Yellow-Banded Poison Dart Frog

Dendrobates leucomelas

Though not as toxic as other poison dart frogs, this species is one of the largest and loudest of its kind. Despite its name, not all frogs of this species are yellow. Black spots and bands vary between individuals and some frogs may be orange. These are the only poison dart frogs known to aestivate (enter a hibernation-like state) when it is too hot or dry.
