The Golden Mantella is a small endangered species of amphibian from the island of Madagascar, they are threatened by habitat destruction and collection for the pet trade; however this is becoming less of a threat due to more and more being captive bred, just like ours. They are yellow to red in colour and grow to a maximum size of 3cm. The bright colouration of this species is an example of aposematism - the colouration deters predators from eating the poisonous frogs. This is very similar to the Poison Dart Frogs of South America. They are a very attractive bold species that is out and about during the day. This species does best kept in a live planted naturalistic setup and makes a great display animal. They feed upon small live insects such as fruit flies, bean weevils and very small crickets.
