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.
