Hi All,

Please check out: The Natural History and Captive Care of the Green and Black Poison Frog

Little-Known Facts
First a few notes that have surprised me over the years.
Hobbyists accustomed to seeing these frogs in terrariums may be surprised to learn that wild specimens sometimes venture into forest canopies over 100 feet above ground…quite a climb for a minute frog!
Females wrestle one another for mating rights, and actively court males, who may ignore them until “tapped” on the back. They may also consume the eggs of rival females.
Male Green and Black Poison Frogs may mate with up to 6 females, and care for the broods of each simultaneously. Despite this, males seem able to “predict” hatching times, and seem always on hand to transport the tadpoles to water.
In those wild populations studied, ants were found to form the bulk of the diet.
