Green and Black Dart Poison Frog (Dendrobates auratus) is a poison dart frog from the family Dendrobatidae. They are native to Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama. They were introduced in Hawaii in the 1930’s to help control mosquito population.
Females reach sizes of 1.65 inches long while males are smaller. There are variations in the color from white, green, and blue. The frogs are active during the day, feeding on insects. They are great climbers, climbing up to almost 50 yards high. During breeding season, females wrestle other females and chase them out of their territory. The males visit the nest of eggs to provide water, get rid of fungus, and to rotate the eggs.
