Dendrobates Auratus Capurgana


  • Great beginner frog
  • Bright yellow/green and black
  • Moderately Shy
  • Easy to breed
  • Quiet call
  • Can be kept in groups


Recommended Vivarium Size: At least 10 gallons per frog


Temperature: Range of 65 F to 80 F, but prefer temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Temperatures over 85 F are dangerous.


Humidity: Range of 70 – 100%, but can tolerate humidity down to 50% for short periods of time if the frogs have access to water. Low humidity levels, especially without access to water, can quickly be fatal.


Size: Adult female Capurgana are larger, measuring approximately 1.5 inches. Male Capurgana are a bit smaller, averaging about and 1.25 inches at maturity. 


Life-Span: Capurgana are capable of living well over 20 years in captivity under ideal conditions, although a lifespan of 10 years is more common.


Feeding: Dendrobates Auratus Capurgana eat Drosphilia Hydei or Drosphilia Melanogaster fruit flies.  Capurgana will also eat pinhead crickets, springtails and isopods.  All feeder insects should be dusted with supplements.


Sexing: Dendrobates Auratus Capurgana are not sexable until 10-12 months of age. Male Capurgana tend to be smaller than females, which often appear both longer and wider. Finn's Frog Farms sells unsexed juvenile frogs, least three months out of the water.  


Color/Pattern: Dendrobates auratus Capurgana can range in color from a pale yellow/green to a bright green on a black body and legs.


Social Behavior: These frogs do well housed in groups their entire life span, as long as enough space is provided. Finn's Frog Farm strongly recommends against housing different species/morphs of dart frogs. 


Breeding: Capurgana are very simple and easy to breed. Generally, eggs are deposited on a smooth broad leaf, or on a petri dish under a cocohut. The eggs hatch into tadpoles, which then take 60-90 days to complete metamorphosis into miniature versions of the adults.
