Natural habitat and Range: They inhabit the tropical rainforests of the east side of French Guiana, near a town called Regina.

Temperature: Their natural temperature range is between 70-77 degrees Fahrenheit.

Humidity: They prefer an ambient humidity of 80% or higher.

Size: A large frog, about 2 inches in length. They are larger than the Regina and have less yellow coloration than the Regina.

Temperament and Experience: They are bold and hardy, great for beginning owners. They are more delicate than other tincs.

Terrarium Setup: Provide 10 gallons of space per frog. These are large frogs and should be housed in pairs of 1 male and 1 female. Buying sexed pairs may be more expensive immediately but the long term cost of losing frogs because of competition among cage mates is greater. They are mainly a terrestrial species, but they can also be somewhat arboreal.

Breeding: Hut breeders. Males have wide finger discs. It takes 1 to 2 ½ years for them to reach sexual maturity. They will lay eggs every 5-10 days. They often lay large clutches of 6-15 eggs. Tadpoles will emerge from their eggs in 10-18 days. Metamorphosis takes 2-3 months. They can hybridize with other Dendrobates species, so be careful of other cage mates.
