    Default Dendrobates tinctorius "Citronella"

    Here is one of my Citronella dart frogs, bred by Lisa Chesney (nx2ured on frogforum). He's about 3.5 months out of the water in this photo but well over an inch (>2.5 cm). I think it may be a male - the front toe pads are already showing a big size difference when compared to his sibling:



    And here's a "baby" photo from when he metamorphosed - you can still see a little nub of his tadpole tail:



    You can see more photos of him in FrogForum.net - John's Album: Citronella Dart Frogs .

    Hi John

    Has yours grown rapidly since metamorphosis? I have some D.Tincs but mine are still tiny and it's been about 2.5 months!

    They eat plenty and are active ... maybe I am keeping them too cold?


    Thanks

    Steve

    My oldest two (metamorphosed about November 10th) are about 3 cm now, really.

    Oh, I should mention that obviously the size depends on the tinc race - Cits are arguably the biggest of the tinctorius, so it may make sense that they can grow this fast.

    In the low 70s (probably between 21 and 24 degrees C).
