D. auratus “Blue and Bronze”

I have recently obtained a group of these frogs, and they are looking very nice. The parents are blue and bronze, and the parents of those frogs are normal green and bronze. From what I have been told they are about like the normal green and bronze form in terms of behavior and shyness.

Hopefully these will be available by late in 2006.




Terrarium Preferences
Upper seventies to low eighties High

Terrestrial frogs, but will climb.

Visibility in the tank
Groups of these compatible
Up to about 1.75 inches Probably shyer than the Costa Ricans, but not as shy as many auratus forms.

Yes, do well in groups as long as they are not overcrowded. Keep up to three to a ten gallon, four to a twenty tall or six to a forty gallon tank.

Experience Level
Compatible with other species?


Yes, should be ok with other species if not crowded

Breeding :
Status in Hobby
While best results will probably be achieved in pairs, this frog often can be bred very well in groups. Using a group setting to sex them is also helpful. Set up a group, and allow them to pair off with each other. Separate pairs if desired, or if breeding is not successful.

Rare, and apparently not many bloodlines of this frog, although I am aware of a couple of others at least.
