- 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.
