Dendrobates tinctorius originate from Guyana Surinam and Brazil, they are one of the largest dart frog species reaching 5cm as adults. Due to the large area they occur over in the wild there are many different colour/ pattern forms such as ‘Cobalt’, ‘Alanis’, ‘Matecho’ they all vary slightly but it takes a trained eye to tell them apart. Often regarded as being a good introductory species due to their large size and bold nature they thrive when housed in live planted naturalistic enclosures.
