5-footed D. auratus
This juvenile Dendrobates auratus gave me quite a surprise.
I had gotten a couple of tadpoles from a friend, and because I was leaving
for Frogfest '99, I dumped both tadpoles into the pond of one vivarium.
I didn't know if either one survived, but some time later I discovered
two little froglets hopping around. Then I noticed that this one seemed
to be lame because one hind leg seemed stiff. It turned out that the inner
side of its lower leg is partially fused to the upper leg, and it
has two feet on that one leg.
