The Poison Dart Frog

The Arrow Poison Frog’s scientific name in a Latin is Dendrobates Auratus. The biome that the arrow poison frog lives in leafs and trees and eats bugs that live on the ground like fruit flies and wax worm. They mostly spend their life in the moist part of the rainforest mostly in Central and Southern America. It needs to live The frog is abiotic when it is dead. The frog is biotic when it is living. It is now almost an endanger animal.

The Poison Dart Frog mainly eats bugs that live on the ground like fruit flies and wax worm. In the zoo they eat crickets dusted with vitamin and mineral powered. They will also eat small or insects. The Poison Dart Frog doesn’t really have any predators since the poison is said to taste like sour or bitter flavor so the animals that tries to eat the Poison Dart Frog spits it out and does not eat the frog. It however will get into fights with its own kind in defense to its area that it lives. It is very territorially over the area it lives in.

The Poison Dart Frog can live with other animals in the rainforest such as shrews and wheals. The Poison Dart Frog however is very territorial. So for example the frog will attack the predator is it sets foot in it territory or were it has it nest or younglings. The Poison Dart Frog can live with birds since the frog lives low on the rainforest floor or in amongst the tree and foliage. The birds live high up. A pond is very useful for the poison dart frog since it helps it from drying out when it is in a time of drought and helps it survive.

The Poison Dart Frog has adapted to its surrounding by using Poison on its skin to help predators from eating it. It also is sometimes green to blend in with its surroundings.

In conclition the Posion Dart Frog is well suites it’s ecosystem. When I say them at the Toronto Zoo, I love there colour and how it is done.
