About This Product

This listing is for one (1) Dendrobates tinctorius 'Patricia' tadpole. When you order this, you will receive one (1) tadpole 3-4 weeks of age.

We strongly recommend purchasing our Dart Frog Tadpole Kit when you purchase your tadpoles - they can ship together for the same $39.99 flat rate overnight shipping charge.

Josh's Frogs recommends rearing poison dart frog tadpoles individually in 16 oz. tadpole cups, due to their cannibalistic nature. The tadpole cup should initially be filled with at least 10 oz. of tadpole tea. Evaporated water should be replaced with distilled or reverse osmosis water, or with more tadpole tea.

Definitely worth it!

I ordered 4 of these tadpoles and as a first time tadpole raiser I was very nervous, but I didn't need to be! All 4 tadpoles were healthy, arrived quickly and were impeccably packed. Their care was extremely easy and though They were really skittish as tadpoles (making me worry about how they would be as frogs) already they're very bold and wait impatiently in the open areas of the tank for food. Pictures don't do them justice either, they're gorgeous little frogs. If you're thinking about getting these, but aren't sure, they're definitely worth the time and it is so fun to watch them grow up!
