These are one of the few poison dart frogs that can secrete skin toxin on their own. The others get it from eating certain insects. Yellow in colour, their dark legs give them their common name. Their skin toxin keeps their predators away and they feed on ants, termites and tiny beetles. Moist and humid tropical rainforests make their home.
