Artist's Description

Poison Dart Frog has great toxicity, derived from their diet of ants, mites and termites.

These amphibians are often called “dart frogs” due to the Amerindians’ indigenous use of their toxic secretions to poison the tips of blowdarts.

Poison dart frogs are endemic to humid, tropical environments of Central and South America.

Many species of poison dart frogs are dedicated parents.

Many species of poison dart frogs have recently experienced habitat loss, chytrid diseases, and collection for the pet trade.

Some are listed as threatened or endangered as a result. Zoos have tried to counteract this disease by treating captive frogs with an antifungal agent that is used to cure athlete’s foot in humans.
