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.

Blue Danger

I think of blue as a welcoming color.

In some cases, I would be wrong.

This Blue Poison Dart Frog secrets poison.

I’ll stay safely behind my camera.

I will not be tempted to touch it.
