Ancon Hill is a morph of Dendrobates auratus. Easily differentiated from the other morphs, Ancon Hills are average in size and of extreme beauty. Primarily black or deep brown with only a few tiny circular blotches of green, the Ancon Hill morph is not as popular as other auratus morphs. Like other dark morphs, the Ancon Hill can be skittish and is not as bold as the morphs showing more green coloration, but are not shy (bolder than the 'Blue' and 'Campana' morphs). These animals morph with similar patterns to other green auratus, but the green breaks up as it matures. D. auratus 'Black' may be a population or variation within this group.
