The Mimic Poison Frog (Ranitomeya imitator) is a type of poison dart frog located in the north-central region of eastern Peru. Like most other Ranitomeya species, R. imitator has a mild toxicity compared to other poison dart frogs. It produces the potent pumiliotoxin B, but its small size limits the amount of poison it can secrete. Like other poison dart frogs, it does not produce toxin in captivity. It most likely gains its poison from consuming toxic insects or other invertebrates within...
