Line: Import 2019.
Oophaga pumilio "Boca Colubre" is a small poison dart frog that inhabits Panama. They have boldly colored red and black bodies with almost metallic blue colored legs. 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.
