Spiders, small invertebrates
The blue poison arrow frog is one of more than 100 species of poison
arrow frogs that come in a variety of colors and patterns. These bright
colors warn potential predators to stay away. Poison arrow frogs got their
name because several tribes in Central and South America would use the
poisonous secretions of the frogs to poison their hunting arrows.
mating, a female poison arrow frog will lay 2-6 eggs and both males and
females take care of the eggs, which includes keeping them moist and
protecting them from predators. Once they are old enough, the male frog
will guide the tadpoles on his back to a stream or small pool where they
develop into baby frogs. You can see this poison arrow frog along with
other species of poison arrow frogs in Unseen New World.
