A single animal can kill ten adult males with its venom. Among the more than 100 species of poison dart frogs, these vividly colored amphibians are among the biggest. Because it is so toxic, even touching it can be harmful. Therefore, it is no surprise that this little but deadly frog has so few predatory animals.
Nevertheless, despite all of that, the species was helpless against humans. This lethal animal is still incredibly vulnerable to habitat loss brought on by logging, gold mining, and deforestation for agricultural development, followed by crop planting. Because it is endemic to a limited portion of Colombia, the Golden Poison Frog requires our immediate attention.
