img_1797

Endemic to Panama, this species can be shy. The background color changes from black as a froglet to bronze as an adult. Pattern colors range from blue to turquoise and green. A 10-20 gallon/18x18x18 tank can house 1-2 adults, with 5-10 gallons for each additional frog. This species is mainly terrestrial and while they will do a bit of climbing, they prefer more horizontal space than vertical space. Adults measure about 1.25″-1.5″. They prefer smaller prey such as Drosophila melanogaster and hydei fruit flies. High humidity is required (70-90%), and the ideal temperature to keep these frogs is in the low 70s (72-75 F).

A 10-20 gallon/18x18x18 tank can house 1-2 adults, with 5-10 gallons for each additional frog. This species is mainly terrestrial but are  happy to climb as well. They do well in groups. Adults measure about 1.25″-1.5″. They prefer smaller prey such as Drosophila melanogaster and hydei fruit flies. High humidity is required (70-90%), and the ideal temperature to keep these frogs is in the low to mid 70s (72-75 F).

844EC086-8133-4260-91B5-14A8E1DF7C42

This frog is found in southern Suriname. They are extremely bold, some so much so that they’ll take food right out of your hand! Despite their large size, they have a very quiet call. Reaching sizes of 2-2.5″ as adults, they are among the largest dart frogs and require a spacious enclosure. A minimum of 20 gallons/24x18x18 per 1-2 frogs is recommended. Ideally they are kept in pairs as adults as mature frogs are prone to fighting. They prefer smaller prey such as Drosophila melanogaster/hydei fruit flies. High humidity is required (70-90%), and the ideal temperature to keep these frogs is in the low to mid 70s (72-75 F).


Oophaga pumilio “Blue Jeans” Nicaragua
Strawberry Poison Frog

F1 Froglets $75/each – SOLD OUT, FROGLETS GROWING contact us to get on the waiting list

IMG_2900

These little frogs are found in the lowlands of South America, from Nicaragua to Costa Rica. Best kept in pairs or trios as adults, these frogs are interesting in that they raise their own young. They deposit their tadpoles in small bodies of water, such as the axils of bromeliads, and feed them unfertilized eggs laid by the female. It very important that they are supplemented appropriately to have the necessary reserves to feed their offspring. We supplement with Calcium plus at every feeding,  and microfauna they feed off of in the tank are supplemented by a calcium bearing clay substrate. Some keepers also provide UVB light. These are relatively bold frogs, and their striking colors stand out in the vivarium. Their call is VERY loud and persistent. If you want your home to sound like the rainforest, these are the frogs for you! I recommend a minimum of 20G/18x18x24″, vertically oriented enclosure with a calcium bearing clay substrate combination. Our breeding pair is from the 2018 Nicaragua import via the Frog Whisperer. All froglets offered are F1 offspring.

img_0048

These frogs are found on the coasts and islands of Panama. Slightly larger than the thumbnail species, they are outrageously bold for their size, on par with the boldness of tincs and terribilis. Their call is loud and persistent. Best kept in pairs, these frogs will raise their own young, depositing tadpoles in small bodies of water and feeding them unfertilized eggs. It is very important that they are supplemented appropriately to have the necessary reserves to feed their offspring. We supplement with Calcium plus at every feeding,  and microfauna they feed off of in the tank are supplemented by a calcium bearing clay substrate. Some keepers also provide UVB light. I recommend a minimum of 20G/18x18x24″, vertically oriented enclosure with a calcium bearing clay substrate combination. Our frogs are Strictly line, Cemetery locale.


Phyllobates terribilis “mint”
Golden Poison Frog

Froglets $50/each SOLD OUT, FROGLETS GROWING

C2DAFC8A-BCC7-4DC0-8F56-94BA8E5418BD

Phyllobates terribilis, found in Colombia, are the most poisonous species of dart frog in existence. The poison from one adult frog is potent enough to kill several adult humans. However, in captivity, these frogs are completely harmless. These frogs are extremely bold, have a loud call, and do great in groups. Though they are a relatively inactive frog, they are very large and require a good amount of space. A minimum of 20 gallons/18-24x18x18 is needed for 1-2 adults frogs, with 5-10 gallons per additional frog. As with all dart frogs, high humidity (70-90%) and low temperatures (72-75F) are required. Unlike most other dart frogs, special consideration should be taken to ensure that their tank is not wet. Terribilis are prone to foot rot if kept in conditions that are too wet. A terribilis tank should be humid, but the top layer of ground cover should dry quickly after misting and remain dry. It is very important that they have dry ground to stand on. Terribilis can eat impressively large prey items, including crickets and even waxworms. However, these should only be offered occasionally, if at all, and in small amounts. I prefer to just feed mine hydeii fruit flies.


Dendrobates auratus “Pena Blanca”

Pena Blanca Poison Dart Frog

Froglets $70/each

Pena Blanca auratus are from Guatemala. These frogs are interesting in that they go through a striking color change from froglet to adult. They start out as blue and black. As they age, the blue turns to black, and the black turns to white. If you’re lucky, they may retain some of the blue tint! These frogs are often shy, but can become more bold with time. A minimum of 10 gallons/ 18x18x18 is require for 1-2 frogs, with 5-10 gallons per additional frog. These can be kept happily in groups. High humidity (70-90%) and low temperatures (72-75F) are required. They prefer small prey, such as melanogaster fruit flies.
