Poison frogs are widely called poison arrow frogs or poison dart frogs, reflecting the widespread notion that the frogs are used by
South American tribes in the manufacture of poison that is spread on arrows or blow-gun darts.
Poison arrow frogs are tiny. There are many different types, all basically black in colour with bright markings of red, green, orange or yellow depending on the
species. The bright colours serve as a warning to other animals that their skin is poisonous. The powerful poison affects the muscles and nerves when it enters
the blood stream of other animals. Some native Indians have used this poison for their weapons. Poison-arrow frogs are about the size of a man's thumbnail (less
than one inch). The tiny frogs lay their eggs on leaves. When the tadpole hatches, it is carried on one of the parents' back to a bromeliad where the parents feed
it small insects, ants, spiders, crustaceans, and tiny water animals. The mother frog may also lay infertile eggs as food for the tadpoles.
Poison-arrow frogs are social frogs found in Central and South America. They are known by their bright colours which warn other animals that they are poisonous.
Its poison is one of the most powerful known and can cause paralysis or death. It is so potent that one millionth of an ounce can kill a dog and an amount smaller
than a grain of salt can kill a human. One frog carries enough poison to kill about 100 people. Native hunters use it on the tips of their arrows which is how the
frog got its name.
The poison dart frog, poison arrow frog, dart frog or poison frog, is the common name given to the group of frogs native to Central and South America.
Mature male frogs will usually make a mating call after eating or after a heavy misting of water. The sound is similar to that of a series of high-pitched "clicks"
Poison dart frogs are a group of small, diurnal, and often brightly colored frogs native to Central and South America
Some species include a number of sub-species 'morphs'. Different morphs represent geographically separated populations of the same species in the wild
These frogs received their common name from the numerous types of poisonous alkaloids found in the skin of many species. The most poisonous dart frog is the Golden Poison Dart Frog
In most species, eggs are laid near the forest floor by the female, usually in a sheltered and moist spot
Poison-arrow frogs are beautiful to look at. Their colours vary from red to yellow to blue. The enemies they encounter are large animals (including humans) who may
step on them. Though poison-arrow frogs carry a deadly poison, they are usually harmless if left alone.
