I've recently taken the plunge in the world of dart frogs! I've been very involved in the reptile community for +10 years and have several of those years invested at a vet hospital. After years of resisting, I finally caved and got my first dart frog Dendrobates tinctorius New River. What I thought was going to be straight forward transaction, I was in for a surprise. I had actually purchased 4 (along with 4 thumbnails with a friend as we went in on the purchase together) New Rivers from a 'breeder' in edmonton that had an ad on craigslist by the name of slava. Well they transported all 8 frogs in a box with over TEN HOT SHOTS in the box with the frogs for their short trip in their car to be dropped off at a friends place until they were large enough to be shipped (why post frogs for sale that aren't even big enough to be re-homed yet and not disclose this with the buyer until after the purchase, I'm not sure). So obviously there were fatalities due to heat. And I didn't find out until the 3 remaining frogs (1 new river and 2 thumbnails who I hear did not make it in their new home) were sent to me by our friend in edmonton (who claimed they died right after she received them and had several big frog names even verify that after they sought out help from experienced breeders why the frogs were passing away one after another). After very politely bringing this to the breeders attention they claimed they knew what they were doing as they had been doing this for over 2 or 3 years. Now I'm not sure about you but I've been breeding endangered species of reptile for +10 years and there's always still something to learn. At no point would I call myself a pro and stop seeking out more information on care/health. So, I am now the proud care taker of a single New River Dart frog. I love the little guy/gal and once it is a bit bigger I will be placing it in its new forever home! Here are some photos of the build of its new tank. It's not fully complete, the plants are really starting to take over and baby tears are covering most of the ground that isn't covered in leaf liter.
