Predators generalize their avoidance of a highly lethal frog by doing the same with anything that vaguely resembles them. This is where our mimic poison frog enters the picture, whose venom is less potent but effective due to its appearance. These poison frog imitators can imitate up to three closely related and dangerous species.
They are also referred to as poison dart imitation frogs, found in tropical rainforests all over eastern Peru’s north. Poison frogs that mimic other species have striking coloring and outgoing personalities. They are adept climbers, and because they are nocturnal, it is better to observe them during the day.
