Here is your blue things in nature fact of the day. Blue poison dart frogs are one of several species of rainforest frogs who get their name because indigenous people use their skin toxins on the tips of darts when hunting. Their poison can cause paralysis or even kill predators. These poisons are not created by the frog itself but are due to their diet of highly poisonous ants in the wild. When kept in captivity, their diet change causes them to lose their toxicity. #blue #frogs #bluepoisondartfrog #natureclub
