Oophaga pumilio "Almirante".

Line: Strictly Reptiles.

Unknown Filial Generation.

Oophaga pumilio "Almirante" is a small poison dart frog with beautiful, bronze to red coloration, most are a reddish color with blue-black legs, bronze frog in picture is an exceptional specimen, a few of our males available are this color. Due to the difference in color please contact us before ordering this frog, as 90% of ours are red. They are found near the city of Almirante, but there is also an older line that are found nowhere near Almirante, and rather off the road leading to Chirique Grande. They do fine in small groups, but do best as a pair or trio when sexual maturity is reached. The males often have control of 1 to 5 square meters of territory in the wild, so rival males may display aggression for supremacy. They usually lay 3 to 10 eggs on glossy leaves, on glass, or sometimes in leaf litter. Tadpoles must be raised by adults because they feed on infertile eggs from the female. These dart frogs are interesting to many hobbyists because they exhibit biparental care. No more than a trio should go in a 20 gallon vertical conversion tank or a 18 x 24 Exo-terra enclosure. Additional information can be found, of course, through our complimentary Encyclopedia Database: DendroKnow Project.
