Gorgeous frogs that deserve more attention. Have you seen this site http://www.hitroy.com/mantellas.html ? It basically uses the same photographs as above but with an additional picture and a little more information. Both are very good guides to mantella frogs.

Mantella cowani, that one looks the best to me. Also the red one looks very awesome.

Very nice, I hadn't seen that site yet.
Hopefully someday they are as popular as dart frogs are now.

Mantella aurantiaca looks like an imitator of the Phyllobates terribilis complexion. Do these mantellas have toxic mucus like Darts?

From what I've read they do make toxins from their native diet, and just as darts do they lose that in captivity.

I've always wondered: what DO these frogs eat in the wild that they're not getting in captivity that is causing them to lose their toxicity? Is it more elaborate than just a varietal diet? Maybe a certain insect carries a vitamin that aids in synthesizing the toxin?

From what I've heard it's the ants that they eat in the wild, but the ants get it from the plants.

it is a shame they dont get more attention. i tried carrying them at the petstore that i manage, but they were not a big hit by any means! a year later i still have the mantella aruantacia. it could partially be because im only 30 minutes south of black jungle, and everyone would rather have darts.

M. betsileo is very similiar to M. ebenaui, just in case anyone is wondering and at one point they were considered the same species. And the classification has been changed so many times over the past century nothing is set in stone.

Good representation of current classification Josh.
