D. galactonotus “Orange”

There are a few different variants of orange galactonotus, which are typically described by the amount of orange, such as 70% orange, or 90% orange. The form we are working with is probably the 90% orange, they typically are almost solid orange above, although there are some specimens which show quite a bit of black on the legs. All of them are black on the underside.

This form of galactonotus is the easiest to breed that we work with, and one of the boldest. While not as bold as the tinctorius or azureus, they are pretty bold, and do very well in groups.

We are working with two separate bloodlines of these frogs, but often only have one or the other available.
