Poison dart frogs of Pierella Ecological Garden!!


There are various kinds of colorful species of frogs in Costa Rica and one of them is poison dart frogs!!

They are a group of species which is known for their brilliant color and toxic skin.

Their bright color of skin warns predators not to eat them.


The toxins from poison dart frogs are applied to the darts and arrows used by some south american native tribes for hunting.

The poison helps to quickly kill the animals being hunted.
