I am a Poison dart frog and I live in The Amazon. People think I am green to camouflage from predators but I do exactly the opposite. I make predators draw attention to me with brightly coloured skin. The bright colour serve as a warning to other animals that could be poisonous by doing this, this makes animals stay well away. I am golden arrow poison frog, for example, they have enough poison in its skin to kill over ten people!! But luckily I’m not one of them.
Did you know??
Some Amazonian Indians put poison from frogs and plants on their arrow tips when hunting in the forest !!
I go out hunting for food every morning I love bugs but I have to be careful on what bugs I eat. Due to tiny but deadly insects are every where in the rainforest. Mosquitoes carry many horrible diseases such as malaria and yellow fever, both of which can be deadly to humans also animals. Even though I carry poison and diseases, other animals carry different deadly threats. Which would not be good mixing with mine. To not get poisoned I need it gab them with the back of my hard tounge to squeeze the deadly threats out of them. Then after all that I can finally have my brecky for the day.
