D. tinctorius "Peacock", Sexed Pair

After working with these beauties for a couple of years now, I'm finally beginning to get enough holdbacks to a large enough size to begin offering some sexed pairs!   These frogs are around 2/3rds grown, under good care they should be ready to breed in just three or so months.  As is the case with most of my sexed pair photos, the male is on the left.. 

This listing is for the pictured frogs. You will receive these exact frogs. Pair 6 March 2024

This is one of those "holy grail" or must have dart frogs for some collectors!  A very unusual appearing tinctorius, and very beautiful!  This frog is fairly new in the hobby, and there is some controversy regarding their origins and presence in the hobby.  If you would like a summation of why these frogs are considered (by me) to be legal and ethical to own, feel free to drop me a note. 

Briefly though, these frogs are produced from legally imported frogs (imported from Europe), and the parents of my parent stock were produced in zoos in Europe.  The zoo stock may consist of animals which were seized, illegally imported into Europe, although I do not know this for sure, but it is a safe bet that this is the case, since the native population of these frogs exists in a national park in Brazil. (However there is information that indicates that they may also range into areas well outside of this park, and possibly extend into neighboring French Guiana). 

Brazil has a long standing policy of not allowing any animal exports, ergo any frog or animal that is native to Brazil, but found outside of Brazil, would be considered (by Braziil) to be illegal. However I cannot help but point out that Brazil is very busy cutting down Amazon rainforest, as well as flooding large tracts of forest as they create hydro electric dams. Bottom line is that frogs removed from Brazil are stranded, and offspring they produce are no more "illegal" than any other tinctorius, in particular since, according to CITES and scientific definition, they are just a dendrobates tinctorius.
