Golden Mantella
( Mantella aurantiaca )

Golden Mantella - Golden Mantella information - Golden Mantella facts



Mantella aurantiaca is about 2.5 cm long and has got a typical golden-orange colour and lives mainly in a group of 3. It is found in rain forests in the south-eastern parts of Africa particularly often on isolated places.
The Golden mantilla searches for food throughout the day, which consists of insects e.g.: ants, worms, termites and so on. The external fertilization is typical for them and occurs in damp places always close to the water. Its highly-visible coloration is used as a natural protection against predators, because it may imitate some toxic species.
