The Poison Dart Frog (the DENDROBATIDAE) is found in Central and South American Rainforests. They are known to eat small bugs, ants, etc. they can be found on the ground, and hibernate during the dry season. The brighter the color of the frog, the more poisonous it is. The eggs go on the parent frog bodies to stay wet, and when they hatch they will be carried home. They eat poison ants to get their poison. Because of climate change, they can not hide in as many plants. They may hide in wet dens. They will put newborns in different dens so they do not eat each other. They may also eat plants because bugs may disappear/die. The eggs may be inside of pouches so they do not fall out. They may, in the future, eat poison ivy.
