Frankfurt am Main 2013, hardcover, 220 pages, more than 500 colour photos
This first monograph dealing with the strawberry poison frog covers a huge variety of aspects . Beginning with a description of the natural habitat and the distribution of Oophaga pumilio several issues are discussed: Why do some morphs of this species obviously show an aposematic colouration whereas others show a cryptic colouration? In the centre of the book the morphs that were genetically clearly defined recently are presented in a table. This overview shows the local distribution, the range of colours and patterns and the maximum size that can be reached, respectively. This section is illustrated with approx. 200 photos made by the late Chris van der Lingen. A large chapter then offers information on captive husbandy of Oophaga pumilio. Frank Steinmann put the focus here on compiling a large variety of materials that can be used to build a nice tropical terrarium, but he also recommends to consider the impact of using tropical plants. Feeder animals are also discussed as well as the technical settings that are required to fulfill the needs of a poison dart frog. The large variety of plants that is available for frog enthusiasts nowadays and that make a terrarium an attractive set-up for everybody supplements this book.
