Phyllobates bicolorScientific name: Phyllobates bicolor

Common name: Black-legged poison frog

Distribution: Western Colombia

Favoured terrain: This is an active species - like the larger dart frogs it is predominantly ground-dwelling where it spends its time hunting for food.

Phyllobates bicolorDificulty: A larger frog with an equally large apetite. Keep well fed

Notes: Phyllobates bicolor is a stunning dartfrog - it is closely related to Phyllobates terribilis and as such would be highly toxic in the wild. Like all dartfrogs it looses its poison in captivity.
