Golden Poison Dart Frog

Yesterday I went with my family to the Milwaukee Public Museum.  They have cool exhibits there, but my favorite part is all the live animals there.  We took lots of pictures while we were there, so I’ll be writing about lots of frogs and bugs that I saw there.

This is a picture of a golden poison dart frog.  This little frog is the most poisonous animal on earth.  It has enough poison on its skin to kill 20,000 mice or 10 people.  Even touching it can be dangerous.  Don’t kiss this frog!  It is one of a group of frogs called poison dart frogs that live in Central and South America.  They are called poison dart frogs because people used to use these frogs to make poison darts for hunting.

It is gold colored in real life, but in this picture it looks weirdo yellow.  There is a bumble bee poison dart frog hiding behind it.
