After a break from keeping darts I couldn't resist much longer and so got started again.
Picked up a trio of juveile D. azureus from the Doncaster Show at the end of the month:







Also have got a breeding group of one of my other favourite species - Epipedobates anthonyi:

I love the blue poison dart as well :) Curious though, do you need a licence for these? Never been sure. Granted, I could check the DWA list.... BUT I am being lazy, very lazy since I have a copy some where lol but figured quicker me asking than locating it!

Hi berksmike,

I need more photos. Of any, and every, frog you can point a lens at.

At the moment I'm living vicariously through your images.

Regards,

Wil

No, they are not a DWA listed species, the entire Dendrobatidae family are in fact not that deadly in captivity as in the wild they would be feeding on prey items that would contain the toxin which they have adapted to convert to their own advantage and seeing as they wouldnt be eating these such as Velvert Ants they wouldnt be toxic. So its perfectly legal, infact they are quite popularly kept in most countries, I have a few species myself such as E.tricolor (Phantasmal Poison Frogs) and Hyloxalus azureiventris (Sky-blue Poison Dart Frogs).

Love the photos! Gorgeous individuals especially the E.anthonyi, noticed that Anthonyi is becoming quite available lately.

I dont think Australia is actually allowed to import anything, not overly sure on that but the most species I see Australians keep is Axolotls.

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
