August 2020: Silverstone’s Poison Frog

Silverstone’s Poison Frog (Ameerega silverstonei)

Throughout August 2020, FaunaFocus will be featuring its first frog species, the Silverstone’s poison frog!

The Silverstone’s poison frog is a large, endangered Dendrobatid red or orange frog with black spotting. This bright coloration deters predators as well as the frog’s toxic alkaloid skin secretions. Males use a vocal sac to making trilling calls that attract females, then guard the eggs and carry them to water after hatching.



Create art inspired by the Silverstone’s poison frog and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!

Event Date Time (CDT)
Free-For-All: Deadline August 28 12:00 pm
Free-For-All: Livestream August 29 7:00 pm
