Colorful Frog – Poison Frog

Frog is an amphibian, characterized by long hind legs, a short body, webbed digits (fingers or toes), protruding eyes and the absence of a tail. The distribution of frogs ranges from tropic to subarctic regions, but most species are found in tropical rain forests. The frog I am going to discuss about the in this post, is Poison frog (also dart-poison frog, Poison dart frog). It seems not all the frogs in the poster are poison (Thanks to the comment from The G), but at least those are colorful and those color serves as warnings to potential predators to keep away.

  1. Found this page via StumbleUpon. Please do your research :( These are mislabeled and misinformed! Half of these aren’t even poison dart frogs. There are only a couple of poison dart frogs that are dangerously toxic to the touch (including the Golden Poison Dart Frog). I recommend to anyone to do lots of reading about these incredible animals. But make sure it’s a reliable source!

    Thanks

  3. Great collection of frogs. I stumbled here (stumbleupon.com). Giving it a thumbs up so other stumblers will get to see it. One question though: Where’s Kermit?

  4. The vivid skin on the back of splash-backed poison frog is a clear indication of its toxicity. Most predators will keep well away.
