    Wow, that is the most beautiful frog i've ever seen! Thanks for sharing, and nice pics!

    I was wondering, are Poison Dart frogs collected from the wild, or are they bred in captivity? If the latter, i might have to get me some, too. If it is possible to get a pair and have them breed, that would be really neat.

    They are captive bred. From what I have hear the azureus are very easy to bred if you have a good setup you should not have to do a thing. They seem to be very good parents the dad will carry the tadpoles form a bromeliad to water.

    I should have tadpoles in 6 months.

    Those are great Jeremiah! I've wanted to have dart frogs for some time but always hold back because they seem to be quite a commitment. I'm waiting til the time is right ... and I'm ready. They're so beautiful... like little jewels!
    How do you care for yours? Do you keep them with your cp's?

    Hmm... in my research, it seemed like they had very specific requirements for humidity and temperature. Plants can be forgiving, but I didn't think the frogs would be. Now I'm excited and want to try again!
    Do you keep them in the same terrarium with any of your cp's?

    Jeremiah:
    Have you touched the frog yet? If they are poisonous you would have known by now. The poison I believe is in their skin. Plus, I thought bright colored frogs were dangerous [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] . Well, you can at least type so you must be doing ok k/d lol.

    Travis:

    Poison dart frogs, along with many other toxic animals, get their poison from the diet they keep in the rainforest. When kept in captivity, they aren't as poisonous, if poisonous at all. It's probably just as well... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]
