Green and Black Poison Dart Frog

Dendrobates auratus

Despite its name, this frog actually comes in a variety of colors. Its colorations include either a blue, green, or yellow with black or brown spots and bands. Poison dart frogs are not naturally poisonous but gain their toxicity from small insects they consume. Toxins accumulate within the frog’s body and are exuded through its skin, making it poisonous to touch.
