The Green and Black Poison Frog is an attractive dart frog with a rather different color paint job. Their green is almost a metallic light lime green on the contrast of a black body. Dendrobates auratus are just as great to keep as they are to look at. They make amazing display animals and I particularly love to keep these with orchids and a few bromeliads. They do really well on a diet of small insects like cultured fruit flies and pinhead crickets. I would definitely recommend this species to the hardcore dart frog keepers!
