Habitat & Range
Green and black poison dart frogs are native to Central America and portions of northwestern South America.
Their color can be described as “mint green,” although they can also be various shades of green, pale yellow, or even cobalt blue. They measure approximately 1 inch long.
The black and green poison dart frog is an insectivore, meaning it primarily eats insects.
Reproduction & Lifespan
Joining together in large groups, with each male claiming his own territory, the females will browse for a suitable mate. After the eggs hatch, the males will carry the tadpoles to a small pond where they will feed and grow. Black and green poison dart frogs will live from 3 to 15 years in the wild.
