Blue Poison Dart Frog (Dendrobates tinctorius)

Series of top and side view illustrations of the Blue Poison Dart Frog

The blue poison dart frog, Dendrobates tinctorius ”azureus”, is a poison dart frog that lives in the forests surrounded by the Sipaliwini Savanna in northern Brazil. They are a mainland animal, but stay close to water sources. Its bright blue skin is darker around its limbs and stomach, and it serves as a warning to predators. The glands of poisonous alkaloids is also another defense mechanism, as it paralyzes, and can sometimes kill, a predator. They hop around in short leaps, and they can be very territorial and aggressive to their own species and others. Their diet consists of ants, beetles, flies, mites, spiders, termites, maggots, and caterpillars.

The Blue Poison Dart Frog has an overall length between 1.5”-2.5” (3.8-6.4 cm), body width of .67”-1.18” (1.7-3 cm), sitting height of roughly .98”-1.73” (2.5-4.4 cm), and weight between .28-.32 oz (8-9 g). The typical lifespan of the Blue Poison Dart Frog is between 10-20 years.

Anura, including frogs or toads, is the most diverse of the three amphibian orders. There is no formal distinction between frogs and toads, with toads generally being more a warty species. Frogs are typically carnivores though some eat fruit. All adult frogs, except one species, do not have tails.
