About Me

Scientific Name Dendrobates auratus


This small frog grows to about two inches long and is immediately recognizable for its brilliant green colors, amplified in intensity by a black background. These aposematic colors serve to warn of how poisonous they are.

Fun Facts

  • These frogs are most active after rainstorms, and communicate via buzzing vocalizations. Males are territorial and during the breeding season, females often compete for access to males.
  • Poison Dart Frogs are insectivores and in their native habitat, they specialize in eating certain poisonous ant species from which their bodies’ own poison is derived.
