Oophaga pumilio "Rambala" is a small poison dart frog that inhabits Rambala, Panama, just North of the Bocas del Toro region. These Oophaga greatly vary in phenotypic appearance, but most recent imports show a yellow coloration. "Guarumo" that were imported in 2008 look very similar to these "Rambala" and the "Rambala" in the book: The Complete Oophaga pumilio are an orange coloration - which is not represented in our hobby. 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.
