an age! The dart frog community really needs this resource for frog shopping! Some frogs seem impossible to find. So often we rely on word of mouth to direct us to someone with a particular frog…and then you just have to get lucky that they have something available. This is going to be a priceless tool!! I am so excited to both shop and sell.

When do you think it will be up and running?

My take:
Dart Frogs
Tree Frogs
Pixie/Horned/Pacman
Other Frogs
Toads
Other Amphibians

Based on what I’ve seen on other sites, I don’t think there will be enough newt/salamander/axolotl ads to justify seperate categories for each of them.

Just curious to know if there has been any further development on the Amphibians category for the site? Amphibian vendors are in desperate need of a consolidated place to sell their animals.

@cordyceps, No update yet. This is blocked in the same place as Inverts category:

idk what u mean but we want a section for frogs, toads, newts, salamanders, all the major categories then another section for invertebrates

right?! and a place for us to buy

yessss this would be awesome

@critterscreatures This looks excellent! The only thing I could add is it would be very beneficial if there was a breakdown of each category further for some way to classify each species. (Example: Toads category breaks down into American Toads, Fowler’s Toads, Cane Toads, etc…)

Is this still going to happen by any chance? :blush:

Yes! But we are still having to focus on other areas of the site – upgrades and performance – at the moment.
