Default Mint or bicolor?

image.jpgHi, I recently got a "mint terribilis" from a reptile store and I'm not so sure if it really is a mint. I know that they get more minty as adults but I just wanted to make sure this isnt a bicolor.

Dont know why the picture turned upside down after uploading.

Edit: also he's sub adult. Still got black spots under his belly and some on the legs

looks like a green legged bi color. I have mints and bi colors. It should be mint green if it were a mint. Bi colors are a very unappreciated frog.

Definitely not a mint. They are like off white with a green tint and kind of mother of pearl looking.

Loos a lot like bicolor. Some mints are greenish, but have no yellow.

Any guess based on appearance will be just that, a guess. Since the label was most likely incorrect, the best thing to do would be to consider it a mystery Phyllobates, not suitable for breeding due to unknown lineage.

I definitely agree with that. Don't bicolors tend to have smoother skin than terribilis. Like on the legs?

Thanks for all the replies. I still love my dart frog but I'm just a little upset at the store for false advertising.
