Dendrobatidae - Poison Frogs


 

Classification

 Kingdom: Animalia
 Phylum: Chordata
 Subphylum: Vertebrata
 Class: Amphibia
 Order: Anura 
 Family: Dendrobatidae

Yellow-banded Poison FrogThe species in this family are found in Central and South America. Poison frogs are also known as poison-arrow frogs because the poison they secrete on their skin was rubbed on the tips of blowguns by some native tribes in Colombia . In some species, the poison is strong enough to kill a human.

Many of the frogs in this family are brightly colored. Their bright coloring is a type of coloration called a badge that warns predators away.

The species in this family are 1-1.5 inches in length and live in trees or on the ground. They eat ants, beetles, and mites. Scientists think that they get their poison from the organisms they eat.

Tadpoles in this family are carried on the backs of the adults to a body of water. The body of water can be water that has gathered in a crevice or a flower! In some species the male carries the tadpoles, and in other species the female carries them. There are around 157 species in this family.
