Phyllobates terribilis "Orange" Tadpole
Phyllobates terribilis "Orange"
Phyllobates terribilis "Orange" are found in Columbia in the foothills of the Andes. These frogs are very bold when adults and can do moderately well in groups, provided that the enclosure is large enough. It is recommended that no more than 2 go into a 10 gallon tank, 3 in a 20 gallon tank, and 4-5 in a 40 gallon tank. There can be some aggression and wrestling, but it is usually minor. Females will generally lay 5 to 15 eggs under leaf litter or a coconut hut with flat leaves or a petri dish underneath. The frogs will transport tadpoles if left alone.
