How to housing your Poison Dart Frog?
- Poison dart frogs are one of the most colorful and fascinating pets in the reptile and amphibian world.
- These frogs display a variety of interesting interactions and have some of the most complex breeding behaviors in the hobby. Unlike most amphibians, poison dart frogs are diurnal (active during the day).
- The true gauge of your dart frog’s satisfaction with the humidity level is their behavior. If your frogs are hiding and you don’t see them much, try cutting back on the ventilation. Poison dart frogs don’t need or enjoy ventilation, especially when the air that is “ventilating” their tank is dry household air.
- Standard glass fish tanks and front-opening terraria are both good choices.
- The keys to success are to avoid overcrowding these frogs and to keep a stable group together rather than adding new frogs to the tank.
- A moist substrate, such as long-fiber sphagnum moss, and a few leaves for hide spots are all you need.
