Colorful and Poisonous Frogs

Bacchanalia of colors that can be lethal Not all beautiful frogs depicted here are poisonous, but those who are – can be very deadly indeed. The most poisonous animal is not a snake or a spider. It’s a beautiful little frog! “Most frogs produce skin toxins, but the dart poison frogs from Central and South America are the most potent of all. The golden poison frog, called terribilis (the terrible), is so toxic that even touching it can be dangerous. A single terribilis contains enough poison to kill 20,000 mice or 10 people. It is probably the most poisonous animal on Earth.” (source) Click to enlarge:
