wow! just amazing!
Lovely... Very nice !!!
Thank you! Actually, quite easy to discover when in their habitat. They are very vocal, sound a bit like a chorus of insects, diurnal, not shy and brilliantly colored.
Interesting find, not easy to spot judging by the colour of the leaf litter in the background!
Thank you all! Sounds good. I joined the "Poison Dart frog" mission but I must say...it is inaccurate to call these frogs "poison dart" frogs as only three rare species from the family Dendrobatidae in Colombia that have ever been used for tipping the darts of Amerindian hunting projectiles...the family is better known as "poison frogs" as they all carry glandular biochemical compounds of varying toxicities.
What a beauty! Great shot.
Gorgeous little frog!
Great shot! Welcome to Noah!
Excellent Shot Steve, great coloring!

You will see I have changed the order of your images - we are a wildlife site so we request that the organism is the main focus of all photos shared here & that humans do not feature as far as possible. Please can you either replace the 2nd image with one that is cropped to remove the girl's face, or delete it from the spotting. Thanks in advance & welcome to the community!
