Dendrobates leucomelas "Banded".
Line: SDNF Import 2007.
Unknown filial generation number from unrelated parents.
Dendrobates leucomelas "Banded" is found in British Guyana. This frog has a banded pattern, instead of the typical spotting. This frog is very social, moderately bold, and does moderately well in groups. 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, but can lay larger clutches. Males will then usually 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.
