Caption: Arrow poison frog. The poisonous frog Dendrobates sp. Its vivid warning colours indicate the toxicity of its skin. The South American Indians use the cutaneous poison of dendrobatid frogs for the tips of their arrows. It contains a neurotoxin which can paralyse a bird or a small mammal almost immediately. These frogs are highly prevalent in the forests of Central and South America. This one is a newly discovered species, found at the Jatun Sacha Reserve in the Ecuadorian Amazon.
