Strawberry poison dart frog

The strawberry poison dart frog is not the most toxic poison frog out there, but it is the most toxic of its genus, Oophaga. And you'll want to be wary of this species because you might not know what you're looking at, at least perhaps not at first. This species is usually bright red, but there are somewhere between 15 and 30 different color morphs, ranging from completely red, to the "blue jeans" coloration shown here, all the way to green with black spots! Even though its toxin is much weaker than species in the Phyllobates genus, it still packs a punch, causing swelling and a burning sensation.
