Andinobates virolinensis Wikipedia
Andinobates virolinensis are small frogs, measuring up to 19 mm (0.75 in) in snout-vent length.
Andinobates virolinensis live on the floor of cloud forest. Females lay the eggs in leaf-litter, and the males bring the larvae to the bromeliads. Reproduction occurs throughout the year. The diet consists of various arthropods, including mites, springtails, ants, and insect larvae. Thus, their diet is broadly similar to other poison dart frogs.
Andinobates virolinensis is considered "Endangered" by IUCN because it is known from very few locations and because its habitat is threatened by habitat loss, primarily due to agricultural expansion. However, where it occurs it is a common species.
Andinobates virolinensis is sometimes found in pet trade, despite the Decree INDERENA No. 39 from July 1985 that forbade the collection of dendrobatids from the wild for breeding (or other) purposes.
