Slide 1 - POISONOUS DART FROGS
- Poison Dart frogs live in rainforest habitats in Central and South America.
- They can be found in trees, as well as under leaves and logs and rocks on the floor of the forest. Because of their size, from ½ to 2 inches long, they are hard to see.
- Poison frogs warn predators with brilliant colors and patterns.
- Dart Frogs got their name because hunters would tip their arrows in the frog’s poisons.
- Sadly, because people are cutting down rainforests for farming and ranching, Poison Dart Frogs are at risk.
- The Blue Poison Dart Frog is the most endangered due to the pet-shop market.
