Know more About Poisonous Dart Frogs

Poisonous dart frogs are one of the most colourful and fascinating pets in the reptile and amphibian world. These frogs display a variety of interesting interactions and have some of the most complex breeding behaviours in the hobby.

Unlike most amphibians, poison dart frogs are diurnal (active during the day), so all of their activity is carried out right before your eyes! Because poison dart frogs are relatively small, they can be housed in a beautiful "slice of the rainforest" terrarium with lush vegetation, waterfalls and even orchids

There are many misconceptions about poison dart frogs and their care. The most common concern about these frogs is related to their poisons. If you want to know more about them, refer to

With their ominous-sounding name and the hype about their poisons, it’s no wonder there is a fair amount of confusion about their status. Are they dangerous? Are they safe to keep in the home, or best left to zoos? So, here is the straight story!

First, and most importantly, poison dart frogs are completely non-toxic when captive-bred. Even wild-caught frogs gradually lose their poisons in captivity. (Wild-caught poison dart frogs should always be treated with caution, due to the possibility that their skins may contain poisons.)

In order to create their toxins, poison dart frogs need certain chemicals, which are present in the insects they eat in the wild. The exact nature of these ingredients is poorly understood at this point, but one thing is known for sure, these poisons are not in their diet in captivity.
