Black-eared mantella
This frog, a Mantella aurantiaca "milotympanum" was given to me by a pet shop that wasn't able to sell him for several months. He came with a Mantella expectata, and both of them tolerate heat extremely well unlike many Mantellas. This tiny little guy (he's only a bit bigger than the D. auratus froglet in the lower right corner of the picture) has been calling pretty often, and unlike the shy M. expectata he's always out and about. He can capture and eat rather large crickets, so in spite of his size he's not limited to eating fruitflies.
