Blue Jeans Poison-dart Frog - Dendrobate Carrying it's baby! - Costa Rica

Blue-jeans Frog or Strawberry Poison-dart Frog (Dendrobates pumilio) Spanish name: Ranita roja

 

Adult frogs lay their eggs in moist places, including on leaves, in plants, among exposed roots, and elsewhere. Once the eggs hatch, the adults carry the tadpoles via piggyback to the nearest source of water, which is typically a pool, but can also be the water gathered in bromeliads or other plants. The tadpoles remain there until metamorphoses. They are as small as your finger nail, which makes them very hard to see.
