The golden poison frog (Phyllobates terribilis) is the largest species of poison dart frog, and can reach a weight of nearly 30 grams with a length of 6 cm as adults. Females are typically larger than males. The adults are brightly coloured, while juvenile frogs have mostly black bodies with two golden-yellow stripes along their backs. The black fades as they mature, and at around 18 weeks of age the frog is fully coloured. The frog's colour pattern is aposematic (a coloration to warn predators of its toxicity). Despite their common name, golden poison frogs occur in four main colour varieties.
We currently have both juveniles and full grown adults in stock.
