Strawberry poison dart frog

Strawberry poison dart frog,
also called  a blue jean morph,
strawberry-red,
orange-red,
blue or black lower parts,
which are found in most parts of central and south america,
diurnal, brightly colored,
aposematic patterns,
warning potential predators,
living amongst the rainforest,
high altitude shrubland,
flooded grassland they wander,
through montanes and rivers,
lakes and swamps,
amongst the trees above the ground,
secreting toxins through their skin,
as they rummage,
again and again, 
through the marshlands.

    This is odd, I'd gotten this through my email as a comment, Amanda! LOL I'll say I was lucky, have enjoyed this write!:) Poison frogs, and there are poison toads near us. Not many would wish to touch one, but my sister's dog tried to eat one. After a hefty vet bill, he was alright. The toad had slipped into her house, she'd thought the dog had had an accident, the accident happened afterwards! Best wishes, Mikki :)
