These leaves are most often between 3" - 9" long, and are brown / bronze in color when fully dried, but can range in color and size. These leaves sport white backs, hence the name. Only dried, brown leaves will be shipped. If you would like fresh, green leaves, please contact us for availability.
Leaf litter is useful for dart frogs for hiding, preventing stress, and even egg-laying sites. Swamp White oak leaves are thinner than most commercially available leaf litter, and decay quickly in a vivarium. The habitat that dart frogs are naturally found in contains a deep layer of leaf litter, so it is important to mimic this inside a vivarium for more naturalistic behavior!
FrogDaddy leaf grades:
B - Leaves with imperfections, breaks, and minor debris. Thick cuticle leaves are still cleaned and sterilized. Thin cuticle leaves are sorted but contain higher amounts of debris than A - grade.
C - Leaves with some breaks and tears. Some have many imperfections. Thick cuticle leaves are not cleaned or sterilized; they are simply sorted. Thin cuticle leaves may be dirty, and are sorted but done so quickly and may contain large amounts of debris.
