This week’s featured frog is the bumblebee dart frog (Dendrobates leucomelas). This has been one of the most common dart frogs bred in captivity for decades, and with good reason. It is a strikingly beautiful frog, typically a jet black with bright yellow bands, of varying type depending on the morph. There is also a chocolate morph, which has a chocolate brown background with yellow bands. The bumblebee dart is a medium-large dart frog. It is primarily terrestrial, meaning it spends most of its time on the ground, but will occasionally crawl up into bromeliads in the vivarium tree. It is one of the boldest, most active dart frogs, typically being out and about, exploring and hunting for food, most of the day. It is also generally very robust and healthy. I routinely advise my vivarium clients to include a pair or trio of this stunning frog in their vivariums. It is sociable and gets along well with other animals in a community vivarium. Secret Environments obtains dart frogs for our clients from only the best captive breeders in the country.
