Blue Jeans Poison Dart Frog

Oophaga pumilio


17-22mm in length, toxic skin due to their diet of formicinae ants. the most toxic species in its genus. extremely variable in colour, up to 30 different colour morphs have been observed, many on islands in Panama


rainforest but also degraded habitats and plantations


I could reliably find this frog on a certain trail in Yatama reserve. They seem to live on a slope near a river. Always a joy to see but they can be hard to photograph, as they don't like to stay still for long.
