Dendrobates tinctorius 'New River'
#1
Hey guys, I've grabbed a few decent shots of my female New Rivers.
Its very hard to get good shots of these since the blue tend to turn whitish when photographed.

Got some new projects in the works. including building 1 of the permanent homes for these guys.
It will be an 18 x18 x18 cube ZooMed. With a faux rock background, of which Ive already received 5 out of the 9 rocks I intend to choose from for the rock pile background.
In addition to this I intend to plant the tank to make those frogs really pop out in the viv. The viv will be based on having the frogs and hard scape be most of the focus and less about the cool plants.

You're right about the camera not being able to capture the light blue. We have a female and the lighter shade almost looks metallic.

Very nice looking frogs you have there, Todd. The patterns are sweet!

The colors are amazing on these 5! Apparently the blue coloration is built of Iridophores which is that metallic look you were describing. This makes the blue reflect light in odd ways making it nearly impossible to photograph

My favorite female has such a deep blue on her back its un-describable!

Yeah Ive known about the iridophores in plants, but up until about 2 years ago I did not know that was what caused the colors in some animals. I believe it is mostly blues and greens in the frogs. But in some plants it can also include several other colors such as red, bronze and silver.

Phil, sorry I thought I labeled the frogs in the original post. The original post shows the females.
I currently have 2.3 from the Vanishing Jewels line. No clue what generation unfortunately.
