An endangered mint morph of the terrible poison dart frog (Phyllobates terriblis) from a private collection. This is a male and on his back are several tadpoles, which he carries until he can find a suitable wet place to drop them off so they can develop into young frogs. In the wild this would be inside water-filled bromeliad plants high up in trees and away from predators. Some tropical amphibians carry their tadpoles to water.
