Another Poison Dart Frog

Dendrobates auratus is known as the Green and Black Poison Dart Frog for obvious reasons, however, colours do vary throughout their range the extreme being blue and black.

This is the second Dendrobates species we have found close to where we are living. Like the other species we have encountered (Dendrobates granuliferus), D. auratus is most active in the early mornings. They are extremely lively little frogs, continually hopping in short sharp leaps, rarely pausing for too long. Makes for a challenging photographic subject.
