Silverstone’s Poison Frog

Silverstone's Poison Frog

Female silverstone’s poison frogs lay about 30 eggs terrestrially in a closely packed single layer underneath leaves and leaf-litter.

It is assumed that female Silverstone’s poison frogs lay eggs more than once a year, and possibly throughout the entire year due to the constantly wet climate in which they live.

The female lays her eggs terrestrially in a closely packed single layer underneath leaves and leaf-litter. Clutches are small, usually made up of about 30 eggs, and have been observed on leaves.

The male holotype was found in November guarding a clutch of 30 eggs in a dry leaf.
