Ranitomeya Ventrimaculata 'grey leg' (juvenile)
Age: 3+ months
Line: Understory Enterprises
Ranitomeya Ventrimaculata Grey Leg, or Amazonian Poison Frog, come from French Guiana. They are one of the most easily kept thumbnail species and breed readily laying clutches of 5-12 eggs just under the water line in a bromeliad or film canister. They startle quickly so are considered to be somewhat of a shy species, but they are best seen early mornings or before dusk. They are arboreal by nature so the more hiding spots and vertical space they have the more they will venture out into the open areas of the enclosure. They do best in small groups and have film canister pool parties regularly. Ventrimaculata are a hardy, easy to keep species and make a great starter thumbnail species for anyone looking to expand their collection.
