    Default Ranitomeya vanzolini

    This species has always been on my wish list so Im really excited now I have a trio which I got off a UK breeder at the weekend.

    Absolutely gorgeous thumbnail species - still settling in so just took a couple of very quick picrures.
    Hope you like them!

    They're definitely in my top 5 favorite frogs, so jealous! Out of curiosity how easy are they to spot in the tank?

    Theyve not long gone in so settling in really - when they are out and about they are pretty easy to spot.
    All 3 were in the leaf litter on the viv floor earlier hunting springtails

    That works for me. They're essentially imitators so I'm sure they'll be bold, I was just worried if I chose them I would never be able to see them even if they were out.

    Well I heard some calling from these guys and thought something was afoot. Was topping up film canisters when I saw movement and here is what I found:



    You can really see the yellow chromatophores forming.

    Also found these in another film cannister:

    Just thought I'd post an update on the tad I'm raising out the viv (parents are raising some in situ). He's just popped his last front limb and you can really see the mottling on the limbs and the yellow spots developing on his back:
