yeah I think some you can hold as long as you have no openings on the skin

Yeah, I keep seeing pictures of people holding dart frogs... I was always told they were poisonous to the touch, not just upon ingestion... But then again, I've never had the chance to see one in-person to find out, all I know about them is from books that very briefly described them.

Beautiful creature. Thanks for sharing. Small doubt: Isn't it poisonous? Is there no danger letting it touch the skin of your hand?
