Poison Dart Frog

Some Amerindian tribes use this frog’s secretions to poison their darts.

Interestingly, when held in captivity, the frogs are not poisonous.

Scientists think this is because the frogs must eat specific insects to create the poison.

Outside of their natural habitat, those insects are not generally available.

I’m still not sure, I want this frog for a pet.
