Oophaga pumilio ‘Escudo’ is a very small locale from the island of Escudo in Panama. They are one of the smallest pumilio locales, while there has been a debate about this locale possibly being a separate species of Oophaga.

They are best kept as pairs or trios, as males are territorial and can be aggressive towards each other. Like other Oophaga species, the parents (usually Dad) carry their tadpoles to small bodies of water, and the female feeds them with infertile eggs. If you have a breeding pair or trio, be sure to have plenty of springtails around to seed your tank as newly morphed froglets can go weeks unnoticed.
