17- Oelemarie :

Very large morph, whose females can reach a KRL of 70 mm


The coloring and patterning is very variable. The body is black and the yellow pattern is differently pronounced. Some animals are almost completely black with only small yellow dots or stripes, others bear a pronounced yellow head mask and larger yellow patterns on the back.


Young animals show a more or less pronounced blue hindleg coloring, but they grow rapidly and they have a light yellow back with pattern. Adult 'Oelemarie' have only small dark blue spots on the hind legs and most yellow disappears.

The pair was legally imported in 2011. The female has three large dots on his head, which glimmer orange, depending on the light. The male carries a bright-yellow head mask.

This large Tinctorius variant produces appropriate tadpoles with optimal feeding, which form their magnificent colors at the final stage of the water phase.


The countrymen vary in color intensity. Some young frogs show lighter yellow on the head, others are deep orange. Unfortunately, the colors are lost quickly and also the body coloring assumes more a dot-and-dot pattern. The blue on the hind legs is reduced to a fine mesh pattern and the initially turquoise shimmering edges disappear.


The last three photos show the same young animals each at a distance of one month.
