 ADW: Dendrobates azureus: Information
Dendrobates azureus is a mid-sized dendrobatid frog weighing about 3 grams and having a length ranging from 3 to 4.5 cm.
Dendrobates azureus is brightly colored, and this coloration serves as a warning to would-be predators of its poisonous properties.
Dendrobates azureus has skin that remains sticky from mucus secretions which not only helps to hold moisture in, but also enables tadpoles to take hold when they are carried from the egg-site to their new aquatic home.

 ADW: Dendrobates auratus: Information
Dendrobates auratus adults are found on the floor of rain forests.
Dendrobates auratus are diurnal, and are seldom still during the day, constantly searching for food and taking care of young with distinctive hopping motions.
In fact, it is speculated that members of the genus Dendrobates will be the first poison dart frogs to be put on the endanged list of a major conservation organization such as CITES or ESA.

Esistono nella foresta amazzonica delle bellissime raganelle colorate di piccole dimensioni chiamate dendrobates o rane pigmeo o rane freccia avvelenata (in inglese poison arrow frogs) che secernono dalla pelle una sostanza velenosa tossica e a volte mortale.
Le dendrobates sono rane molto piccole (5 centimetri massimo) con un veleno, secreto da ghiandole poste sulla pelle, dei più attivi tra quelli esistenti; quello si alcune specie é addirittura in grado di uccidere un uomo in brevissimo tempo.
Il terrario per le dendrobates dovrà essere molto spazioso: (circa 30x30x30 ogni 3-4 esemplari) poiché i maschi sono molto territoriali; dovrà inoltre avere un’umidità molto elevata e vi si dovrà mantenere una buona igiene all'interno.

The blue frog, or Dendrobates azureus are probably the most well known dart frog, and for those of you who have always wanted these frogs, once you get them, you will find their beauty does not disappoint.
Their habitat does not seem to be in any danger for the time being, so they are not particularly endangered, but it is always of concern when an animal is restricted to a fairly small habitat.
These frogs are very similar to Dendrobates tinctorius, and for practical purposes may be considered the same in terms of habits and breeding, although each form of tinctorius is a little different in terms of its breeding.
