Phyllobates Bicolor

Recommended Posts

Anyone keep these? I'm considering a pair for my next frogs.

Would probably go for at least a 60x40x40.

Care seems to be similar to terribilis, I guess these are supposed to be just as greedy?

Hi

Yes bicolors are a great frog to keep in groups and are greedy feeders. They are a smaller frog than a terribilis.

Unfortunately, at present i have never seen anyone offering any for sale recently. Like many other types of dartfrogs, they seem to plenty then none available, going in and out of fashion. A couple of years ago there were lots around. I dont know of anyone breeding or selling at present, but good luck in finding some as they are a great frog.

 

regards

 

Gordon

Thanks for the reply, I do really like the look of bicolors.

I guess I'll just have to see what's available next year.☺

If you cannot get any bicolors. I may have some yellow terribilis youngsters for sale in the spring but i fear the distance between us may be too far. Someone els on here will also probablies have yellow terribilis for sale also.

Terribilis would be my next choice, always had a soft spot for them. Will keep you posted as to whether I manage to find some bicolor.

Also, thank you for your kind offer, i'ts a shame about the distance.

Finally managed to pick up two 3 month old froglets the other day, really pleased as they are lovely looking frogs.

Both are eating well and spending lots of time foraging in the leaf litter.

I hope to maybe add another one once I've had chance to build a larger viv.

I was going to reply that Emily has some for sale and then I see that you are from cornwall, so I am guessing you did get them from Emily. Tri-Mar also sell them but again, those are from emily

I thought I had three males... but after lots of calling and jumping about over the last few days I found a clutch of 9 eggs in the coco hut this evening.

Looking good. Only joy I've had has been the tricolours, Imis and one stray clutch from the Bora ridge.

One of the four tads now has front and back legs, the other three look to to have fronts popping soon.

Two more have been transported into the gulley and another 8 eggs are developing nicely.

Thanks for the info Gordon.

It's been nice seeing them develop and so quickly compared to my Mysteriosus.

Well done. They are great looking frogs. You don't see enough of these about IMO.

Always though bicolor were amazing since seeing them at London zoo about five years ago. Will you be selling any offspring in the near future?

Yes, some should hopefully be ready to go in November.

They are great frogs for sure, I've really been captivated since first seeing them too.

Fab, could I reserve two please? I’m only in Devon, so can pop down for them when they’re ready to go. Will be in touch again in October to check in. 

Cheers, 

Rob

Great - how old will they be in November, and what will it cost for the two?

They'll be three months old in November mate.

Going to be asking £30 each for these or £25 for four or more.

There will be three hopefully ready in November and then more hopefully ready in in December/January, I'll have to see how mature they are at the time though as I want them to have a good start and this is my first time raising them. 

I'll be posting an ad in the classifieds in due course.
