Mimic Poison Frog & Splash-back poison frog

We just learned about the Golden Poison Frog.

There are a lot of poison frogs in the wild, but some are not that poisonous, they just look a lot like other poisonous frogs so they don't get eaten.

The Mimic Poison Frog looks just like the Splash-back poison frog, but the Mimic is not as dangerous.
The Mimic still has some poison but not as much, but other animals can't tell the difference so they don't eat the Mimic frog just in case it is a super poisonous Splash-back!
