Can I eat it?
That thing you are seeing, is a frog. A poison dart frog. It is called dart frog since Amerindians first used them to poison the tip of blowdarts.
The colorful skin they have actually indicated the toxic they produce and ward the predators off. Their ability to produce this toxic is also affected by their diet. The species that have great toxicity, derive this from their diet of ants, mites and termites. Others, who have little to none toxic, eat a larger variety of prey.
Poison dart frogs often found in tropical rainforests, including in Bolivia, Costa Rica, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Suriname, French Guiana, Peru, Panama, Guyana, Nicaragua, and Hawaii. They are endemic to humid, tropical environment of Central and South America.
They live in subtropical and tropical forests and lands, freshwater marshes, lakes and swamps. They usually live near ground but could also live on trees.
These frogs are actually very caring towards their children. Usually the parents carry their tadpoles and place them somewhere save; beneath leaves or upper reaches of the rainforest trees. They nurse and feed their children invertebrate until they are big or old enough to take care of themselves.
Before mating, the males usually fight over the most prominent roost to call for females, and after mating, the females fight over desirable nests in return. The fertilization of their eggs is done externally, like most fishes do.
Oh, and when you see two frogs clutching each other, similar to the manner most frogs copulate, please don't immediately think of something nasty. Cause they are actually territorial wrestling matches. Gender does not restricting them from being territorial it seems.
Wow, look. I managed to post another assignment, despite the fact that I'm in the middle of the final test. Hope this post will help my scores, even for a bit... just... a little bit.
And, as always, credits of the photos belong to those who take it (certainly not me), I found it on some websites I don't remember anymore. Ah, most of the information above also taken from mostly wikipedia, and some other websites... though I do did some editing and... things...(?)
Anyway, see you.
