Golden Mantella Frog

    Newer Older

    One of the Golden Mantella frogs at the Lakeland Wildlife Oasis near Milnthorpe in north Lancashire. These frogs have grown from tadpoles at the LWO
    The Golden Mantella (Mantella aurantiaca) is a small, terrestrial frog native to Madagascar. The Golden Mantellas do not have a particular mating season; they will mate after rain and if enough food is available. The males will call in a concealed position near a water source. The call is a series of three clicks, repeated many times. Once the females is amplexed, they will move towards a suitable area, and lay eggs. They lay eggs on moist land, and the tadpoles are washed into water once they hatch.
    It is a small frog, appx 2.5 cm (1 inch) and as such, is restricted to a diet of invertebrates and small lizards.They live at an altitude of about 900m
