Deadly and Beautiful
|Phyllobates bicolor, one of the 3 Colombian|
species that are lethal to humans
There was an especially large crowd gathered around at the 'Colombia's Terrible Trio' display, featuring some of the most toxic animals on the planet! These frogs are always hungry! One important thing to note: the frogs are HARMLESS in captivity—Though I wouldn't recommend handling one! They get their poison from their specific diet in the wild. Here at the garden they are fed an assortment of small bugs, which keeps them healthy and happy, and fortunately for us—harmless.
We wear gloves when handling them anyway, for their protection and ours. Come and check them out, these frogs are not shy!
