This elfin gem is distributed primarily the Amazonian lowland forests of eastern Loreto, Peru. The forests here are hot and humid, with daytime temperature soaring often above 90F; even under the canopy, the temperatures may be stifling. Reticulata is a terrestrial frog, climbing only to deposit tadpoles in the guzmania and other bromeliads that often grow in abundance in the lower strata of the forests.

Ranitomeya reticulata is a species best left to more experienced hands. Established animals do best when kept in a warm vivaria with plenty of leaf-litter, and a good arthropod diversity established in the substrate on which the animals will forage.

Excellent animal for those looking for a slightly more challenging species. The reticulata we offer are nearly full grown animals well beyond the most sensitive juvenile stages.  

The red faced morph of reticulata is generally slightly more robust than the standard form of reticulata, with a finer reticulum on the limbs, lateral and ventral regions.  The red of the dorsum is slightly softer and extends to cover the face/cheeks and in most cases the entirety of the gular region.  Aditionally it is not uncommon for some of the juvenile spotting on the dorsum to persist into adulthoot.
