|The Poison-Dart Frog, aka the Poison-Arrow Frog, gets it's name because it secretes poison that is used by natives in hunting. It's bright colors warn would-be predators of the danger of eating them. After mating, the female carries her tadpoles from the forest floor into a bromiliad plant high in the canopy and puts them in a small puddle of water, from which they eventually emerge as frogs. |
