Wrasslin' Wrestling WWE - What does it mean ?

Postby Philsuma » Sun Jan 24, 2016 1:59 pm

"Wrestling" or grappling, jumping on top, head-lock with Dendrobates tinctorius, auratus, leucomelas as well as Oophaga pumilio and most other dart frogs is not breeding behaviour.

Wrestling = Attempt to assert dominance. Aggression. Not good. Debilitating over time. Potentially deadly.

A couple species engage in cephalic amplexus, or 'head-lock sex' and the one that is commonly kept in the hobby that comes to mind is the epipidobates or 'tri color' dart frogs. Little peppermint reddish with a couple stripes.
