Dendrobates tinctorius Regina

Found in eastern French Guiana, east of the town named Regina. They initially were called "Giant Orange" but do not get as large as true "Giant Orange." For years in the USA, these specimens were called "Giant Oranges" and probably inter-bred. They are nonetheless a large tinctorius with an orange crest in some specimens. They have variable amounts of yellow coloration with blue reticulations under the chin, in their cloaca area and on the hind legs. This is a different population than the Giant Orange tinctorius, differing by the blue color, pattern and distribution (blue leg markings on the Regina morph). These Regina tinctorius have a darker blue markings under the chin and in the cloacal area. The blue markings are a larger reticulated pattern than seen in the Giant Oranges. Be aware in Europe many breeders call Regina and Giant Orange one frog. In the USA, there has been confusion over discriminating the two. Many breeders call their Regina tinctorius-Giant Orange and vis versa
