Reduced Admission

This poison dart frog or poison arrow frog originally inhabits the rain forests of South America. The conspicuous coloration is a warning signal for potential predators that the animal is poisonous. Some conspicuous species use this effect to deceive predators even though they are not poisonous. However, the poison dart frogs live up to their name and are one of the most poisonous animals in the wild. They receive and accumulate their toxins from their food. Therefore, captive species are often not poisonous because the necessary food sources to gather these toxins are unavailable.
