The Poison dart frogs of Panama, South America, differ from other genera in having more than two colors

With a range of bright colors, these poison dart frogs aren’t just some big show-offs. They are extremely poisonous, and a single frog can have enough poison to kill 20,000 mice. Scientists think these frogs assimilate plant poisons carried by their prey, including ants, termites, and beetles.

Not all frogs in this genus are poisonous or brightly colored; quite a few are elegantly camouflaged, their skin patterned with brownish tones. During the breeding season, parent frogs of some species guard their unborn offspring for almost two to three weeks, occasionally watering them with their urine.
