F1 from WC parents.
Oophaga typographica "Blue Jeans" is a small poison dart frog that inhabits the premontane slopes in Nicaragua through Costa Rican lowlands up to 900 m and into northwestern Panama. 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.
