Poison Dart Frogs

We just learned about the Mimic Poison Frog & Splash-back poison frog.

There are many other types of poison dart frogs, and they come in just about every color and every type of decoration.
Some have stripes, some have polka dots, some have strange shapes, and some are just bright red, yellow or blue.
These frogs use their bright colors to warn people and predators not to eat them or touch them, because they might get sick or die.
