POISON DART FROG

Poison Dart frogs live in rainforest habitats in Central and South America.  They can be found in trees, as well as under leaves and logs and rocks on the floor of the forest.  Because of their size, from to 2 inches long, they are hard to see.  Poison frogs warn predators with brilliant colors and patterns.  There are many species of poison frogs that can be found in every color under the sun! They prey on invertebrates, especially certain ant species, which build up really strong poisons in the frog. 

Dart Frogs got their name because hunters would tip their arrows in the frog’s poisons. Sadly, because people are cutting down rainforests for farming and ranching, Poison Dart Frogs are at risk.  The Blue Poison Dart Frog is the most endangered due to the pet-shop market.
