Line: Tropical Jewels x Unknown
Dendrobates Auratus or Green and Black dart frog, are a classic dart frog species. They range throughout much of southern Central America, from Nicaragua to north western Columbia. These particular frogs are from Nicaragua. Auratus are an average sized member of the Tinctorious family. They are unique in that they can be kept in small groups throughout their entire life. At around 10 months of age they reach sexual maturity and will begin to breed freely. Their assortment of stunning color combinations, their ease in care, and overall general hardiness make them a very appealing dart frog species. Some morphs seem to be more shy than others, but these Costa Rican Green and Blacks are commonly seen hopping around the open areas of their enclosure and climbing up the front glass. A great dart frog for beginners.
