REAL POISON DART FROGS:   DON”T WORRY – COMPLETELY NON TOXIC IN CAPTIVITY
Poison dart frogs are in the class of amphibians. They can be found in the rain forests, but only in Central and South America where they like to stay on the floor of the  forests in moist and shady places.   They are extremely small, most only  1/2  to 1 inch in length. They  have  brilliant and various colors. For example, they can be green or blue with black patches and  also have flash colors, which are exposed when the animal jumps. These colors warn other animals that the frog is not fit to eat.

The Sanctuary is home to several species, including  “Bumble Bee Frogs” .The poison dart frog has special skin that can secret poisons which  kill other animals.  The biggest environmental change for the poison arrow frog is that rain forests are being cut down, which means they are losing their only home.

An environmental danger for the poison dart frog is the decreasing of the ozone. This is very important to them because they have extremely sensitive skin and the ultraviolet rays are damaging their skin.

fire bellyORIENTAL FIREBELLY TOADS: The Fire-bellied Toads is a group comprising eight species of small toads (most species typically no longer than 1.6 in or 4.1 cm) belonging to the genus Bombina. Common variants of the name ‘Fire-bellied toad’ include ‘firebelly toad’ and ‘firebellied toad’.

“Fire-bellied” is derived from the brightly colored red- or yellow-and-black patterns on the toads’ ventral regions, which act as  a warning to predators of the toads’ reputedly foul taste. The other parts of the toads’ skins are green or dark brown. When confronted with a potential predator, the toad arches its back, raising its front and back legs to display the bright coloration . They are aquatic and the boys “bark” at the girls !
