Mantella Baroni is a beautifully coloured frog where the colours serve to stop their predators from eating them as their skins contain toxins. It is black with blotches of lime green near the sides and legs. Active during the day, they feed on ants, beetles and mites. Their natural habitats include swamp forests and rainforests near water bodies.
