All domestic (Canadian) frog shipments must be shipped with Reptile Express. These shipments have to be booked by us directly with Reptile Express and thus we are not able to offer the direct online purchasing for the frogs at this time. Please email us or call to place an order for frogs.

This beautiful frog was only discovered in 2005 and described in 2008 (Brown et al.) R. benedicta is believed to be at least a partially arboreal species, often taking refuge amongst the large Aechmeas which adorn the canopy of the sweltering lowland forests it hails from.

In captivity R. benedicta may be shy.  this can be mitigated by designing a terrarium with plenty of structure and layered foliage allowing the frogs to feel secure.  Another factor to consider is the intensity of the lighting.  Less intense lighting may help the frogs feel more comfortable and encourage them to move more freely in the open areas of the terrarium.
