Poison Dart Frog

  • 1

This poison dart frog is tiny, gorgeous, and very, very dangerous. Members of the Dendrobatidae family, poison dart frogs have aposematic coloration, which serves as a warning to predators to stay away. Most of these amphibians are less than two-and-a-half inches long, but their poison is strong enough to be lethal. In Colombia, the Emberá people still use the venom to tip their blowgun darts, which explains why they’re called poison dart frogs. Scientists are still trying to figure out how, exactly, they gain their toxicity. They believe that it has something to do with these tiny frogs eating beetles, ants, and termites and assimilating the plant poisons that they carry into an ooze that is secreted by their skin.
