Bumblebee poison dart frog
Dartfrog-produced c/b 2016 juveniles 20 - 25mm
The much rarer greenish form (with blue/green feet) of Dendrobates leucomelas hails from Cerro Autana which is a remote table mountain located in the jungles of Venezuela. Seems to do well in a very humid vivarium, generally not too warm (around 74 F during the day) but then increase to around 85 - 88 F for several weeks to encourage breeding. Otherwise care is similar to the nominat form. These are unsexed but healthy juveniles and we can offer unrelated juveniles.
