Red, orange, yellow, blue, green... even the garish colours of the poison dart frog seem to say: I'm anything but delicious... take heed– I'm poisonous! And indeed he is. His convulsive batrachotoxin poison paralyses muscles and breathing. In humans, poisoning with just 0.002 mg per kg of bodyweight results in death within 20 minutes. The frog's poison can also be useful. In Colombia, Chocó Indians use it for hunting with blowpipes. They lift the frogs up by wrapping leaves around them, then soak their arrows in the liquid they secrete. A small drop is sufficient to kill birds and small mammals. Most frogs are nocturnal, but poison dart frogs are diurnal, when their bright colours are best seen. They are sociable and stay together in small groups. Their biggest enemies are snakes.
