Ranitomeya viridis (Myers & Daly, 1976)

Ranitomeya viridis

This ground-dwelling species of frogs, found in the leaf litter of premontane and lowland rainforest in Cordillera Occidental  and Pacific lowlands of the Departamentos Valle del Cauca and Cauca in Colombia, at 100-1,100 m a.s.l., is listed as “vulnerable” (VU) on the Red List.

The females reach the length of 15.2 and the males of 14.0 mm. They are uniformly metallic green and partly speckled with black, with their upper side darker than the lower side.

The species is known from two sites and is thought to be much more common in the Río Anchicayá Valley between 600 and 1,200 m than in the lowlands on the Río Saija at 100-200 m above the sea level.

However, there are no information yet available neither on their diet, husbandry and breeding, nor on the most acceptable type of terrarium.
