P. bicolor "Green Leg" Sub Adult Group of 4

We produced a bumper crop of beautiful orange (green leg form) bicolor last winter and spring, and now I have a few that are approaching adulthood.  I'm offering groups of 4 of these, at special pricing.  I think these are an excellent potential breeding project...if you are interested in producing some dart frogs, this would be a great way to get started.  These frogs are some of the easiest dart frogs to breed, and will generally be successful breeders no matter the sex ratio that your foursome turns out to be, as long as you get both sexes....and your chances will be pretty good with four frogs! 

These bicolor dart frogs are sweet frogs with so much to recommend them! They get along well in groups, they rarely hide, and they are quite easy to care for and breed.  I can't stress enough how nice it is to have a tank of several frogs that don't hide, and get along with each other!  Of course they are good looking as well, that doesn't hurt either. Extremely bold and outgoing, overall an excellent dart frog for beginners.

Bicolor are closely related to terribilis, and are one of the three or four species of truly poisonous dart frogs, although apparently roasting over an open fire is required to obtain the poisons needed to tip darts.  Terribiliis on the other hand only require you to pass a dart over the skin a couple of times to acheive the necessary poisons on your dart tip to drop a monkey, or human, practically in its tracks.  (Needless to say, as with all dart frogs, these captive bred frogs are completely non toxic!)  Bicolor are a mid sized dart frog, similar in size to say leucomelas or larger auratus forms.  Several different locality specific color variants exist in the wild, and many have made their way into captivity.  This orange form was originally brought in for the first time, (that I know of) in the late nineties, and I happened to be "around" for the occasion.  A friend of mine told me he had arranged to import a group of 50 orange terribilis from Europe, (captive bred, aproximately half grown).  When they arrived we both spent time staring at them, trying to decide if they were really terribilis, or if they were bicolor.  I was advocating for them being bicolor, as they didnt have as much texture on their legs, and the legs were not as solid color as I thought terribilis should be.  Plus they were all the same size roughly, that size being the size of adult bicolor!  At that time the predominant bicolor form in the US hobby was usually black legged, or the legs would have some speckles of color on them.  There was also a green leg form, which sported legs that were kind of a orangy green.  Anyway, I figured out that they were bicolor, wild caught bicolor at that, because the first time I cleaned out their quarantine tubs, my fingers started burning!  Kind of scary since I didn't know how bad it was going to get...fortunately it wasn't too bad!
