Can turtles and dart frogs live together in the same habitat?

This is EXTREMELY inadviseable. Dart frogs are toxic. While they are much less toxic in captivity, they still produce toxins. They are also extremely small. Turtles are omnivores, and may decide to try to take a bite. This would be fatal for the frog AND possibly for the turtle. Dart frogs are poor swimmers, and would drown in a water turtle's pool. Box turtles and other land turtles would definitely see the frogs as a potential meal.

In general, it's not a good idea to mix different herp species in one cage. If you are really set on doing so, it must be a HUGE enclosure, with hiding space and habitat for all of the inhabitants, and they must all have the same environmental requirements. Obviously, they should also all be around the same size, and not prone to prey on one another. Dart frogs and turtles--NOT a good mix.

What do poison dart frogs need to live?


Also, to some animals, the bright colors are enough of a warning sign, so the bright colors are really their first line of defense, then poison. In order to get the poison, they must eat poisonous insects, usually ants and grasshoppers, which also provides them the nourishment they need. They also need moisture- if you set them in a desert for about ten minutes, they'd be dead. Other than that they are not particularly adapted, but those things alone restrict them to the rainforest environment.
