Blessed Poison Dart Frog

Ranitomeya benedicta


  • Western South America


  • Rainforests


  • Insects

Before mating, the male finds a spot suited to caring for eggs, then chirps to attract a female.

When the female approves of the male and location, she will lay her eggs. The male usually takes care of the eggs. Sometimes even carrying the hatched tadpoles on his back to water. Like other dart frogs, bright colors help to show predators that they’re toxic.
