Poison Dart Frogs
The name says it all. These frogs are, in fact, poisonous. Don’t be fooled by their small size. Poison dart frogs are small, brightly colored frogs that are native to Central and South America. They get their name from the toxic secretions on their skin, which were once used by indigenous people to poison the tips of darts and arrows. One single frog carries enough poison to paralyze and kill ten grown men. It is important to avoid touching or handling poison dart frogs, as their toxins can be absorbed through the skin or mucous membranes. Their bright, vibrant color is a sign of just how poisonous they are. If you see one, don’t go near it (via Business Insider).
