The ranitomeya amazonica is a poison dart frog that looks so much like the reticulated poison frog. They have smooth black skins with red orange stripes on the backs and bluish netlike pattern on the limbs. As with poison dart frogs, the bright colouration is an indicator of the toxicity of its skin. Active by day they prefer moist forests and insects.
