Mint terribilis are a unique population/morph/locale of P. terribilisCommonly called the terrible dart frog due to it being the most toxic vertebrate on the planet. An adult wild Phyllobates terribilis is reportably capable of killing 10-15 adult humans (fortunately, like all dart frogs, captive bred animals are completely nontoxic and harmless). Terribilis are also known as the Golden Poison Dart Frog. In the American frog hobby, P. terribilis are ofen called terribilis or simply terribs.

Recommended Vivarium Size: A 10 gallon aquarium is suitable for a single Phyllobates terribilis 'Mint', but Josh's Frogs recommends a 29G or 24x18x18 Vivarium for 1-3 frogs. 

Temperature: They can tolerate a temperature range of 65 F to 80 F, but prefer temperatures in the low to mid 70s. Temperatures over 80F are dangerous. Poison Dart Frogs of the genus Phyllobates are notoriously sensitive to warmer temperatures.

Humidity: Like most poison dart frogs, terribs prefer a humidity range of 70 – 100%, but can tolerate humidity down to 50% for short periods of time if the frogs have access to water. Low humidity levels, especially without access to water, can quickly be fatal.

Size: Adult female terribilis are larger, measuring in at approximately 2 inches. Male terribs tend to be a bit smaller, averaging about 1.75 inches at maturity. Size is not always a good indication of sex, however - even when dealing with frogs that are several years old! All of the Phyllobates terribilis 'Mint' froglets Josh's Frogs sells are well started juveniles, and measure approximately 5/8” long.

Age: Phyllobates terribilis 'Mint' is capable of living well over 20 years in captivity under ideal conditions, although a lifespan of 10 years is more common. All terribs for sale at Josh's Frogs are well started juveniles, and are 2-3 months old.
