Epipedobates tricolor "Rio" Tadpole
Epipedobates tricolor "Rio".
Line: WIKIRI 2015.
Epipedobates tricolor "Rio" hail from Ecuador in the western foothills of Cotopaxi and Bolivar provinces. These frogs are great in groups and have a pleasant, trilling call. They are very active and bold frogs, making them great for first time owners. Females can sometimes eat opposing female's eggs, and males will establish a hierarchy, so give them plenty of room if you are planning on getting a group. Their natural breeding area in situ is by streams, so water features in the enclosure is a plus. Females will usually lay 10 to 20 eggs on glossy leaves or in film canisters. Males can transport 10+ tadpoles at a time! Please let us know if you have any questions.
