Dyeing Poison Dart Frog

Dendrobates tinctorius

These frogs will typically lay their eggs on land on broad leaves. Once laid, the male takes charge of watching and taking care of the eggs. After the eggs hatch, the tadpoles climb onto the male’s back, and he takes them to a nearby water source. When fully grown, they return to the land where they spend their adult lives.
