We have about 10 azureus and 1 leuc available, with alot more coming out of the water the next couple months!
All of our breeding pairs are housed in 20, 30, or 40 gallon vivariums, with live plants, and no water feature. We use a solid glass top to keep humidity up, and mist twice a day while they are breeding. We do use water features in a few other tanks that are used as grow-outs, and in the 40 gallon breeder that houses our green/bronze auratus group. We house froglets in 120 oz clear containers for the first month, then transfer them to larger grow-out tanks. We don't ship frogs until they are at least 2 months of age. If you have questions about terrariums, please email and we will be happy to help you!

Dendrobates Auratus (Panama) Blue and
(pics above are of 2 of the froglets produced in 2010)
Like all species of D. auratus, these are great beginner frogs. They have a reputation for being more shy than other forms of auratus, but ours seem to be no different than our green and bronze. That being said, they are definitely more shy than D. tinctorius or D. leucomelas, but can be seen often in a well planted tank. We find that they are more visible if kept in a group. Our sexed pair is quite secretive during breeding, but the juveniles, which are kept in a large tank with a water feature and many plants, are regularly out and about.
Availability: None available. (these are no longer in our collection)
Dendrobates auratus (Panama) Green and
We have 6 green/bronze auratus in a 40 gallon tank. They are 5 years old. They make great display animals, but have never laid any eggs. These are also great frogs for beginners or experienced keepers. We added 2 females to the group in the summer of 2012. We hope to get them breeding this spring!
Availability: None available for sale. These have never bred for us!
Dendrobates leucomelas (Venezuela)
(female leuc is pictured above)
Line: Females: unkown, male: Nabors
We acquired a breeding pair (supposedly) of the bumblebee poison dart frog in late October (2010). After 6 months of no action, we added another male to the group on April 23, 2011. I think the original "pair" we had were actually both females. These are spectacular frogs, great for beginners or experienced keepers. They are not shy, and will stay in plain view even if you are watching them, or opening the lid to dump in flies.
Availability: 1 available
Price: $25 each
Dendrobates Tinctorius Azureus (Surinam)
(pictured is one of our pairs.......male is on the right, female on the left)
Line: We have frogs that originated from Patrick Nabors
These spectacular frogs are a must have for any dart frog fanatic! They are bold, bright, and blue.
Availability: 10 available
Price: $25 each
Dendrobates Tinctorius "Matecho"
We acquired a stunning pair of D. tinctorius "matecho" in the fall of 2011. The male is pictured above. They have been rather frustrating to breed, as they probably laid over 100 eggs in 2012, and not one was viable. Lately we seem to have gotten this figured out, and we will have several froglets available this fall.
Availability: None Currently available
Price: $35 each, purchase more than 4 and they are $30 each
