August 2020: Silverstone’s Poison Frog
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.
