The Golden Poison Frog, Phyllobates Terribilis, known also as the Golden Frog, Golden Poison Arrow Frog or the Golden Dart Frog, is a poison dart frog that is native to the Pacific coast of Colombia. The optimal habitat of this frog is the rainforest with high rain rates, altitudes between 100 and 200 meters, temperatures of at least 26 degrees Celsius, and relative humidity of 80 to 90 percent.

It is kept as a bet by herpetoculturists and is considered to be one of the more difficult poison dart frogs to keep due to its relative rarity and the fragile nature of its tadpoles. Like most Ranitomeya species, R. sirensis is a mildly toxic poison dart frog. Its skin secretes small amounts of pumiliotoxins which coat the frog and...
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...
