Natives of South America used the toxins secreted by the frog, which are some of the most toxic biotoxins found, to coat the heads of their arrows. This ensured a quick kill even with a non-lethal wound.
the main use for the poison arrow frog is for people to use its poison as a weapon...horrible if you ask me... :(
it has poison in its body and when something tuces it they become poisened.
thats why its called the poision arrow/dart frog
They eat insects.
To catch their prey.
Poison dart frogs got that name not because the frogs have poison darts - they haven't - but because humans used the poison from the frogs to poison their darts.
No poison dart frog shoots it venom. They ooze if from their skin. The type of venom depends on the species of frog.Poison dart frogs got that name not because the frogs have poison darts - they haven't - but because humans used the poison from the frogs to poison their darts.
Poison Dart Frogs do not shoot their poison. They are named Dart Frogs because natives in South America used to use them to make the tips of their arrows poisonous.
They're small colorful frogs that in the wild ooze really nasty poison from their skin. They get their name from the natives who've used the frogs to make poison for their poisoned darts.

Yes: in fact, some of the North American Indians used to dip the tips of their darts in the poison of the poison dart frog. There are different species of these frogs, and poison levels vary in their degree of potency.
Ancient natives of South America tipped their darts with the poison of the dart frogs. This poison's chemical name is batrachotoxin, which is a very powerful neurotoxin.
They use their poison to kill animals that try to eat them. Poison dart frogs are highly toxic.
The Phylum of a Poison Dart Frog is Chordata. All, or mostly all vertebrates are under that Phylum. Also, all Poison Dart Frogs are under the Phylum Chordata. Thanks, Grace's Reptile and Amphibian Care
Yes, Also that is why I think that they have a part of the species named the poison dart frog
