Dendrobates auratus "Hawaiian" Tadpole
Dendrobates auratus "Hawaiian”.
Unknown filial generation.
Dendrobates auratus "Hawaiian” are from Oahu, Hawaii, but originated from an import from Tobaga Island, Panama in 1932. 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.
