What kind of blue and yellow frog is that at the top ?

What is the kind of frog with blue legs and yellow body ?

I was thinking about getting 2.1 D. azureus, but now i'm thinking about bi-colored frogs as there is obviously just more color.

Aren't there frogs with rainbow colors ?

Here's a good source for pictures. I'm pretty sure that's a Cobalt pictured above.

Agoutihead, I don't wish to sound harsh but have you done much research into darts before you decided to get some?

D tinctorius are one of the commonest and easiest to recognise species, and the fact that you did not recognise the ones above as tinctorius suggests to me that you could do with doing some more background reading before you purchase any frogs.

I am not trying to belittle you or put you off the hobby but darts are not the easiest of things to keep and to go into it without knowing the basics is a recipe for disaster.

Far better to spend a bit of extra time reading on here/other forums/books than to spend a lot of money only to have the frogs die on you.

I had the same question to be honest,I think they were wondering excatley which one it was as theres so many that look like the that.And depending on which way they are photoed they look diffrent.Also its really hard to find info on these guys.Is there a site that tells you which is hardiest etc? Ive seen a couple sellers says that this one or that one is hardy but no real list.Im gald i came across this as i was planning on getting the cobalts,i had not read anything that said they were difficult to raise.
thanks

this guy is a troll- he was on the other forums asking a bunch of weird questions.

just cause one doesen't know a species of a frog doesen't mean they can't care for them. it only means they haven't memorized to coler paterns of every frog morph/species out thier like you have. being able to look at a picture and tell what it is has little to do with providing care and a proper habitat for frogs that you have. all that matters is that a person knows what kinds of frogs they have.

Zaroba, this is the second time this morning that you have had a go at me personally, and while it is starting to piss me off, I will let it pass :D

If anyone reads up on dartfrogs, they are bound to have seen pictures of D. tinctorius, they are big, bold, popular and easily recognisable. Therefore to not recognise them as a type of tinc, regardless of whether you know the exact morph or not, suggests that a bit more looking around may be worthwhile before investing in your first frogs.

I clearly stated that I was not trying to belittle him or put him off the hobby and yet you still felt that it was worth laying into me about. I am glad that you think I am so knowledgeable that I have memorised all the morphs/species of dart in existence, but you are mistaken. If you have a point to make then by all means make it, but I would appreciate it if you could keep your personal sleights to yourself in future.

LOL this can be a tough crowd to feel a part of. I think I agree a little with each of you and disagree a little with each of you. While no one probably intended to "attack" the other, the problem with sights like this is that the words don't always sound the same to us readers. (I guess thats why we have Emoticons :?: )

I stopped posting here for quite some time after I asked my first couple of questions. I was criticized for not caring enough about my frogs, not doing enough research, not reading all the old posts on the forum and even because my question about feeding was in the food section and not in the newbie section where someone thought it belonged. :( I was accused of other things that weren't true but I finally let it all pass. I realized I was fighting a losing battle and it wasn't worth continuing.

Luckily I did get an answer to my questions anyway so I'm thankful for that. This seems like a great group of folks that sure care about these frogs but gosh you all sound like a bunch of NY fans at a Boston ball game sometimes. LOL :lol: JUST KIDDING!!! :P

erm...how did i have a go at you?

i just stated some obvious statements.
like, all that matters is that he knows what kind of frogs he has so he can care for them.

but it is quite funny that your complaining that i somehow attacked your post after you pretty much attacked him :P

This is the line that I felt was a sarcastic dig at me, if I am wrong then my apologies.

And I stand by my statement that if you do not recognise the commonest species of frog, then it is probably a good idea to do a bit more reading up before you make your first purchase.

I make no apologies for trying to encourage people to learn as much as possible before purchasing their first frogs.

Easier to learn and keep successfully from the start than to become disillusioned if your first frogs die due to lack of research and perhaps miss out on the joys that this hobby can give :D

yes, learning the most you can is always the best thing to do.

sorry about that post though. the whole post could have been put in a nicer sounding way.

Most frogs aren't even that difficult to care for. I don't know what the big deal is. I didn't know what kind of tinc that was either as I don't collect any of the bigger frogs... I guess maybe that guy would have been better off not asking that question that he simply didn't know the answer to. It's not like this is the Q & A section of a message board...
