The Bi-coloured Poison Dart Frog is a close relative of the Golden Poison Frog and, like all Phyllobates frog species, is highly toxic (the second most toxic frog). The toxicity derives from their diet (plant toxins eaten by beetles which are then eaten by the frogs) and is lost in captive bred frogs. Their name comes from their use to poison tips of blow darts by native tribes.
