Line: Understory Enterprises
Ranitomeya fantastica "Varadero" is a semi-terrestrial species that inhabits the lowlands near Yurimaguas into the slopes in Peru. They do decently in groups, but males can get aggressive. R. fantastica usually lay 3 to 6 eggs in leaf litter, horizontal film canisters, or bromeliads. Tadpoles can be pulled or left to be raised by adults, but may cannibalize if left with other tadpoles in proximity with less-than-adequate food. Egg eating may occur from rival females, and wrestling will often occur between same-sex frogs. No more than a pair should go in a 10 gallon tank or a 12 x 12 x 18 ExoTerra tank, but we recommend larger enclosures due to their speed. Please contact us with further questions.
