12- Green and Bronze :
Lets see this amazing and to be reconized by you that it is not a nor,al green and black it is bronze and green !
What a gorgeous frog! This is one dart frog that can look different from one day to the next, and one year to the next. The “bronze” color is variable from one frog to another, and changes as the frog ages in many cases. In the most spectacular specimens, the effect can be of a green frog with large whitish markings.
Most of the frogs in the hobby are the offspring of several thousand rough and ragged wild caught frogs that came into the US during 2005 through 2007 or so. The few (percentage wise) survivors of these importations have produced many babies, and made this frog fairly easy to come by.
However prior to this, they were a very rare form, that was only available through importing specimens from Europe. Its unclear if the frogs which were being brought in from Europe in the past were the same locality as those in this country now, but it seems that they probably are not the same.
Locality : Panama
Synonyms: Bronze auratus
Temps: Upper seventies to low eighties
Humidity : High
Terrarium Preferences :Terrestrial frogs, but will climb.
Size :Up to about 1.75 inches
Visibility in the tank : Can be shy, but reports vary
Groups of these compatible :
Yes, do well in groups as long as they are not overcrowded. Keep up to two to a ten gallon, three to four to a twenty tall or five or six to a forty gallon tank.
Experience Level : Beginner.
Compatible with other species?
Yes, should be ok with other species if not crowded
While best results will probably be achieved in pairs, this frog often can be bred very well in groups. Using a group setting to sex them is also helpful. Set up a group, and allow them to pair off with each other. Separate pairs if desired, or if breeding is not successful.
Status in Hobby :
Stable and common. Recent importations have brought many bloodlines of this frog into the US.
A beautiful, small morph from northern Colombia. Populations are known from the north-eastern Chocó along the border of Panama. This Caribbean morph reaches an SVL of 27 – 30 mm. The pattern consists of big yellow-green drop-like spots (seldom bands) on a black background. We found a population near the village of Capurganá. The frogs inhabited the hills around Capurganá which are covered with primary and secondary lowland rainforest. Many habitats are situated very closely to the Caribbean coastline (5 – 10 m). Population densities were very high and we could find more than 10 individuals in an area of 10 m². This morph is very bold and displays a very active way of life.
14- Canal Zone :
Another morph with a large range. The occurrence extends along both sites of the Panama Canal from the Pacific slope nearly to the Caribbean Sea. This morph is also morphological highly conserved although some slight variability occurs. On a black or dark brown background this morph shows usually small green or bluish green dots or seldomly lines. Very similar looking populations are known from different nearby localities like Santa Rita, Parque Nacional Soberania, Ancon Hill or Barro Colorado Island which were once divided by humans in the beginning of the last Century according to the creation of the Panama Canal.
15- Capira :
Along the Río Capira and adjacent streams at the foothills of the Altos de Campana National Park in Panama occurs a morph that resembles the Kuna Yala morph. But both populations are divided by more than 100 km distance. The Capira morph shows a cream or beige pattern with bands, blotches, or reticulated lines on reddish brown ground (white pattern on dark-brown ground on the Kuna Yala morph). This middle sized D. auratus has an SVL of 32 to 35 mm. This morph is also called ‘Campana’ or ‘Kaluah & Cream’. In contrast to the Kuna Yala morph, this morph is very shy and can be very inactive during the dry season. The frogs live mostly in woody areas along streams or between big volcanic rocks in small forest patches in mostly cleared areas at altitudes from 50 to 400 m. At higher altitudes in the National Park of Altos de Campana, a slightly smaller, different-colored morph with small blue-green lines on a dark-brown background is found. This morph extends along the Río Capira into the lowlands and interbreeds with the ‘Capira’ morph. In this interbreeding zone, frogs with mixed pattern are found. Captive frogs with origin of this area were often called ‘Camouflage’.
17- Colon : Very rare and only this photo available on the internet ..
18-El Cope :
Native in Taboga, Reticulated Isla Taboga and Isla Taboguilla, Prov. Panama,
length 28-32 mm - Very Rare and not in the trade
20- Golden :
21- Green & white :
22- Highland Bronze
23- Kuna Yala
Another strange morph from the Caribbean lowlands in eastern Panama. This morph occurs at altitudes between 600 to 800 m at the Serrania de San Blas in the semi-autonomous territory of Kuna Yala. Medium sized morph with 32 to 35 mm SVL which shows an unusual pattern of white bands, reticulation, or even spots on a dark brown underground. Juveniles metamorphose with a uniform dark brown colour without pattern. The pattern lightens up during maturity and reach the clear cream-white tone only after several years. During their first years of life, the offspring of this morph could easily be mixed up with the very similar looking morph from Capira.
