Welcome to the poison dart frog website

Did you know?
The most toxic poison frog is Phyllobates terribilis from Colombia, which can produce enough toxin to kill eight people!

A fully planted vivarium can contain mosses, ferns, epiphytes like bromeliads and even flowering orchids!

Poison frogs (also known as arrow poison frogs, or poison dart frogs) are incredibly beautiful animals, but like all exotic pets, they do require some knowledge in order to thrive in captivity. Start by reading the article Introduction to dart frogs for an overview on these frogs, and the dart frog maintenance section, for more about culturing livefoods and setting up the terrarium (also known as a vivarium)
