The Blue Poison Dart Frog, Dendrobates tinctorius 'Azureus’. Frogs in the genus Dendrobatids include some of the most toxic animals on Earth.
Scientists are unsure of the source of poison dart frogs' toxicity, but it is possible they assimilate plant poisons which are carried by their prey, including ants, termites and beetles.
The medical research community has been exploring possible medicinal uses for some poison dart frog poison. They have already developed a synthetic version of one compound that shows promise as a painkiller.
In short these frogs are amazing, coming up with innovative solutions for success, are talented chemists, expert in safely handling toxic substances and are beautiful to look at, just like our staff!
