Strawberry poison dart frog

*This animal is temporarily off exhibit. These frogs inhabit on the floor of tropical rainforests and have a flamboyant aposematic color. When they feel threatened, they will secrete extremely powerful poison from their skin. They accumulate this poison within their body by eating ants and flies in the wild, and when raised in captivity on a controlled diet they lose their toxicity.
