Blue poison dart frog

The blue poison dart frog is found in southern Suriname and northern to central Brazil. Though all the members of this species are a brilliant blue color, the black spots are unique to each individual. Like most other poison frog species, they lose their toxicity in captivity as a result of an altered diet. Because this species is so easy to keep in captivity, it is popular as a pet.
