A frog he would a-wooing go, Heigh ho! 

Today, I picked up my first frogs from Brian, a breeder in Wisconsin. They are green and black poison dart frogs, actually better known by their scientific name, Dendrobates auratus. Within the frogger hobby, this morph - or variation within a species - is called "turquoise and tan".

At this stage they can't be sexed. I got 5 total, which gives me a 94% chance of having at least one breeding pair. This morph is somewhat variable - note the frog on the right is bluer than the others.

Brian also threw in three auratus eggs.
