Oophaga sylvatica "San Lorenzo"
Oophaga sylvatica "San Lorenzo".
Unknown Filial Generation.
Oophaga sylvatica “San Lorenzo” are found in Columbia. These frogs have brilliant orange coloration with black speckling. These are large obligate egg feeding frogs. These frogs feed their young with infertile eggs after depositing them in bromeliad axils. Large obligates are best kept in pairs in a minimum terrarium size of 24 x 24 / 18 x 36, but appreciate larger enclosures. These frogs can be difficult to breed, so have patience. The females generally lay clutches of 2-10, and tadpoles can take 120 days or more to morph into froglets, but generally take around 90 days. Pairs usually produce 4-6 offspring per year.
