Default Spotted Phyllobates Bicolor

This little guy has been in my care for over a year and I am noticing that he is not coloring up like the other bicolor I've kept. He and his brother both came from Saurian from presumably the same clutch, yet look so different.






Here's the two side by side for comparison. Sorry it's so blurry.



A better pic of his brother from last spring (his legs are fully colored now)



Does anyone know if this is just individual variation or something genetic? The little guy recently bred with one of Mark Wilson's oranges.

Thanks for the input, Aaron. The other variations you mentioned, I've seen before. It seems odd that he looks exactly the same as he did from the day of his arrival except that he's much larger and speckled. The bluish color speckles are what I thought was the most odd. Do you see them on his belly?

Like Aaron said they do vary alot and only in the last few, like 10 years have we seen more and more solid colored frogs.
