The blessed dart frog (Ranitomeya benedicta) is a small, mainly tree-dwelling frog from the Amazonian part of Peru and neighboring countries. This particular species was only described to science in 2008. In Peru, this frog is found in the warm rain forest of the Pampas del Sacramento, hence the choice of the frog’s species name, benedicta. Sacramento means sacred in Latin, and benedicta means blessed. Like its close relative, the imitating dart frog (R. imitator), it is small (less than an inch, not including the legs) and equipped with adhesive toe tips for climbing in the trees, where individuals spend most of their time. These animals are classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN red list.
The animals offered are the Shucushuyacu form; a great addition to any dart frog enthusiasts collection.
