Phyllobates terriblis Golden Poison Dart Frog

How Dangerous Are Golden Poison Dart Frogs?

The golden poison dart frog is considered to be one of the most poisonous animals in the world. An average frog might contain around one milligram of poison in its skin and this small amount is thought to be capable of killing between 10 and 20 people. This bright yellow frog is found in the rainforests of Colombia.

The golden poison dart frog ingests the components of the poison through its natural diet, and secretes the poison onto its skin as a defense mechanism. Scientists are still unsure exactly which prey provides the lethal substance, but do know that captive-bred frogs without access to wild food do not produce the poison.

More about poison dart frogs:

•The golden poison dart frog is social and will live in groups of up to six in the wild.

•The poison secreted by the frogs is often used by indigenous people to poison the darts and other weapons with which they hunt their food.

•Adult frogs will carry newly

Why Do Octopuses Crawl When They Can Swim?  



Octopuses crawl when they can swim because their cardiac systems don’t operate at full capacity. Although an octopus has three hearts, only two of them beat while they are swimming. This is because two of the hearts are used to pump blood to the octopuses’ gills, while the third heart is reserved for circulating blood to the organs only.

Since their two hearts are not pumping as much blood throughout their bodies as they would normally, octopuses can become fatigued while swimming. Crawling conserves their energy while still allowing them to travel through the water.

More about octopuses:

•An octopus can squeeze into a small opening that accommodates its beak – for instance, 50 pound (22.68 kg) octopuses have been known to fit through 2 inch (5.08 cm) holes.

Two-thirds of the nerves in an octopus are located in its arms, rather than its brains   :o – this is necessary to enable a protective mechanism that prevents its eight arms from tangling or the suckers on its limbs from sticking together.

Octopuses will eat their own species – giant Pacific octopuses regularly kill and consume smaller octopuses.
