  • Dendrobates vanzolinii is a species of frog from the Dendrobatidae family. It is found in Brazil, Peru, and possibly Bolivia. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. Adults of this species grow to between 16.5-19mm and feed on a variety of tiny invertebrates. During the breeding season males have loud trill-like call. Unlike many species of Dendrobates the parents of the vanzolinii offspring return to care for their young. They will lay their fertile egg in an isolated pool. A bromeliad which has filled with water is an ideal place. Once the tadpole hatches the female encouraged by the male will lay an infertile egg into the small pool, this provides the tadpole with a food source until it can fend for itself. Wikipedia
