"Mint Morph" Poison Frog

Species name:

Phyllobates terribilis


This metallic pale green frog gets its color based off the hue of the ground within its micro geographic realm. Their populations are large and dispersed in the rainforest among small streams. They are diurnal and given their toxicity, if they are disturbed, their reaction is to hop away opposed to hiding. Despite their poisonous anti-predatory defense, these frogs are highly vulnerable to deforestation.

Conservation Status: 

Classified as endangered by IUCN Red List

Geographic Range:

Pacific Coast of Colombia in the La Brea area
