7—Poison Dart Frog
Click here to read about the Dendrobates auratus, also known as the Green or Golden Poison Arrow Frog. Indians used the poison from these frogs on their dart tips for hunting. The skin of some species has enough toxin to kill 100 adult humans! It's interesting to note that the frogs lose most of their toxicity when bred in captivity since the frog's poison is manufactured from its diet, particularly a type of ant that the frog eats in the wild.
