Strawberry Poison Dart frog

Oophaga pumilio


This group of frogs always have bright colors for warning predators they are poisonous. Indians from Central to South America learned to use the poison in the arrow heads for hunting. The venom is derived of the frog's diet, consisting mostly on ants; the frogs process the ant's chemicals into venomous sustances for protecting against predators.
