Blue Poison Dart Frog

Common name : Okopipi, Blue poison arrow frog, Dyeing poison dart frog

Scientific name : Dendrobates azureus

Family : Dendrobatidae

Native to : Surinam

Interesting fact : The only natural predator of most of the poison dart frogs family is the snake called Leimadophis epinephelus, which has become resistant to the toxin.

Conservation status : Not Assessed

It’s such a treat to the eyes with its brilliant blue body and dark blue limbs. Their skin toxin comes from some insects that they feed on. These hunch-backed frogs are poor swimmers lacking webbed toes but can grip well with suction cups on their toes. They make great pets as they lose their toxin under captivity.
