Dendrobates auratus "Green and Bronze" Tadpole
Dendrobates auratus "Green and Bronze”.
Unknown filial generation.
Dendrobates auratus "Green and Bronze" hail from Panama. These frogs were brought in during the early 2000s and selected by color; their true locale is not known (farm raised). These frogs have beautiful turquoise bodies, with a metallic bronze reticulation. This frog is moderately shy, and does well in groups. They get bolder with age and exposure, like others of their species. There will be some aggression and wrestling between females, while males do not tend to partake in fighting often. Despite this, you can keep a decently large group of frogs together, even as adults, provided that there are plenty of hiding places and food available. Females will generally lay 4 to 10 eggs under leaf litter or a coconut hut with flat leaves or a petri dish underneath. They will then transport tadpoles to a body of water, like tinctorius. However, you may pull the eggs and raise them yourself. If left alone, the tadpoles will cannibalize. Please let us know if you have any questions.
