Frogs: The Pretty , The Ugly, The Deadly

 

Yellow-Banded Poison Dart Frog

The Yellow-Banded Poison Dart Frog, also called “bumblebee” because of their bright yellow and black bodies. This frog eats mainly small insects and spiders. As I understand, there is a particular poisonous ant that this frog feeds on but its immune to the poison. Darts’ bright colors act as a deterrent to predators like snakes and spiders that their skin is poisonous and will cause paralysis if eaten.

Blue Poison Dart Frogs

Blue Poison Darts are usually found under rocks and moss that are near streams, where they are constantly searching for small bugs to eat. These species are found on the western slope of Vier Gebroeders Mountain in the Sipaliwini Savanah of Surinam in South America.
